I think Blichmann uses the same floor standing burner on the Top Tier. I have mounted a Blichmann on a stand I built for a local guy and it worked great. I also sold several burner mount bracket...

My Weldless Build Using Strut

Agreed. The Blichmann burners with the SS wind shields are very nice and make for a nice setup on a strut stand with the burner mounts I sell. Like you say just take the legs off and the mounts...

Yeah, no doubt that would be nice with SS on the top. However, if you see a stand done in SS compared to a galvanized one, after a year of brewing, they do not look all that different. Spills...

Yeah, saw those, but the female side has a step, and then two boss' and lettering on the OD. I thought I saw some with a nice uniform close to polished OD.

Anyone find where you can buy these? Looking for one with a smooth wall on the OD of the FPT side so they can be welded to a pot without any lathe cleanup work.

btbnl, if you had made your opening just a little smaller (like 15.5"), you could've used a standard "L" fitting, taken the feet off the Blichmann burner, and screwed right into the boss' on the...

As for mounts I am...

Same here. I went with a 10-tip jet burner and run it off of house NG. NOT GOOD when low flame and control is needed, but man, on full blast there is nothing that heats faster that I've found. My...

Hmm, odd. My second attempt just finished up at 1.012. About right on. Tastes a bit drier, but I'd think 030 is still a bit too high. Like you say, might as well try to get it going again.

Haven't actually done that yet, but I did brew this again last weekend. I made some tweaks based off more feedback from the brewer at Weyerbacher. Most of it centered around the yeast, and why I...

Exactly, the utility of the holes being all over the place, and the weight loss, trump the better looks IMHO.

I agree with the posts above. I buy mine at the local electrical supplier for around $15 each in galvanized. SS I think is around $80/ea. For most stands you need five 10' sections, so that takes...

I was going to reply with that observation as well. The double holed "L" brackets are a bit cheaper than the THK-233 corner fittings, but yes, you are then relying on one 1/2" bolt bearing the...
