Kevin,

Looking real good! I agree, building the brewery is as much fun as brewing. One comment though. The stand looks high. If you are going to remove a keggle or kettle full of wet grain it's gonna be awful heavy. Lowering the stand a touch my make it a little easier on the back. Just a suggestion, for all I know you may be an Olympic weight lifter.

I prefer to have the stand at a height that you can look in the kettles and that is easy to stir you mash.
This is pretty easy to do on a single tier system.

RK there is no standard, you just need to be comfortable in removing a full keggle from it. My current stand places the top of the keggles at about the middle of my chest. This allows for easy additions and a good view. It is equipped with a tippy dump so I never need to remove the keggle. My first stand was much lower placing the top of the keggle at waist level for easy keggle removal.
