I have 3 keggels (15.5 gal) and I error on safety.
1 gal on water = 8.32lbs
8.32x45gal=374.4lbs
I never boil them full but you should get the point.

Seems like you guys know more than me. I'll stick to the suggested sizes. Better safe than sorry, right?

Ok, so I ordered all the material from McMaster this morning. The original post states the following measurements:

54 inches long by 16-1/2 inches deep and 21 inches high

So should all my cuts be based on these? Meaning, cut as described, or cut a bit less and have the overlap of material stacked/butted make up some of the length? (specifically in the 16.5" cuts) Does that make sense? It does in my head, but who knows...

Looks good. You're going to want to add another brace in the back center.

Got my caster on this morning. Burners should be on by the end of the weekend. May need to wait for Santa for my pumps though. Not too shabby for about 2 hours of labor.

Have you tried using the Home Depot coolers for a MT yet? I was thinking of buying one but wanted to know how well it held temp.

It works great. Brewed the other night and it was just below freezing outside and I only lost one degree over an hour.
