lol I don't know if I'd risk it. I don't know about you, but I don't want 7 gallons of boiling liquid spilling on my entire body.

Good luck. I would NOT do it that way.

I put my burner on cement blocks to raise it up a bit. Works perfect!

just be careful!

I've been LOOKING for a pony keg - it's the size I want for a mash tun.

Put it on your deck and use the gravity to draw it down your steps. Rather not see you get scarred up legs!

7.5 gallons doesn't seem big enough for a mash tun unless you're only doing 5 gallon batches and never want to make anything super big... I'd think you'd max out under 20 pounds of grain.

That is an idea, but I was planning on having my mash tun on a table on the deck and have that drain into the keggle which would be elevated to drain into my fermenter.

I will probably just buy some cinder blocks.

edit: Dave258, what kind of tubing is that on the valve of your keggle?
