Congrats on the new brewer!

And I had such hopes to see how someone's wood structure would work out too, so I could get some ideas before I possibly attempt one in the spring. But I suspect any free time (hah!) you have between now and then will likely be spent catching up on sleep!

First child actually. I hate to disappoint but she's the most spectacular kid ever born.

I'm probably going to be upsetting the neighbors in the next couple of weeks since the only time I'm able to get anything done with the stand is at night. The cold garage is calling my name!

Congratulations on the baby! The next little HBT brewer is coming shortly as they started inducing my wife at 6AM. She's currently sleeping so I'm on the iPad. I spent the holiday break cleaning the garage and polishing my kegs to start on a wooden brew stand as well. I definitely subscribed so let us know how you find time to get out in the garage.

Cut the steel, notched out the 2x6's for the cross beams, drilled holes for all-thread for burner mounts and drilled holes in the angle iron that the burners will be mounted to. Next, I'm hoping to get the burners and pumps mounted. I'm also planning on putting a lip around the top that will cover the steel where it's notched into the wood. This should keep anyone (me) from accidently resting their hand where they could potentially get burned.

The beams...





The notches...



The angle iron for the burners and the hole drilled through the 2x6 for the all-thread...

Man... Do you realize what a WONDERFUL thing you have just introduced me to?!!! WOW! I used to manually go to all the different CL "city" sites within the radius I was willing to drive to. This is going to save me SO much time!

THANK YOU!

No prob on the SearchTempest thing. I'm surprised that not a lot of people have heard of it. I've pretty much stopped using eBay but it does do eBay searches for you too.

The temp probes I made from parts that I got from both bargainfittings.com and mcmaster carr. The probe itself I got from Auberins.com and this is the same one I purchased.
