I know it has been a long while but I like your ladder idea. I have gone mostly mash tun for the last year now and my friend is doing BIAB on the same day so we are still lifting the bags. I like the ladder idea and will try it next week.
Greg, here’s a pic of my setup. you could easily swap a pulley system for the clamp if the bag is too heavy. I don’t have any trouble with a grain bill of 10 lbs or less. Much more and a second hand becomes necessary. I actually rigged a pulley system like this to fry a turkey-if I can find the pic I’ll post it too.
nothing more exiting than brewing a beer get all happy when brewing day arrive
