My brew stand its a work in progress

Well here a few pics of my beast! It is a 2 burner gravity system. I have to get it all painted up yet but with working on my brew barn I just havent got to it yet. Let me know what y'all think. Also give me some ideas on a good color, I suck at picking lol.
In the shop:

In my brew barn. The ground is actually soil cement and hopefully will be much better than dirt.

And here is a video of why I call it the beast. It was the first time I fired it up.

Nice heavy duty looking brewstand.
Do your jets burn cleaner than that after they have heated up?

Yes they burn real clean after it warms up. I have made several with the same homemade jets for other things and they all work great, but even better after the pipe warms.

A mixture of soil and portland cement. In my case, I just tilled about 3 inches deep, added 3 94 # bags of portland, tilled in the portland then rough leveled it compacted and wet it down well. I put in an area of about 100 sq ft for about $30. It is not as strong as poured concrete, but it is much stronger, and moisture resistant than just plain old dirt. not to mention you can hose it off.They actually build roads, and drive ways out of it.
