The main frame of the stand is 1 1/2" mild steel square tubing. There are wheels on one side for mobility, but it is still heavy.
Right not there is high temp paint on the top have (flat paint) and standard rattle can on the bottom. I'm still trying to figure out what kind of finish to put on it but needed some protection for steel. The system has been working great and expect it to be around for a long time.
Need to finish:
Stainless wind screen. Hoping to laser cut a design on it at work.
Brackets to hold vertical lines to posts
Brackets on top of posts to hold paddle/brewery sign (3 Daughters Brewery)
Almost done with my fermentaion and serving cabinet. Also trying to find time to build 28 gallon fermentors using sanky kegs and huge stainless conicals.
Thanks again for all of those who have helped me build this system. This includes everyone who posts on home brewer forums such as this one. I found myself coming back to this forum often as I designed and engineered the system.
Notice flexible lines going into kettles?
Barley helping me with the build. That should be a new thread. How many home brewers name their dog after something that has to do with beer.
OK, another pic of Barley
The previous setup
The old control panel. valves on left are IN, valves on right are OUT. Can pull from any kettle and put into any kettle. Problem is after drinking a few beers you can forget to close/open the correct valves . . . .
The original all grain setup. The good ol' days.
