I built mine with some 8" long lag bolts. Just screwed them right into a $1 4" PVC collar, no nuts or washers needed. The whole thing cost me about $6.

How does this effect your stirring?

Do most of you stir during boil? Or just let it go?

Here's mine. This is a ring from a sink disposal I got at Lowes. I got the SS bolts and nuts at Fastenal. Total for all SS, about $15.
