Any body have any suggestions on paint color or know what is a good primer to put on mild steel? Hoping to get this thing at least primed tomorrow and gas manifold done. More pics in the morning.

So we got a lot done today. Didn't get to paint but got the casters on, leveling feet, and mash tun support as well as pump manifold plate. Very happy with how it came out. Now I just need to figure how to mount burners and pumps.Click image for larger version

I have the 20 gallon set up from stout with the same options. You are going to love your stuff. So glad I went with them rather than the other competitors. It is a lot more heavy duty than I thought it would be.

KGB, this is good to hear. This is the first feedback someone has given me about stout tanks. I am super stoked for them to arrive in a couple weeks. How do you like the false bottom and bottom drain in the mash tun? Did you go electric or direct fire?

I really love their stuff. Extremely heavy duty. I wasn't sure about the false bottom at first. It didn't seem to lay flat, but I found I have to rotate it till I find a sweet spot where it sits flat. The bottom drain is awesome(no dead space) my first 10 gallon batch had 35 pounds of grain. I also did a very fine grind and absolutely no problems sparging. The whirlpool inlet and the domed bottom in the boil kettle are great additions as well. The kettles are taller than I thought they would be. I'm sure yours will be even taller. I would suggest making a lower stand if you haven't already picked out the hight. I went direct fire. Are you trying to go nano? Congratulations on the purchas/good luck with the build.

Thanks a lot for the advice. I purposely built the stand to be low. It stands at 16" tall plus the size of the kettle should be right around my neck. Def. gonna go nano at some point just not sure when. I'm going to do direct fire at first then switching over to all electric. How well does your Herms coil keep your mash temps? Sorry for the questions... Cheers
