Default Rent a brew stand?

Assuming you don't own a stand:

Would you rent a stand if they were available?
Rent one with a few friends and make a big batch to split?

We're talking unit batch size 5, 10, 20 and 50
Smallest would be a gravity (3 tier) and the rest would be single tier with the option to use digital controls. (Standard on the big boy)

Guess it depends on the price. My turkey fryer / cooler mash tun works for me. If it were 5 bucks to rent I probably would just to try it out. If it's 20 or 30 I would probably pass.

For the cost to build these plus the plumbing and vessels, I doubt they're going to be $5 for a 4-8 hour process.

Probably not. Just trying to give the guy an honest answer. He asked.

I could see renting it for a giant batch. I don't need a 50 gallon batch unless my brew club wants to fill a bourbon barrel or something similar (my club only have 4 members).

Great idea...but what about pick up and delivery? Mounted on a trailer perhaps?

I could see this being awesome for someone like me that is on the fence between a herms system and a rims system I could try both first

I would think you might get some action on the larger units for someone/group wanting to do a bigger than usual batch. For the people who could use the smaller units - already experienced - in most cases they would not have a need for a rental. For noobs the additional cost of a rental would probably make most pass on the idea. IMHO
