I know BierMuncher calls his gear 'ugly junk'. But I'm a big fan of making do with what you have when it comes to building things. Decided that I'm not much of a welder and I've been using a 20 gallon cast iron aquarium stand for over 2 years as a brew stand. So I've decided to upgrade a little. I really wanted a second burner so a friend had a 55 gallon stand and an old burner he wanted to give away, so..... For perspective the pot on the left is 8 gallon and the monster on the right is my 21 Gallon SS pot a friend made for me....

I have about 25 pounds of crap to scrape off my gear before I could show you real ghetto.

My brew stand would be considered way more ghetto than yours... 3-tier gravity fed (4 tier if you consider the fermenter it goes in)
