Don't know how to weld and don't know anyone that does. And I'm to cheap to buy a pre-fab stand.

I have just finished the base, and now I am considering either a rims or herms system controlled by a pid controller, any ideas which one I should go with? I still have some work do but this thing is 99% done. Let me know what you guys think.

I was going to brew tomorrow but after looking at all of these I'm staying in bed with the shades drawn and feel sorry for myself.

Thanks!

OK here is the first of several to come. I'm making the stand out of aluminum since the tubing was donated. This picture is a little dated. I now have the gas manifold welded up with fittings and am waiting for my solenoid valves. I am going to polish all the kegs and finished one this past weekend (I found a new method that I will post in the "polishing your keg" thread). $80 for the pneumatic casters since I will be carting this thing around my house and on the road as well. I have 3 hurricane burners for natural gas.

I thought I'd stick a few pictures up of my folding sculpture now that it's finally finished and functional. I works well and folds up out of the way to keep SWMBO happy.

This looks remarkably similar to a design i have recently sketched out. Is this a two-pump closed system or do you have a third pump in there somewhere that I am not seeing?

Additionally, how are you removing your MLT for cleaning? Or are you?
