This what I did with some "spare" time over Christmas. This thread is not really a how-to, since that is not my forte. I'm simply showing off something I did.

Edit: THIS IS NOT MY GARAGE! I would also love this work-space at my disposal. My friend runs his family ranch, and this is the equipment shop. He helped me with this and my three-tier build. I am very grateful for his help, but fantasize about living in his garage somehow.

It's 60"w X 16"d X 22"h (plus casters).

2 - March pumps
1 - Digitally controlled RIMS system (using Brewer's Equipment tube)
1 - Plate chiller
All Stainless quick-disconnects
All Silicone tubing (who knows, I may hard-plumb it one of these days)

The completed base and top:







Uprights added to bottom:






Finished Frame With Burners added:







All "Peripherals" added, Wet run in action:

Sweet.

No offense but that last pic reminded me of Dr Giggles.

I thought for a second he was trying to bend that piece of metal with his mind... I REALLY want to know what happened 5 seconds after that picture was taken. Don't ruin my imaginative scenario, but I'm assuming he got all Matrix-like on us, bent the metal with his mind, and then flew away on a unicorn with kegs on his back and a sword in his hand.

By the way that look on your cat's face looks like it has learned how to weld by observing you. You might want to GTFO out soon because it's only a matter of time before it builds a giant robot cat.

Awesome creation, did it take you just one day to complete? What's going to be your first homebrew on that thing?

Yes great job on your stand. Would definitely like to have it as well as your garage. Looks like you have plenty of work space.

I wish that was my garage! My buddy runs a family ranch and that's their shop. My garage pales in comparison!

I have no idea what was going through my head at that moment. My friend is a photographer and likes to take pictures constantly while you're not paying attention. We laughed for a while when we saw that one!

I'm either doing a trippel or a wheat wine/berliner weiss parti-gyle next weekend.

Reminded me of Karl Childers from Sling Blade. Mmhmm.

Alright, then.

Anyway, very awesome build. I'm inspired to make one now! Time to start bugging my friends who actually have welding skills and equipment. I may have to make one with hinges that will allow the whole thing to fold up so I can still fit 2 cars in the garage.
