That "windscreen" you mentioned started out to be just a place for me to put a NAME on the rig - I even had wooden letters cut. But then I changed my mind, and now as you say, it's a place to hang stuff to dry, and will soon be where I hang the control panel, once its done. It is handy, that's for sure!

Indecision... may or may not be my problem... I'm not sure

Primary 1 - Empty
Primary 2 - Empty
Kegged: Empty
Planned: Maerzen, Maibock, and a Kellerbier/Zwickle
Coming Soon: An upgraded Blichmann 20-gallon, Kal-inspired, BCS-controlled, all-electric RIMS-based pico-brewery (by mid-Summer 2015, after the winter thaw, and the NHC, I swear!!)

My first attempt at a 3-tiered rig. Made 3 separate sections for better mobility. Still had to put wheels on the first and second tiers. It's heavy as hell. I really need to learn to weld.

Anyway, it's nothing fancy, but hopefully it can get the job done. Action shots to come soon!

Looks very nice! What is that black material you are using to protect the wood from heat?
