I just built this last weekend. I'm trying to simplify brewing a little bit.

Here's the mostly finished product.

Bottom frame. I used a Kreg pocket jig to screw the frame together.
It made it simple to build!

Casters. The most expensive part of the build! They don't fully rotate 360 so I have to lift and push from the opposite direction I want it to roll.
