    My Single Tier Brew Stand Build

    So this is not much of a “How To” article as much as a documentation of my single tier brew stand I am building. I have been doing extract batches for more years than I should have (5 years) and have slowly been working on going to all grain. I figure a brew stand would work great as a project...
