I'm planning out a brewstand build and would like to know how people have felt about the dimensions or materials of their builds.
My plans so far include:
-Needs to be able to be disassembled (Not easily necessarily but can't be welded) and will probably be bolted together.
-Planning on using angle iron instead of square tubing. I think this will be sufficient support, yet make it lighter and more accessible for bolting.
-I won't immediately be putting any automation other than a pump, but I would like to leave the option open in the future
-The stand will hold keggles
-I have a hunch cutting angle iron is going to be a pain, so I would like to minimize the cuts.
Most of my inspiration is drawn from bobby_m's overbrook brewery
. I would try to clone it, but I couldn't find dimensions anywhere.
So given all that, what dimensions have you found to be the best? The original Brutus build is 28" tall. Has someone found this too tall, or short? To be economical with my cuts, would it be possible to get a 6' length of angle iron then cut it into a 48" and 24", making the stand just 24" tall or would that be too low?
Also, any advice or hindsight (even if entirely unrelated) about building your stand would be greatly appreciated.
