Looks great! This may just inspire me to try my hand at stainless welding. Any progress on the stand? I would love to see how it comes out when polished.

Thank you, the stainless welding was really no more difficult than regular steel. You should give it a try.

As far as progress, once I got the stand functional I started brewing on it every weekend with the intention of polishing it after a few batches were in the fermenters...then summer hit and it's been over 100 in Oklahoma every day since the second week of June. As soon as the heat breaks and my garage is below 105 I am going to get to polishing!!

They're 15's. And yes, I brew 10 gallon batches all the time...no boilovers.

I have finally, slowly, made some progress on polishing this beast. Stainless is a MF'er to polish... I''ll try to get some new photos going this weekend once I get everything knocked down to 220 grit. AFter that I'll take it to 400 grit before going to black compound thru the finer compounds. Hopefully it will look cool.

Any issues with burner performance with your pots sitting directly on the top frame? Some have mentioned problems / concerns with the pot blocking the path for burner exhaust / airflow. Some have added 1/2" stand-offs to solve this. I'm in the process of designing my system and would prefer not to have to do this so I'm curious how you're finding your system to work.

Thanks!

I havent had any problems with this. Banjo burners are insane, you can only turn them up part of the way before the flame on a 15g kettle is blasting up the sides anyway.....I can run them just as high as I could in the original Bayou Classic cooking stand that one of them came in.

I am planning on adding wind-shields around the burners and I'm wondering if that will restrict them too much...but I guess I'll just have to try it and see.

By the way, for anyone thinking about building a stand like this (or like any of the other cool designs on this site), just do it. It makes your brewday so much easier and your process so much more repeatable. My stand is taken apart in the garage right now while I polish the frame. I thought about brewing this weekend anyway with the old cooler, camp burner, etc......yeah screw that. I'll wait until I have this back together. SO much easier.

Could you have used smaller ss stock? It looks really beefy. I like your design, but need to be frugal. I will be using three converted sankeys but would like to be able to use the same stand if I decide to increase my boiling volume to 1bbl.

I like the look of square tubes. Don't know much about ss yet...
