Will do. My keg of black IPA blew tonight, so I need to brew this weekend, but I'll find some time to work on it.

I got a little farther yesterday. I ran out of wire! Stopping by Home Depot today to grab some more. I put the keggles on to take a look!

I ran out of wire and had to brew. I'll weld again this afternoon.

Here's an update, I'll post more pictures soon. Picking up more welding wire and paint. I hope to finish the welding this weekend. I ordered the casters as well. I just need to get the temp controller and mount the pumps then.

WEIGHT TESTING??? Just throw the full keggles up there and light the fires! That's what I'm going to do and (SPLOOSH!) (dies)

That's actually a really good idea and one I probably should have thought of. Guess I got lucky.

Well it's twofold. My burners are in the mail so I'm waiting, and I figure if its gonna crack I'd rather it fall down with thre keggles full of cold water.

Drilling the holes for the pumps tonight. Burners should be here tomorrow. I'll attach them and then paint it this weekend. Hopefully I'll be brewing on it next weekend! More pics to follow!

Id add some rings at the base just to keep things safe.

But it looks real nice.

And Im a fan of the Cam and Groove fittings. Just replaced all my tri clovers with those. Soooo much quicker.
