Homebrewing Rig Details: This multi tier tippy dump style homebrew rig is probably the ideal multi tier home brewing stand in my opinion.  It is compact, taking up less horizontal space than single tier homebrewing stands and yet still stable enough to handle larger sized kettles with out you having to worry about boiling hot wort coming crashing down.  The Tippy-Dump homebrewing stand is named after it’s tipping  mash tun that allows you to place a garbage can under it so that you can easily clear your spent grains once your mash has completed.

This kettle placement allows excess heat rising from the hot liquor tank to warm the mash tun during the mash.  Some of the included and or available features on this homebrewing rig are:
  • Stainless Steel Brewing Rig Construction
