I put 2 cinder blocks under mine and it was high enough to drain into my bucket or a carboy.

Get an engine hoist and a length of steel cable / chain... Attach whichever tethering medium you chose to the kettle handles, attach to engine hoist and crank away... That is what I had to do when I was in a cast and brewing...

I have just lifted the brew kettle up onto something taller (after cooling to pitching temps), but I think I'll try the cinder blocks next time.

Thanks for all the great ideas, guys. I think I'll get those leg extenders. It won't be enough, but it will help. The only table I really trust to hold this thing is our kitchen table which is kind of an antique and I wouldn't want to risk damaging trying to squeeze it into the garage. Digging is also a no-go as the only place I can use it is just inside my garage with the door open. I'll see if I can't get a few cinder blocks at Home Depot or something to raise the damn thing up on a temporary basis. I usually have to brew alone so trying to raise the kettle post-boil is a somewhat risky prospect.

EDIT: Actually, I just measured the height of the spigot on my boiling kettle when it's resting on my burner, and it's right about 15" off the ground. The height of the shoulder of my 6-gal carboy is 17", so really all I need is an additional 3-4" of height, and the extenders give me an additional foot!

If you go with the extensions, post some pics and let us know what you think of them. I've thought about getting them but just haven't pulled the trigger.

Aren't the extensions just a piece of pipe stuck over the leg? Seems you could buy and cut your own galvanized pipe for much less. It even says no screws in the description.

Well, here's a cheery update:

A charge should never be incurred until the item has been shipped, and the "delivery status" of a non-delivered item should never read "on time" when it has never been delivered at all, much less on the "expected delivery date". You can save your 5% discount for someone else, as it's now too late for me to purchase this product since you had me waiting a full week, and I'm never going to shop at your stores again. I should have trusted all the negative reviews, but I figured this was such a small, simple order. At least I learned my lesson.
