Very nice work

BTW, you have inspired me, my pop has a shop and can help with the welding and I can't wait.

I like the idea of having long legs as well, once again good job- way to stick it to the man!

Actually, since the kegs are concave on the bottom, the flame spreads out all around. I hope it won't be a problem. If it is, I can hang them lower.

All right! Just come up with a good, solid design based on the materials you're using and the setup you want, and putting it together will be easier than you think. I actually enjoyed the welding. It kind of geeked me out since it was my first time. Hopefully your pop has 2 welding masks so you can watch. I think that would've helped me.

Yeah, that was the main reason I went with this design. I like how it really doesn't take up that much room. It should fit in my garage in front of the cars (once I move some other stuff).

Looks Great!

I haven't gone shopping yet for all the burners and gas lines for mine yet. Where did you get the flex gas lines from? I intended on buying my burners from this place:

One came with my turkey fryer. The others are 4' and I got them for $10 ea. locally. There were several places in town that sold them. The ones I got had the flare fittings on one end and 1/4" threads on the other. Some of the others would've required the flare adapter I couldn't find! Look around at the propane/gas places. They should be fairly easy to find. At one time I even think I saw them at Lowes or HD, but they were out when I went to put everything together.

I did my first brew on the stand today. Easiest brew day EVER! I love this thing.

Unfortunately, the day ended with 10 gal of Fat Tire being poured out (see here: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/showthre...796#post223796)

Sorry to hear it, man.

Guess you just have to stick to whole leaf and plug hops.

I used those burners and they work great - they get a boil going in no time.

I made a long two tiered design last year. It takes up a somewhat large footprint in my garage so this intrigues me. Couple questions for you:
1. does the bottom H pattern need to be that big for stability you think or can it be smaller?
2. Did you ever add something to hold pots/kegs more stable on the shelf like angle iron (I store mine on the stand as well)
3. Now that you've used it, do you think the levels be shorter to lower overall height (I've seen halfbarrel brewers measurements which shorten it to about 5'4").
4. You used 2" bc it was free. but since the pot supports are short, you think 1 1/2" square of 16 ga would suffice?
