I use 2 10lb bags because they are cheap at my local convenience store but there is always 2-4 lbs left in the water. so 2 common 7lb bags should work. Unless your cold tap water is pretty warm.

A few pictures of my rig, not that flashy but she is a work horse. In the process of making another Kegel. I brew in my carriage house it over 100 years old post and beam, this summer I will working on one half of it to make a nice little brew aria this is a design build so it will take some time and many home brews.

Now that's what I call an adult erector set! Way to go on that one.

It is an automatic vent, not need but it makes purging air a bit easier.

I've been perusing (read drooling and/or shuddering) through this list for about a week trying to get my head around the either single or dual tier stand I want to build. This is my start, a Tower of Power with my custom maple stand. Obviously drawing on Blichmann's influence for design. Brewed with it already and REALLY dig the on-board cord storage and retractable folding table. Only wish I'd have known about butler hinges before I mortised in standard utility hinges. There are adjustable metal feet for leveling on the bottom, though with how much this thing weighs it's not really going anywhere.

I'd been planning on adding hooks to hand mash paddle, lids, Thermopen, etc., but may hold off now until my stand it built. Thanks for the inspiration(s) everyone!

Can you tell me what the overall dimensions of the top are? Oh and take some pics of how you mounted the burners?

I still have to plumb the gas and install the bottom shelves. Getting close to the trial run.

Cheers!
