It's funny that you mention wife approval because after 3 years of brewing my wife has never showed any interest. After building this, she now wants to brew her own Irish Blonde this weekend so how could I say no

Hey! You copied my stand!

Except in the Winter; I use a rolling toolbox to hold the MT and keep the garage door closed.

I have been thinking about a similar design, thanks for the inspiration.

It looks like the temp probe is before the heating element in the flow of wort. Is this correct? Why did you design it this way? From what Iv been able to make the temp is more often taken on the output side if the RIMS tube.

Nice and simple, I like it. Have you noticed any issues from air getting trapped at the top in the T above the exit? It may cause a dry fire issue for that inch or so where the element isn't submerged.

I put the probe before the heating element because I think this would be a more accurate temp of the mash compared to temps after the heating element. If you put it after the element I think your actual mash temps would be off since the wort was just heated by the element.

I actually run my pump for a few minutes and tilt the heat tube to get any air out. After that I turn the heater on and am ready to go.

Here is my current ghetto three tier rig. Building electric system in basement currently or at least gathering parts as I can afford them. Brewing a Irish red tonight on it.

Here is my Ugly Brew Stand Junk! I wish I had seen the weldless strut build before buying the scaffold but it works. Time and money are in short supply while I finish grad school. I'm building the lower shelf out of Super Strut. I still need to mount the pump, burner, and power supply but I'm excited-I'm tired of killing my back lifting and pouring! I made the whirlpool and diptube and the spider is from Stainless Brewing.

That looks like one of those $99 scaffolds from Home Depot. I almost bought the same one to use as a brewstand. I was thinking multi-tasker and not just a brew stand.
