Any stability issues with that?

By my count you have 5 shelves (at $5.99 a pop) and 6 poles (at $9.99 for a 2 pack) for a total of $60. Can't really beat that.

My 15 and 20 gallon Concord pots just arrived today. Construction is very sturdy, heck they look a lot like my Blichmann. They were also packaged very well. Will be drilling them out this weekend.

Yeah, I snapped a plastic one in half trying to get it out of a bung the other day. Just left a good scratch on my one hand. Would have been a disaster if it was glass.
