What is the mecanno looking stuff I have seen in here? It looks like it is pre-rigged with holes for simple fabrication. Is this stuff cost effective/reliable? Are there any other examples of this stuff being used for brew rigs?
Moxie - The product I used on mine is called "Metal Lumber" by Republic Storage. My rig is very stable as-is but I will be adding some additional bracing for overkill. I am slightly concerned that with a full keggle and plenty of heat, some warping could occur. I will report back after the first full test. I think from a time perspective, this option is quite good compared to welding up a frame. It really comes down to wether you have the time, skill, equipment etc. to weld a frame.

Agreed. This newly hired assistant is not working out as planned. When I said "go check the boil kettle thermocouple and make sure it's secure", he simply said "BOON!", and proceeded tug the 'balloon' downward. He's been with me for a year but I had to let him go. Good help is hard to find these days.....

Here's my single tier stand. made out of adjustable shelving 24"x24"x60" which sits on top of a dolly. A no weld design for less than $70.00! Propane tanks are stored on sub shelving on the right.

Almost done with my wooden stand.



Just need to add a shelf for the propane tank. Went way over budget with the bolts, but will make it easier to move.
