Scrapyard Brewing ( brew stand build on the cheap )
3 Attachment(s)

I started a single tier brew - distill stand build a few weeks ago, with the goal being able to brew by the end of april for the first time. I going to try and keep a record of the build here.I will document the price of components, and the current progress on the brew stand in this thread. Prices and components will be updated when the build is complete.

I would like sugestions for critical pieces of equipment which I should build or buy.

For the stands frame I used about 60' of unistrut which my neighbor donated.

The needle valves I'm using are like these.
They are 1/4 inches F x 1/4 inches MNPT.
