Hey Lars, with a user name like that, you must have brewing buddies named Thor and Magnus, because that stand is totally medieval!

No Thor and Mag haven't shown up for a brew day yet. I was trying for the old factor cart look.

You guys make my head hurt! I have been reading this thread for three days now (and I am only on page 63) and am so homesick for my stove top stock pot. I have about two years more work to do here in Saudi Arabia before I can even have a beer! I now have way too many ideas to implement, I think I will needs to build one of each system just to free up some memory in my brain. HERMS, RIMS, CHEM.... beer beer beeeeer! My home is in White City, KS. and my name for my brewery is Wedrinkbeer KGB Inc..

I was thinking about making a three tier system that is sectioned. Meaning that I would build the single tier frame then add a semi-permanent two step frame that could be removable. This would be removed once I evolve to more of a RIMS. Like I stated, I am only on page 63 of this thread and I have 60 more to go. So I don't know if anyone has done this yet. Please let me know what you think of this idea. The step framing could be used for a two batch brew day after removing it from the main frame setup.

George

Old factory cart, I can see that, with the cast iron wheels. While brewing this summer during a 94 degree day, my rubber wheels left 1/2" dents in my driveway blacktop. My wife asked why there were holes in our driveway, of course I knew what they were from but played dumb. P.S. you are going to love that big DUDA chiller.

I haven't toasted or smoked my own barley on it but I could. The grill has 2 large gas burners but there is also charcoal/smoke box on the far side.

I'll be adding a pump for the HLT on the bottom before the next brew, the rest of it is all gravity fed. Broke it in with a nice American Brown Ale and hit all the targets pretty close, the FG was a little low because I thought I'd lose more to boil off with these new kettles but I guess I was wrong.
That is sweet- details?

We have since added a wooden bottom and here it is with the keggle.
Nice rig, I noticed the missing wheel.... many choices for naming your brew now. ie. Wheel Gone Bad Brew; The Missing Wheel; Chuck Wheel Wheat, just to name a few.
