So I decide that since I do not have the skills required to weld or the desire to, I am gonna build a 3 tier wooden brew stand for a gravity system. I am borrowing some of the design (lumber, hardware, etc.) from what I saw here - theelectricbrewery.com
Basically the design is gonna look something like this -
I am gonna use SP-10 Bayou burners, so the 3rd level is only gonna be about 6" higher than the second (since the burner itself is 13" and my MLT is a rectangular cooler and only about 14" tall) and there will be about 4-5" of horizontal spacing between the vertical wall for the third level and the MLT so that it doesn't melt.
I had two questions
1) Would putting something like ceramic tile along the tops and vertical drops (i.e. between the HLT level and the MLT) be signifcant heat resistance?
2) Since I am gonna use two burners, would it be more practical to just have two propane tanks, rather than switch out the hookups when I need to use the HLT burner as opposed to the BK burner? Building any kind of propane plumbing seems to be a little bit of daunting task and one with not a whole lot of room for any margin of error.
Once I get this built, I be sure to post the specs on materials and whatnot for anyone else interested in doing this.
Thanks for the help.
