Nice setup, love the coil... you make that yourself?

The coil is from Northern Brewer, but I made the bracket to hold it. I needed to keep the coil centered in the volume of water and off the bottom of the HLT. It is also quite rigid, so I can connect/disconnect one-handed no problem.

I am still working on mine and planned on doing a build thread after i got a bit further on with it.. But here are some pics.

Starting to go up.



Starting to clean up some of the welds.



Paint and casters on.



Burner shields just sitting in place.



Another burner shield mounting pic. I welded a tab to the back of the frame to hold it from twisting.



I hope to get a good amount of time this weekend and finish the trim work on the burners and start plumbing the gas.

I will take any input.

Cheers fellas.

Scott

Espi (Scott), did you paint stainless steel? Is there a reason to put high temp paint on stainless (other than wanting to see the stand in a diff color)?

The stand isn't stainless. Just the burner shields are. Its just standard 16 gauge 2 inch square stock. I am sure this is the nicest this thing will ever look.

Gotcha. Assumption on my part; it just looked super shiny after you welded it together.

Nice, 3 penrose kettles. I have one and love it. I was going to get 2 more in time to replace my keggles, but I guess that's not going to happen now.

Default brew rigs/stands

Has anyone checked out globalindustrial.com for the wesco mini-winch stacker? It's pricey but it's the only thing I've found to lift those heavy carboys. Haven't bought yet.
