I built this wooden brew stand a few weeks ago.

I made it out of 2x4's for the base and uprights and 2x6's for the top. I have the HLT and MT on 1/2 particle board and the burner on cement board. I don't need to heat water in the HLT because I have an on-demand water heater that puts out 175F water from a faucet in the garage.

The burner is a 32jet natural gas wok burner. I've capped half of them to reduce the amount of flame coming out from under the keggle during WOT.

I used aluminum flashing to protect the wood from burning. I've done a few test runs and so far no fires. I also cleaned up the look and tried to avoid cuts by putting metal duct tape on the flashing's sharp edges.

Since these pictures I've switched out the barb fittings for camlocks and installed two of the lightobject pumps.

Sadly I have not yet brewed with it. Right after I finished this I installed underground sprinkling and then had to travel out of town for work. Maybe in early September I'll get a chance.

I have conduit clips(?) which fasten them to the frame.

Thanks, the bolts come out at the joints for easy breakdown and stow away. Limited garage space made this a must. But I pretty pulled the inspiration directly from the TopTier. Now I plan to mount my water filter and away I go!

Ours is about 90% complete, just need to do some more bracing and add the casters to the bottom! Will post finished product tomorrow.

Looks nice and solid. Will it have wheels?

Yeah, put the wheels on yesterday and fastened down the 2nd level, might cut down the 2nd level a little kinda close to my sofit. Anyway stores my equipment well when not being used.

Very nice work, looks as though you have about 18" extra height...6" b/w the HLT and MLT, and 12" b/w the MLT and BK. Storage space is plus, but extra height while brewing can be a hassle...trade-offs I guess.

Looks good either way.

Just built mine today. Most of my inspiration came from harten74's rig in this thread. I still need to add casters.

I don't use a separate burner for a lauter tun, so I didn't feel the need to make the third tier permanently fixed. Plus, I was able to make it a little smaller for storage.

The angled braces for the third tier simply pull out from some dowels allowing the whole tier to collapse.
