chuckger - love what you did with your stand. I've been looking at doing something similar & just ran across this thread. A couple of questions -

Any issue with stability using the 3in frame?
Do you know what the overall weight of it is?
Did you get wheels mounted?

I'm interested about the wheels too. I have the 3" mast and the legs, so I'm getting ready to assemble it and I would like to have wheels on it too, also where did you get the leveling feet?

This thread's about a year old... but I'm really interested in building this myself! I'd love some more detailed pics on the shelf mounting/support. It seems hard to imagine that curved sheet metal with a few bolts is holding up that weight. Is there something else in there?

So I now have my BrewTree set up with 4 burners, and 2 pumps. I can do 2 batches almost at the same time now with the 2 boiler tiers. As soon as the mash is done for the first batch I have the second batch doughed in usually before the first batch is boiling. With a 30 whirlpool for hop additions on the first batch last weekend I did 2 batches start to finish including cleanup in 6 hours. I was able to whirlpool the first batch for the extra 45 minutes while I was boiling the second batch, then crash them and one after another and transfer to fermenters. I love this stand it has shaved so much time of my brew day! I now have about $1200 wrapped up in the brewtree, and I will try to post a few pics of the newest system.
Too busy brewing to keep a log here....

I have a very similar system, but I am curious how you make this work without heating your mash tun to maintain heat? Or am I mistaken?

Can you give me the weight and dimensions on the blichman stand? I live in army barracks so I need something that is "light" as possible. Thanks
I like to try most things at least once. To make sure I did or didn't like it the first time, I try most things a second time. Beer, well, that needs a constant re-try to make sure I still like it.

Beer made me do it.

this link has the size of the stand. 72 " tall. 48" wide at widest part.

Weight is dependent on # of burners. But, it is heavy. I have 2 burners and a shelf and I can only guess it goes 150 - 200 pounds. Again, just a guess.

THere are wheels on 2 of the legs to tip and roll it, but you don't want to go far or over to many bumps.

Hope this is helpful at least a bit.
