Hello,

I am going to be starting my HERMS project soon and I was wondering if anyone has any scamatics for a single tier brewing stand. I want to use angled steel. I am thinking 2x2 about thickness. I have no clue how to weld so I contacted a shop here in Tulsa and they told me they just need a scamatic with measurements and what not. Any ideas or help?

Thanks

Ask Lonnie Mac on www.alenuts.com to get his Brutus plans.

So i bought this stand from Sams for like $120. It has a 500lb limit so it will do what i need until i can get something welded. It has wheels and was suggested by the dude at my local home brew store.

are you going to fly sparge or batch sparge? What are you using for kettles? Are you going electric or gas? I have the plans for my stand but its made from 2x2" square steel tubing... PM me if you want them... Also, they are nearly the same as "nicksteck"'s plans from HBT, with a few variations (tippy dump option)

Did you get the Costco one?

You'll need pumps and shields for that one.

I am using keggles and going all electric. I was planning on fly sparging. Thanks for the offer. I am going to see if this stand does the trick for now.

Didn't know you were going all electric. Splash guards definitely.

Yes, all electric. I want to be able to brew in my garage with the out having the door open, plus for me, there are a few other benefits to having an electric system.
