The pumps with the green motor casings are chugger pumps. They will run you around $100 bucks. I got two from Chuggerpumps.com and it cost 11 bucks in shipping from New Jersey to Atlanta. The pumps with black motor casings are March 809's and run anywhere from $115 - $145 depending on where you get them. Pretty much the only difference between the two is that the chugger has a stainless steel head.

Thanks. How do the 6" burners work? I noticed the original post had burners that looked to be about twice the size...probably more than twice the costs too.

I have not had a chance to hard plumb my burners in yet. The bigger burners in the earlier posts are 30 bucks from agrisupply.com and the 6 inch burners are 10 bucks. It puts out 70k btu's so figure it'll be enought to boil a 10 gallon batch without any problems.

The burners in the picture look very similar to the Bayou Classic KAB4's I have and will be mounting on my weldless stand (this weekend?!?). They'll run you about $80 on Amazon and put out 200,000+ BTUs. They'll heat 10 gal in no time flat Not sure how well they'll do running two off of one propane tank though. I will likely start by running them separately...

This caught my eye at Costco today and I thought instant brew stand. Adjustable shelves...single tier with storage shelves. With a little work burners and pumps could be easily attached.

got my shipment from McMasters today! Any one have any advice on tools to use for the job, having a hard time tracking down a "top cut saw". Looking to start this weekend if I can borrow or if not rent the tools this weekend.

A chop saw (miter saw) with an abrasive blade would probably work best. I got good results with an angle grinder with an abrasive metal cutting blade. But if you have the option, I would go with the chop saw.

That's exactly what I did, worked great.

I got my plate chiller in today, and have both of my burners now as well. Hoping to get more done on the stand this week. Just waiting on some fittings to come in for the BK/HLT/MLT.

As someone else mentioned, they are 30 bucks at Argi Supply.

They might have been referring to these at www.agrisupply.com
