Does it count if I have a prefab unit? Here's a custom-built, flipped MoreBeer tippy dump. I used to have a small shed in my back yard where I brewed where the only way I could fit it in was if the mash tun / hot liquor tank stack was on the left.

It's still pimping, even if you didn't build it yourself.

BFD Brewhaus was designed to keep any flammable material outside and below the burner shield perimeter. I used 1" angle iron back to back to make a "T" platform to mount the burners. The wooden frame was given a light spray of polyurethane clear coat to inhibit water infiltration. After I built it and fired up the burners, I found that the burner shields do get pretty hot, but the wooden frame surfaces and the steel angle below the burners were barely warm to the touch. I think I could have gotten by with wood to support the burners.

I'm not a big fan of wood, unless it's my own and some hottie has her mouth all over it, but I must say this is a pretty cool build. I like how you isolated the burners from the wood with the steel rails. This should work pretty well.

Nice work BFD.

I'm a fan of this comment, and the build referenced within.

Thanks. Tried to stay with a material that I had the most experience with. Needless to say, I'm not a welder.

Irrenarzt: that's an awesome walk-in build that you have going...very cool to watch it coming together...fight the power!
