Here's my three-tier gravity fed during yesterday's brew day (Black Sand Stout. . . mmmmmm)

the big shroud will go away when I can get an actual shroud.
And I'm still to build the gas manifold. . . otherwise it works like a charm!

I haven't been brewing for a long time, started at the end of June. The DIY nature of brewing drew me into it, so I set out to do something sorta unique with my first brew stand. I wanted temperature control and I wasn't so comfortable with the whole electric brewing thing, also I don't have the ability to add 220v to my garage so I decided to go the gas control route, I basically used the gas control for dummies thread for figuring out how to get the temperature I wanted. I didn't go off any spec other than that. Love it or hate it I really enjoyed building this thing, I may end up doing a single tier "traditional set up and continue to use this set up for extract experimenting and Brew in a bag. This setup isn't actually 100% complete yet, I have a pump that I have yet to add to the set up to recirculate my mash and/or give the the flexibility to sparge. I'm hoping to get some questions about this thing, and I don't mind criticism, There were smarter options and routes I could have taken but meh...

Well I guess mine's done enough to finally post. It's been a work in progress for over a year. I got it up and running a few months ago and have done 5 brews on it so far.

-Indoor all electric.
-One vessel, BIAB (Brew In A Bag).
-One pump for mash recirculation, etc.
-400 CFM fan.
-All stainless steel fittings and valves.
-Bottom drain keg brewing vessel.
-March pump.
-25' counterflow chiller.
-Pure O2 aeration.
-Water filter.

Here is my build. I finished it on 8/19/12 and home to brew on it on 8/26/12. I have the cover to install over the pumps and I will also make a wind guard from some al. flashing if needed.

Just got my single tier stand welded and the legs cut today. Still have a ways to go as I need to get a pump and my burners along with all the hardware for the kegs. Will take me a while but still wanted to post a pic. Nice having a dad that works in a machine shop. Got the steel for $100 and the guy welded it for $50 (I gave him an extra $25 since he cut the tops off the kegs too.

Did you make the counterflow chiller yourself or did you buy it? if you made it, how much it cost you in parts and do you have a part list?
