I'm not using burners, my system is electric. I think what your seeing in my diagram are my Chugger pumps.

To JonesSoda: Can you provide a little more detail to just how you mounted your burner? Nice looking stand you've got there!

We used some 12 ga. copper ground wire and just wound it around a few times and pulled it all tight. It is kind of an odd rig but it will hold it pretty well. I will be looking for a more "permanent" solution as always.

Where did you order the stainless from? I've seen huge swings in pricing. Are all the brackets/screws stainless as well?

On my image album linked in my big post I have a breakdown of the parts, their origin and cost.

I would like to find a 90-degree curved channel for a hoist/trolley system. From my searches, this is not an accessory offered. WHY!? I can imagine a track on the ceiling to hoist/transfer my carboys from here to there with no lifting. A 45 and 90 section would make it easy. Maybe someone out there can bend them??? Let me know if so....

Yes - I saw that, but the list says galvanized. I was interested in SS.

I am sure you can find some straight out of the box SS at an electrical supply house. All I had available locally was the galv. SS. I know it tacked on a few bucks but I expect this beast to last us quite some time. I tried to special order SS from Lowes but they do not carry the 1 5/8" x 1 5/8" square nationally and in fact it was a nightmare to get to the point where they realized they don't. Try your local supply place or if you are lucky maybe a you are by a Grainger or something close to it.
