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. :mug:

That's awesome! I really like this idea!

Having the winch in the corner, do you have to worry about weight or it being tippy?

Wow, this is really fantastic! What capacity is this system?

with the weight of the water and stand i doubt it....

Empty, sure, though it hangs over the pot so should be ok.

Build of the week!!
I love this.

As long as the majority of the weight is over the center then tipping should not be a problem. Hey fortydegnorth, thanks-now I have to go spend a bunch of money trying to build something like this! LOL, seriously, that is an awsome build!
