Here is a crappy pic of my brewery. I will try to take more pictures with my good camera and not my phone...
Would still like to polish the keggles...

Huaco, you used the original openings of the kegs as tri-clover drain fittings that run through the top of the table, yes? Trying to remember back when you were doing your build thread...

My girlfriend actually makes bags. Here's a link to the ad/discussion on our local club forum.

And a quick video of me draining the mash tun - no lifting of the bag required!

That is correct... It is a little tricky to remove the clamps, but that is the ONLY downside... Bottom draining these vessels is AWESOME! Some guys in my local club are catching on to the idea as well.

Aright, no one shoot me please, I did search and still couldn't find a solid answer...


What is the typical cost of having a single tier brew sculpture welded together? For materials and labor.

Hey Hollis
I lived in Greenville for about 3 years... well, Simpsonville actually.

Anyway, Cost could vary wildly. This all depends on what material you use, the complexity, etc. Even the same brew stand could vary price quite a bit depending on what shop you get to fabricate it. Best advice I could tell you is to ask around to your buddies... Who knows... you never know who will have a welder and experience.
To your question though, I can't tell you because as you see, I built my stand out of wood.

Upstate represent!

Thanks for that, I've been trying to find information to budget for the stand... I know of a good welding shop in the area, but haven't put together final plans as of yet...

I'm also debating whether or not to learn how to weld it together myself

There is no definite answer for that question. It depends on how much of the work you do yourself and how much the welder thinks he's worth. Come up with a design and start going to welding shops, you might find one that likes beer and will barter a bit.

Like MonsterMash says, it depends. In my case, the cost of labor to weld and materials (2" mild steel box tubing) was around $800. That does not include casters, burners, high temp. paint, gas plumbing, bolts, nuts or taking it back to have something added, i.e., another burner windscreen that I should have had them put on there in the first place but I never thought I would be direct firing my mashtun. For pictures and dimensions of what I had done, click my signature.
