Howdy RCOLE.....Love this set up and very similar to where I would like to go. Only problem is that I am not too good at eye balling things and was wondering if you had any measurements, plans, details you could share?

Nice looking Rig....and a triple brew day....wow!

You really should tailor it to your own equipment.

Height of your BK burner plus height of your BK minus the height of the valve on your MLT = minimum height of your 2nd tier.

Height of your 2nd tier plus the height of your MLT minus the height of your HLT burner minus the height of the valve on your HLT = minimum height of your 3rd tier.

don't forget to tailor it to your own height as well.. i made some measurements of what is a comfortable height for my single tier

Default What do you think about this?

http://www.amazon.com/King-Kooker-94...s=banjo+burner

Was searching the web for propane burners and came across this. I think it might work well for a three tier brewing rig. I'd put my SS HLT on top, put my round cooler MLT in the middle, toss the jet burner in the middle and add a floor burner for my SS boil kettle. Could easily add some plywood to the bottom for a shelf. Thoughts? I can build a 2x4 version with the materials I have now but this is metal and already done.

When I follow that link and scroll down a little there is a "Frequently bought together" section showing this item and a step drill. I suspect you are not the first homebrewer to notice this duel burner rig.

Agreed. The only additional advice I would give is to not skimp on the wood and hardware. With 25 or more gallons of scalding liquids and hot grains, you don't want to risk a collapse. I recommend 4x4s and 2x6s tied together with lag bolts. And, don't buy cheap, undersized wheels.

Good luck.

Very nice finish on the wood. And, the matching hood looks great.

Made mine yesterday. Still need to add some finishing touches. Also need a second burner and valves for the kettles.

Check the weight rating on the wheels, and make sure they lock.
