So finally got back my stand after powder coating, here it is:



Friend of mine did the coating, I just received my (3) 6" burners from agrisupply, manifold will be built tomorrow, FIRST ALL GRAIN brewing session scheduled for this saturday, Orfy's Hobgoblin II.

I still haven't received my pump but I'll go at it anyways, using my old aluminum boil kettle to transfer the liquids between containers, hopefully my plate chiller will work with gravity. Thanks to everyone who has posted here as this has been my main source for knowledge on doing this!

Stand looks terrific.

Plate chiller will work fine if you maximize the flow rate of your chilling water (and get it as cold as you can). Decrease the flow of wort through it.

Orfy's Hobgoblin II is great. I made a batch last year. Very very tasty. Good luck with your AG.

Thanks, you guys! hopefully the water will be cold enough; I'll do a test run with water, if not, i'll run the water through my copper chiller on ice first, that should do the trick!

Baja,

Enjoy your powder coat now; because, once you fire up your burners, set the kettles on the frame, it will be ruined. Trust me, the area around where your kettles touch the frame will bubble, melt, then rust. Just giving you heads up. Looks awesome though.

No worries, with that Apple decal on the truck we already know he cares more about form than function

I didn't mean to degrade his stand at all. I just hope he avoids making the mistake i made "testing before completed". My stand experienced the definition of "melt down"!
I fixed it with stainless, baffle inserts. In the last picture look at the middle burner. You will see some silver paint covering up my day of initial testing. All's good now.
