Does anyone have an idea on how much these are going to cost? They look pretty nice, http://www.blichmannengineering.com/TopTier.htm

:lol:

This looks like you could make it a two tier or make it like a 1550 or whatever. I like the concept.

John replied to me and said it would be a couple weeks before they are available and the price is listed.

I need to build/buy a stand. I haven't seriously consider a B3 sculpture based on the cost. Mostly because they have equipment already included that I don't really need (I already have coolers and kettles, etc...). I just need a stand. This looks like it'll accomodate that... I'll be checking out pricing when it's available. Hopefully it's not just a stand with a 4-figure price tag.

Find a welder and have them fabricate a stand for you. I found one who will make my stand (Brutus like) paint it with high temp enamel paint and supply the 2" square tubing for $675. Then hit ebay for the other parts you need. I just scored 2 new asco valves for $48 a piece on ebay. next up Love controllers

Since its from Blichmann it will be nice, but this is definitely something anyone could build (not the exact thing, but the principle). It may be modular and adjustable, but it you design you 3-tier system right so could yours. This is something I don't want from Blichman. Although I lust after the Boilmaker.

What bothers me about the blichmann tier thingy, is that one your gonna be jumping over gas hoses. Why wouldnt they just turn the burners around, and run the gas hose through loops welded to the frame. Still a cool little modular setup, but Im sure you can find that T slot metal to make your own.
