BIAB brew stand with hoist and pump
 
3 Attachment(s)

I recently sold my Brutus and decided to go BIAB for a smaller footprint and easier brewing. I like to brew in the garage, driveway or patio so being able to move it around without worrying about a pulley system in the ceiling was a must. I decided to incorporate a small 600# boat winch to lift the steamer basket from the kettle to allow it to drain and to smash all the wort from the grain. I found a Little Giant pump and 23 tip natural gas burner to use with the 82 quart Bayou Classic steamer pot. I added a grill spark ignitor to the burner so I don't have to hunt the torch all the time. No testing yet but I'm hoping it lights well. Threw the stand together this past week and I love that it only takes up 2 sqaure feet of space and is low enough to easily work with. Made a little polished switch panel/ heat shield and shelf for the counterflow chiller as well. Now it's time to brew up a batch.

My friends and wife call my homebrew Jake's Juice. Maybe I should call this "Jakes Juice Stand!"

All plumbed and test fired. I went with natural gas this time. I need to install the fittings in the lid for recirculation but that's all. 23 tip burner is intense!

just wanted to show where I am at with my build of this, I wanted to try and build this stand with as little welding as possible, mainly because I dig the old school look of nuts and bolts.


it started out as a shop table

















after a little cutting and drilling, this is where I'm at today. a friend of mine is putting finishing touches on the hoist, and the burner is on the way.
