So as many of you who have dealt with marcus and Brewers Equipment know....I got SCREWED! But Im not here to complain about how TERRIBLE the service is, I just need some help. The stand was supposed to come with everything i needed and it didnt. I am missing the regulator that goes from the propane tank to the stand. I went to lows and purchased the propane regulator that goes to a grill but it doesn't seem to fit. It seems close but wont screw on. Could someone take a picture of how their stand is connected to propane so i can finally get brewing! It has been 3 months since I sent my order in and I havent been able to get ahold of marcus in a month. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Below is a picture of the pluming i need to attach to the propane tank.

A free bump for you and an observation. That looks like a standard black natural gas pipe thats been welded on. So you will need something to go in between. Easiest thing to do is take your reg to lowes, etc and get a piece of 1/2" black pipe from the fittings section and find a way to get there. Just somewhere to start if nobody else chimes in.

You will need a 1/2" FPT to 3/8" Flare (45 degree) fitting, assuming the regulator has a 3/8" flare end.

This is a male fitting:


They are typical on gas appliances such as your range, furnace and water heater.
Lowes:

I hope this helps.
One more thing... depending on the burners selected, the regulator you purchased may not be adequate.

BTW, my brewstands rock

Reason: Added information

Yes OneHoppyGuy is correct.

Then buy yourself one of these adjustable regulators.

I had issues with my regulator that came with the stand (too much gas), this one solved my problems.
