Thanks for the inspiration. I hope to get my rig on this thread sometime this year!
Interesting! I am not sure a 10G cooler is heavy enough for most people to really need this option. But there might be some who use a larger cooler, or who have physical limitations that would make that a very nice feature to have!

Good idea!

Well, my summer is practically gone and I have still not designed my system, let alone started building it. I better get cracking!

I have been waiting a long time to be able to post my rig on this thread, and I thank every one who helped me out along the way. She has two batches under her belt and so far I couldn't be happier.

Thanks again,
Pat

Finally got my new system up and running, after more than a year of not brewing.

The stand is made out of kitchen-style heavy duty wire shelving. Turkey fryers for HLT and Boil Kettle, with sight glasses, valves, and thermometers. Mash tun is a 10 gallon cooler with a false bottom.

First brew day went fantastic. Only real problems was that the propane hose to the top burner isn't long enough.

After drooling after the systems in this thread and being ashamed of my bits and pieces build, I dropped the cash and built myself a single tier.

Saturday was the first brew day and everything went as planned. Still having various issues with getting the pump primed but it's getting better. This photo was taken after the boil while I was recirculating the wort for chilling.

The whole thing is welded. My brother-in-law helped me with that (by "help" I mean he did all of the welding)

ANYONE have any idea what i should be looking at? I looked up the casters on caster city and there is no way i'm going to pay over 80 bucks for casters.... I know someone out there has found some casters to fit inside for MUCH cheaper then that.

Please help me out here, my back would really appreciate it. :-)
Not sure if they deliver to the US, but in canada try Busy Bee Tools ( www.busybeetools.com )

Just a suggestion would be to move the pump to the lowest point of your plumbing and it will help with priming issues. That long line on your inlet will collect air. Support that above your pump. Just a thought.
