Just finished up my wooden brew rig last night. The only thing it cost me was $35 for the HLT burner. I received the kegs and weldless bulkheads for Christmas. I was hoping to go with a single tier metal rig, but I couldn't beat the cost of my wood rig! Everything else was gathered from around the house and father in law's barn. Hopefully the 9 month old will want to help me brew tomorrow!

Hey jELD,
Looks good! Clean and straight forward. What kind of material do you have under the burners?

Thanks...worked very well today, despite the frozen hose for the wort chiller. Under the burners I have some 1/8" thick aluminum sheets with holes...found them laying around in a trash pile...yeah I'm that guy!

Great find! At least in this case you should be proud to be "That Guy"

Where are you guys finding the casters for your rigs at a decent price?

Looking to build one shortly and the prices I am finding are insane.
Thanks in advance!

An sq14 for $35? Good deal, where?

I'm still in the process of building mine so no pics yet but I found my casters at a local flea market. There is almost always one shop that sells bolts and widgets, look there. I got dual lock casters for 5 bucks each, would have been 60 on Amazon and those were smaller than the ones I got so probably even more if I found the same ones.

Amazon had them a few weeks ago for around $42 and I had some leftover "shop with points" from my credit card, putting it at $35 for me.
