Posted in thread: Paint or powder coat for my new Brew stand? on 09-16-2016 at 03:03 PM
Powder coat might not work around the burners. I added 2 layers of "heat wrap" and it's
helping, but I think it's short term. The place I had it done said they would blast it back to
bare and put cera...

My Wife has a Silhouette (cuts vinyl basically). "Printed" out gallon numbers with half gallon
"-". I put these on the metal part of the sight glass. Looks great.Todd

My stand has 2 bg14 burners few by VR8200 valves. One burner works great. The other burner I

Things were a little rocky, as expected. Learned a few things though.Not sure about the sparge
