For now I will mash on top with my cooler...I can lift mash water pretty easily as its usually 5 gallons or so at most....sparge is another 4 or so. I do 6.5 gallon batches now so 9 gallons in the kettle is tough to lift onto a burner. And that jet burner is nice. But I will use the top burner for cooking outside. I have one burner on my gas grill but having 2 will make it more convenient. I'm setting up a sorta outside kitchen under my 2nd floor deck....so it'll be covered. May screen it in eventually.
Cool. I doubt I will get anything like that soon but it just seemed so well suited to brewing.
Working up quite a few brews in my head at the moment for fall beerfest season.
Brews that are on deck.
Pumpkin Pie Porter
Bourbon barrel aged robust porter
Tropical pale ale
Kegging the Pliny the elder clone soon. Finished at 1.010 so it should be nice and dry. 7.7%
