I'm not 100% sure I'm ready to go all-grain yet, since I only have 2 extract batches under my belt, but was wondering if this set up would work.
I have a 60-quart crawfish pot with a strainer. When I used it for crawfish, I had a 4-way lug wrench (clean, never used for anything else) that fits over the pot, that I would set the strainer on to drain the crawfish.
I'm thinking I could line the strainer with a bag, and use the same set up to allow the grain to drain afterwards. The grain shouldn't be too much heavyer than 30-40 pounds of crawfish with taters, corn, mushrooms, etc.
The main issue I see is if the pot will make the beer taste like crawfish. Guess I could try boiling a couple of pots with water and Oxy-Clean to see if that would remove any signs of the crawfish.
The other issue is the way my water lines run under the patio, my outside water is probably 90-100 degrees in the summer, so I'm not sure what I could do to cool the wort quickly enough.
Anyone see why this wouldn't work?
