Well after a long delay I was able to finish up the stand. I installed the burners and the windshields. No it is time to buy all the hardware and start putting it together. It is not the best looking stand out there, but it is definitely functional and will get the job done..

The plan I have come up with is to hard plumb as much of the system as I can and keep the hoses to a minimum for easy use..

Well after a few months of collecting parts and doing other little projects I got around to almost finishing the setup.
Here is what I have. I've got the SS herms coil in and still need to put the FB in the mt. Getting ready to do a test brew on the 13th of Oct. Gonna try and figure out what to brew. Maybe a barleywine?

Sorry, I misspoke - what are the lengths of your hoses? I'm trying to minimize heat loss and am trying to figure out how much to order.

Looks great, nice design. Having just been through a stand build myself, I suggest taking the time to paint it before brewing. That mild steel will rust quickly if you don't.

Enjoy, you're going to make a lot of great beer on that stand!

I originally had ordered 15 feet of hose. I didn't want to over complicate it so I have two of the hoses that will be used for different parts of the brew day. I still have one connection to make and I still have about 5 feet left. Two of the hoses are ~3ft, and the other two are ~ 2ft long. I can get exact measurements if you would like them. But I think 15 ft was good enough for me.

I noticed the rust coming through in a few spots, and I had to go back and touch up with some more high temp paint.
