Ok, so another good night of progress. I finished adding the angle pieces to support the two keggles and ground down the welds. Next step is to cut 4" strips out of the 16ga sheet metal in the pic and make some rings to mount our 10" burners. All in all making good headway and starting to see some light at the end of the tunnel. I also added a pic of someone checking in on me to be sure I kept on task... pretty cool if you ask me.

Looking good keep it going! I have very similar thread to yours, but I started a little earlier than you. You have lots of fun times ahead of you my friend, I'm hoping to brew on mine this month!

Ok, gave it another night of work. Going to take a break and brew some this weekend. Unless I feel like sweating like crazy, my next update won't be until sometime next week/weekend. As for tonight added the spacers to get me to 11" along with a heat shield. Only have one heat shield and will have to do over as the gauge I had is too flimsy. Will drill and tap so I can mount the shield with some screws. I didn't want to make it permanent in case it needs to adjusted for max burner efficiency. Always open for suggestions and critics. Thanks!

Great weekend! Was able to brew up a Belgian Tripel Sat Morning and attended a great tasting/homebrew party in the afternoon.

FERMENTABLES
6.6 lb. Light LME
3 lb. Pilsen DME
1 lb. Light Candi Sugar
8 oz. Maltodextrin
SPECIALTY GRAINS
4 oz. Aromatic
HOPS
1.5 oz. Bittering UK Kent Goldings
1 oz. Aroma UK Kent Goldings

55 min boil in total


That excitement aside, a big thanks to loh777 and mfiure for supplying more parts for our brew stand. We now have 2 Banjo BG14 Burners and 2 all SS dip tubes + valves for the keggles. I also received and hooked up the mash tun SS screen and valve. Needing to still order 2 sight glass for the keggles. Hope I can get one or two days in this week to finish the mounts for the burners and do a semi final grind on the whole thing. Keep you posted.

I just tacked them on the bottom of my legs, knowing I would most likely change them in the future.
