Reader Photo: Stainless Table as a DIY Brew Stand

brewrig

Thanks to HBF Reader Rob for the photo and project idea!  [8 Ways to Connect with HBF]

From Rob… “Here is a picture of my mobile brewery setup using the Trinity Stainless table. I made a few mods for stability, but it works better than I expected. First mod, I cut the table legs shorter and second mod is I purchased some heavy duty casters for stability so I could easily move it loaded up with my mash and sparge water. I used the casters that came with for a couple of brews, but loaded up it was unstable enough for me to decide to change them. I can get everything setup the night before in the garage, roll it out in the morning and brew outside. My setup is with 10 Gal kettles for 5 gal batches and it works awesome. It would be a bit tight with larger kettles and add more weight.”

I have the non-wheeled version of this table and it’s great.  I use it for my brew area work table.  SeeTRINITY EcoStorage NSF Stainless Steel Table, 48-Inch [Hands on Review]

Note that Rob’s DIY project involved modifying this table to make a brewing setup.  That is outside of what I would call a typical use for a table like this.  Always use caution when fire, heat, propane, boiling liquids are involved.

Tip: Using a Pedal Foot Switch for Easy Pump Operation

MLCS 9089 Billy Pedal Foot Switch, 2 Step ON/OFF(Continuous Running)

I use this on/off foot pedal foot switch for easy, hands free control of my March Pump while brewing.  I’ve used the same one since of March of 2011 and it works great.  I keep it at the base of my Blichmann TopTier, relatively close to where my pump sits.  One foot press turns the pump on or off.

I use my March pump for: recirculating my mash, transferring from mash tun to brew kettle, chilling using a recirculating immersion chiller and transferring to my fermenter.

Always be cautious when using your pump with hot liquids and read and follow manufacturers directions.
