My ever-changing rig has been modified again. This time I built a tippy dump for it. I really like it for batch sparging, and I also use it to dump the grains when doughing in which makes it easier to stir at the same time. Also having a 2nd burner is nice too. Of course it has a piezo igniter just like the main burner. Enjoy the pics...

I've always wanted a tippy dump, ever since I saw them on morebeer. I love the idea- you can add your grains easily! I stand on a stepstool with a bucket in one hand and a mash paddle in the other and I always wish there was a better way.

That's the first time I've seen a tippy dump HLT. All the others I have seen have been tippy dump mash tuns, to dump the spent grains that is. I'd be just a tiny bit concerned dumping all the hot water towards you though.

Kind of make me wonder WTF, but hey if you can build it (and use it safely), then why not...

That is pretty awesome. I mean, it's total overkill for 5-gallon batches, but what the hell -it's awesome!

Excellent craftsmanship! Nice hinges, and I like the powdercoat!

Really unique and clean setup. Great way to do gravity without climbing on ladders.
