Well, I assembled, pressure tested and mounted the gas manifold today. Now I just need to fabricate a couple heat shields. Then I can mount the burners and the pump which also arrived today. I am hoping to have the entire rig completed and tested in time to brew some pumpkin ale on 7/28. Her are a couple more pics, more will follow as the project progresses.

I like the use of perf angle iron for the body! It has some weight to it but nothing that one person can't haul. I'm thinking about taking mine in a slightly different direction for modularity and transportation. Moving every 2 years and only having a car with which to move things around locally makes that a necessity.

Any advice appreciated; have built my weldless stand (pic is partial complete - have it built to hold all 3 vessels now) and am trying to figure out how to mount the hurricane burners. The diameter of the burner (where the mount holes are) is smaller than the frame (therefore I can't just attach some kind of hanging strapping straight down from the frame - it has to 'step' or bend in somehow).

If that description makes any sense at all, and anyone else has run in to this on their weldless builds I would appreciate any tips!

Cheers

I hope you can see the cross brace and the drop down.

Perfect! Thanks DakotaRules and Sam! I think the angled supports will work for me - it will bring the drop downs closer to the diameter of the burner. Has anyone had any issues with the flat bar (the non L shaped pieces used for drop down to connect to burners) holding up under heat? I picked some up from HD and it is (obviously) quite a bit flimsier than the perforated angle. My burners are heavy buggers.

Talk about your drawn out and long term build.....I started amassing parts and pieces almost three years ago. I figured if I spent the money on the parts, with SWMBO pregnant with our first child, I would have to follow through with my dream of homebrewing even after the little guy arrived. Fast forward to today, he is almost 2 and a half and I've only managed a few extract brews. Just found out that number two is in the oven, so I am kicking the build back in to high gear! Hopefully I can get things up and running (while finishing the basement and addition on the house) before the new addition arrives.

Cheers to you all for your many informative posts and inspirational pictures!

Never had an issue with the flat bar (yes it is a tad lighter).

Congrats on the new addition! Good news... when they get older you can put them to work. My little guy was 4 in this pic (definitely wouldn't pass an OSHA inspection here). He's 6 now and is in charge of weighing out the grist bill and running the mill.

My 4 year old helps me now now and then, he also likes to help make my coffee in the morning. The first day he went to Day Care they introduced him to the class and his first words were "I like beer and coffee". It made for an interesting introduction to his new teachers.
