Woody, I'm popping around my own brewstand ideas, and at the moment am having an internal (and external, with SWMBO!) fight over whether to build it from carbon steel and paint, or just spend the extra cash and go with stainless... what finish did you use on yours?

Sorry for the huge delay in responding.
The paint is just black enamel, sprayed with a gun. It holds up well except on the burner guards.

Where did you get your steel from? I have been looking for a while and can't find anything I like. How thick and what dimensions did you use?

Local steel yard, very thin gauge 2" square tube but I don't recall what wall thickness.

You want dimensions for the vertical piece, for the shelves, or????

Question on the CFC: do you run sanitizer through it each time you use it? Sweet rig too!

Bringing a thread back from 2009... nice!

I just recirculate some hot wort during the boil through my CFC to sanitize it. You could push some sanitizer through it also. You would need to do it every time though since you never know what's been growing in there between brews.

I do sanitize before each use. I know the wort is going in there boiling hot, but by the time it exits, it is room temperature so whatever nasties might lurk there aren't going to be affected by temperature. I don't want them in my beer.

Whenever I brew, I always make up a couple gallons of starsan in a five gallon bucket with a spigot on it. At some point during the boil, I blast water through the CFC using the garden hose nozzle and then run some Starsan through. I leave the starsan in there until I am ready to chill the wort.

After chilling I again blast water through the CFC. It is amazing what comes out.

Thanks for your reply to an old thread. I was recently introduced to a CFC like the one you have and had to wonder what guys do about the inside. The immersion chiller is obvious and easy, but not nearly as efficient as this setup.

I'm looking for ideas on vertical stands and yours is exactly what I'm after. They say the greatest compliment is imitation. Thanks!
