I’m making a single stand now (metal fab/welding practice) but planning a future 2 tier batch sparge stand. I’m not looking to get to expensive and with this stand I would have 1 burner, and a spot to slide/swap HLT & BrewKettle.
The top stand(converted cooler go here) would pivot to fold down and not stick out in the way when being stored. I didn’t label it but there would be a pivot point at the bottom of the angled support to allow that support to come down.
I didn’t finish the bottom with much detail, I was thinking a shelf. I don’t think I would need a pump with this setup, I should be able to do the pitcher and dump method for the water then everything else would be gravity.
With this I was hoping to upgrade in the future with a counterflow chiller and when I get tired of lifting some kind of lift/crane setup.
And thinking of it now, the pivot point idea could double as a spent grain dump if I mount the cooler.
What are your thoughts???
