Default My new SS single tier Brewers Equipment Stand Review

First off yes I read all the reviews, good and bad. I finally emailed Marcus at Brewers Equipment and conveyed to him my worries and I listened to what he had to say and he explained his side and he put my mind at ease. Plus as Marcus pointed out if you get it COD or pay with a credit card you really can't lose out since you CC will refund you. So after talking to Marcus I went for it.

I ordered the stand on the 18th it was one he had in stock the description on the site was: In stock special. Ready for immediate shipment.Stainless steel brew stand. These have the standard 4" burners, but are not built to accept banjo burners. Mounts included are 2 pumps mounts and 1 chiller mount.

Stand arrived on the 25th, price was as stated on the website $680 shipped.

Throughout the whole process Marcus emailed me back very promptly and answered all my questions.

So I tried to take as many pictures as possible when opening the box and unpacking everything. Everything came well packed, there was a little shipping damage on a couple of the corners where the legs slide in, not sure there is anyway to keep this from happening since we are talking about UPS here and if you drop 60+lbs of steel on one corner there will be issues. No big deal for me took me all of 2 mins to straighten back out the offending bends, I think even if I didn't straighten them the legs would have still slid in so it was more cosmetic than anything.

Just an amazing amount and quality of stand for the money! I looked at DIY and at having my local metal supply and welding shop fabricating a stand for me and they quoted me $1000 without any plumbing or burners, almost $400 for just the SS if I wanted to do DIY. So to say I am happy to have a nice SS single tier, with burners and plumbing for a tad under $700 shipped to my door is an understatement.

I work overnights so I came home at 7am knowing UPS was delivering the stand I slept on an air mattress downstairs so I would hear him knock. It was all I could do to get it unpacked and set up and take these pictures then stumble up to bed.

I am off this weekend and I will hook up a propane tank and fire her up and report back here. If you have any questions or if I failed to take a picture you wanted to see please don't hesitate to ask.

Wow, I didn't realize those prices included shipping. Not bad at all. Thanks for all the great pics.

(As an aside for all the people selling expensive brewing equipment online. THESE are the kinds of pictures you need on your site! Can't have too many of them! Customers shouldn't have to hunt around message boards to find detailed pics of your products!)

Thanks, akthor. I'm looking forward to hear how it works for you.

While I'm glad you got what you were looking for, anyone would be a fool to use this one positive review as an indication that he stopped ripping people off all of a sudden. People, make sure you do exhaustive searches for "brewer's equipment" before you put your money down.
