Default My BIAB Portable Mini Single-tier

Like many home brewers, I started using extract kits and a turkey cooker. As I moved to BIAB it presents the inherent new problems of bag removal, squeezing, and such. At the same time I started doing BIAB I found a Camp Chef Exploere two-burner stove on clearance for $60 at my local farm and ranch store.

To use this stove For BIAB I wanted to be able to manipulate the grain bag without setting up under a ladder or tree to hoist it out. In between the burners is a piece of stamped metal with 3/8" threads welded in it. So, I took a piece of flat stock and drilled a hold in it and mounted it to the stove.

A piece of tubing was welded underneath the top framework of the stove to stiffen it up. Then I took a piece of tubing and welded it from the flat stock to the top of the frame.

I found a piece of rod that was almost exactly the same size as the tubing and a similar sized flat washer and welded it into the tubing arm so that the arm would pivot on top of the upright tubing.

The arm is built "hell for stout"

Mash time

This is a 16 lb. grain bill

Ready to go tailgatin',campin' or brewin'!

I like it! Second kettle is for a dunk sparge ?

Could double batch with two simultaneous brews as well.

I dunk sparge regularly and have boiled and mashed at the same time. I could have two of the eight gallon kettles going on the burners at the same time. The whole system works out wonderfully for me.
