Default What kind of paint do you use for your brewstand?

I have a single tier Brutus type stand and I've painted it with flat black engine paint and everytime I use it, paint starts to peel around and underneath my kettles. I've tried repainting it and even put my kettles on metal grates instead of directly on the stand and the paint still peels. It's not only aesthetically not appealing but there are tiny bits of rust that develops (stand is not SS). Besides powder coating, is there another option I can use? Thanks.

I've used the header paint on areas like this for my powder coated brewmagic and had no issues with flaking or bubbling.

And yes, if you caught that, even powder coat can have issues.

Brake caliper paint works well too.

Powder coating will eventually have issues... Heat is heat, and brewing uses some heat!!! BBQ paint seems to hold up ok, just not a lot of color options!!!

Best mine ever looked was the day I brought it home from being powder coated!!! ImageUploadedByHome Brew1410493609.845730.jpg

Very nice stand indeed. Do you place your kettles directly on the steel or do you use some sort of grate? Thankfully, mine is flat black so it's not super obvious with the peeling paint.

It's powder coated. I found a local place, the guy told me if I picked a color he had on the shelf I'd be looking at $80. If he had to order a color $150... He just happens to have orange on hand!!!!

My kettles are converted kegs, I place them directly on the stand!!!

Ceramic Coating is the $#!+... But get ready to break out your wallet. I did the exhaust manifolds on my Chevelle, that was $350!!!
