hey everyone - i am in the process of building a brew rig, and would appreciate any feedback during the build. Trying not to spend thousands on this thing, keeping most things DIY. I will update as i progress, thanks in advance!

so I just welded up this new frame, my plan is to have two burners up top for the boil kettle and HLT ( both keggles), and a 70 quart coleman extreme for the MLT below. One march 809 pump below all that, some wheels and eventually pilot lights and elcectric gas valves.

gotta say a big thank you to bargainfittings.com. I placed this order last week, and the thing was shipped out first thing in the morning. Cant say much for the great USPS, the package looked like Ace Ventura delivered it.

HDS comin through. We've got a package people!

Good luck with the rig though, looking forward to seeing it progress. I need to start a project like this sometime.

so the boss has had me working crazy overtime for the past two months. Needless to say, I have not put much time into the new rig. Anyways, here is a new pic. I am going to install the wood slats along the entire bottom also, to hold the two march pumps and propane tanks. The middle shelf will hold the 70Q coleman MLT.

Could you take a picture of the other side of your rig to show the burners and such?

Is it o.k. to cook in the garage like that with the door opened? Just curious. BTW, looks sweet.
