Nice build! I must say that this build inspired me to build a single tier myself, and I used your cut list so I am building a clone. I have the stand built and painted and am now ready to get the burners. Where did you get the burners? I am looking at NB, 3 burners and a 30psi regulator/hose for around $160 which seems to be comparable to all that I have found.

Thank you. Those are the burners that I got, it seemed to be the best deal.
I've been remodeling my kitchen so finishing the brewstand got put off for a bit.

Nice, I just placed the orders for the burner and regulator kit. I am the opposite on the remodel, the brew stand is my distraction from a never ending 5 year whole house remodel.

Thought I would give you an update and show you my clone of your single tier. It's getting close, I just need to plumb up the burners. Eventually I will automate the MT and HLT but I want to get a few batches in manually first. Still need to get the pumps and finish up my keggles.

I aquired a single tier from a guy and it doesn't have these, actually alot of the threads I've looked at don't, and I was wondering how critical they are? I'm making mine automated soon and will be changing the gas plumbing to match yours...Love the 2" framing, unfortunately mine is 1 1/4 - 1 1/2 ish..
Great Thread


May need some gas line from OHG..

These were recommended by another member to help vent underneath the kegs and supposedly this helps with heating. I like them because they help hold the kegs with the screw heads being proud of the surface like that. Also they make it so the kegs won't scratch the paint from the frame.

Excellent job so far on your rig n2fooz! Been enjoying your progress and your posts so far.

Good luck on finishing the rest of it!

John

Depending on how your heat shields are designed, especially if they encircle completely around the burners and the exhaust gases have no where to go. The burners need to breathe and it can be trial and error sometimes with each stand and kettle/keggle configurations being different. You can see the difference if you get the blue flames with yellow tips without the keggle on the stand and then when you put the keggle in place the flames change color, or the flame size varies, or the flames go up the sides of the keggle.

You can then raise the keggle 1/2 inch or higher (again trial and error) and see if this corrects the problem. One guy on here uses bolts between the keggle and the stand to raise the keggles off the stand so the exhaust gases can disipate, and oxygen can mix and enter for proper combustion. Then the proper flame size and color can be achieved.

Once fine tuned this will give you better gas efficiency and you will be able to fine tune the gas/flame/heat relationship and achieve the most practical and useable btu's out of your burners, for your particular set up. So if you can't get the proper results with the keggle sitting on the stand try raising it up off the stand and see if this solves the problem. If this does it then you may want to permanently attach stand offs on you rig. But again each set up is different and some need stand offs and some rigs don't. Trial and error makes up a lot of what we do on these brew rigs to make them better!

Hope this helps a little,

John
