What is the mecanno looking stuff I have seen in here? It looks like it is pre-rigged with holes for simple fabrication. Is this stuff cost effective/reliable? Are there any other examples of this stuff being used for brew rigs?
Moxie - The product I used on mine is called "Metal Lumber" by Republic Storage. My rig is very stable as-is but I will be adding some additional bracing for overkill. I am slightly concerned that with a full keggle and plenty of heat, some warping could occur. I will report back after the first full test. I think from a time perspective, this option is quite good compared to welding up a frame. It really comes down to wether you have the time, skill, equipment etc. to weld a frame.

Agreed. This newly hired assistant is not working out as planned. When I said "go check the boil kettle thermocouple and make sure it's secure", he simply said "BOON!", and proceeded tug the 'balloon' downward. He's been with me for a year but I had to let him go. Good help is hard to find these days.....

Default My Single Tier Stand

Here's my single tier stand. made out of adjustable shelving 24"x24"x60" which sits on top of a dolly. A no weld design for less than $70.00! Propane tanks are stored on sub shelving on the right.

Almost done with my wooden stand.



Just need to add a shelf for the propane tank. Went way over budget with the bolts, but will make it easier to move.
