Built this brew stand a little while back and am in the process of upgrading to go with a single tier setup.

Just kind of curious to get an idea of what its worth so i can list it on Craigslist. Its in good condition still and would come with the cooler/mashtun pictured

Are you selling it will all the plumbing, parts (burner, pot, pump) included? That would be the main reason I'd buy it....otherwise its a glorified work cart that I wouldn't spend more than $50-75 for.

If its the cart alone, you are probably better off keeping and re-purposing it.

Nope, all the plumbing and stuff would be getting transferred to the new stand. Obviously it would be trying to be sold as an actual brewing stand vs a work cart since its super compact for the size, doesnt require a ladder, has spots for two propane tanks along with locks for the mash tun.

I don't think you will get a premium for selling it as a brew-stand, plus you are limiting the number of eyeballs that would lay upon it from craigslist. I'd probably offer $40-50 for it, figuring I'd end up paying 50-60...that is what I figure I would spend in lumber, casters to build it myself. If the price was higher, I'd just build it myself.

Ask $100, take any offer over $20 would be my advice. If you have my lack of patience for knucklehead craigslist shoppers, list it as "free to good home".

Well there's no way I would let it go for $20. The cooler is worth more than that by itself.

And more I think about it, I'll likely sell it with the Blichmann burner and SQ-14 burner.

OK, so if I am following flow, you are going to sell the cart, mash tun/cooler and BOTH burners?

Cart $40
Cooler $30
Blichmann burner $70
Bayou SQ-14 $30

I would ask $150
