Here is mine from the other day with Rochefort 10 clone boiling away....

The burner goes right at the end of the rig, turkey fryer. $10 in wood, turned brew day into a much more enjoyable and easier affair.

Single Tier HERMS that I finished last summer. Makes life so much easier and after spending that much time/money I make sure it gets plenty of use. There is no way I could have done it without this site.

I like this a lot. The tile top is what I've been thinking about using for clean ability and heat shielding. It also makes it look nice for not a lot of money. I also think itís great the way the kegs store in the shaped racks below. I would think the lose hoses and bobbles and bits would store in the kegs. I would think a plastic cover over the whole rig would keep the dust and dirt out till brew day.

I think that I've gone through this entire thread about 4 times now. Mine seems totally lame! The joy of mine is how easy it collapses and how simple it is. Where mine falls short is how simple it is. The plastic horses were cheap and have 2x4 slots, which I used to create a the table top for. All of the wood was extra. This is a very beginner setup which I plan to replace in a few years ... I like what I see here!

Just used my new woody for the first time yesterday, its not quite done as I'm waiting to add the blichmann tower of power to automate the mash temp if it ever gets done. And have to wire the pumps to a more permanent solution as well.

Got a ton of ideas from this thread and finished mine a couple months ago.

I'm only doing 5 gallon batches now and I'm batch sparging, but I left room in my build to add a 2nd burner on the top left above the mash tun and enough space to fit a full keg or a much larger brew kettle on top of the right side burner.

My landlord had a few extra ceramic kitchen tiles in the garage that fit perfectly in the spots below my burner and between the burner and the vertical posts. I don't know if they are helping with heat or not, but I figure it didn't hurt. I was actually somewhat worried about the glass sliding door right behind the burner, but I don't know anything about heat conduction. I've brewed 2 batches and it hasn't seemed to be putting off that much heat.
