Note: This is a new item and demand has been very high. Delivery could be 2-5 weeks after we receive your order. Please understand.

This stand is designed for the demanding homebrewer that wants the best at an introductory price of only $399! This industrial powder coated steel support stand has a 22 x 22" platform for your kettle to sit on. It is designed for Brew-Boss kettles ranging from 10 to 20 gallons. The platform is 12" from the floor, the perfect working height.

This custom designed stand also includes an integrated rotating hoist/boom support that allows you to use the optional lifting rope hoist we offer or upgrade to the optional electric winch mount that allows you to use the Harbor Freight style electric hoist. Of course you can supply your own lifting hoist as well. The innovative design allows you to remove your COFI filter, Brew-Basket, or Brew Bag easily and then rotate it away from the kettle to the side of the support and lower it into a waste can or plastic bin (neither included). The hoist arm is 96" high from the floor, so you will need to make certain you have adequate vertical space for this stand. It is possible to cut the vertical support for he boom shorter based on your needs, you just have to make certain you have enough lifting range to remove your COFI filer for your size kettle.

The cross member is proudly laser cut with the Brew-Boss logo and includes storage holes for your COFI input tube, COFI Lift Ring, and a Swirl-Boss! These items are not included and are shown to demonstrate where they go!

The stand includes an adjustable mounting plate for the Brew-Boss controller as well an adjustable swing arm mount for your tablet.

The Optional electric hoist mounting plate includes a custom bracket for the electric hoist, cable pulleys for the boom to route the cable through the boom, and all required fasteners as well.

This stand is heavy and does not qualify for free shipping! The stand ships in two boxes, each about 60 pounds.

Please note that the photos show a complete Brew-Boss Brewing System with our controller, tablet, lifting rope, etc. installed to show how the stand is used. This listing is only for the stand and does not include the actual brew system or lift rope shown.

Winning Beer Made on Brew Boss Pro 1BBL System

Carlisle brewer made it to final four in Des Moines Register's Beer Brackets

by Paige Godden

A Carlisle brewer made it into the final four of the Des Moines Register's 2018 Beer Brackets.

BackRoad Brewery's Sunny Daze, a lemon blonde ale, beat out 60 other breweries in the bracket challenge.

It was one of the smallest breweries nominated, and the smallest left in the final four, but Backroad's owner, Eric Moorman, said he believes his small-town friends helped propel him to near victory.

There are several places around Indianola you can give the beer a try, including The Zoo, The Local Vine and Hy-Vee Market Grille.

Moorman opened the BackRoad Brewery last year at 140 N. First St. in Carlisle. His brews are usually on tap at Back Alley Smokehouse in Carlisle, where beer-lovers can also buy a growler of BackRoad’s brews.

BackRoad is a nanobrewery, which means the beer is made in three barrels.

Each batch of beer equals about 35 gallons, and since the brewery operates on a smaller scale than most brewers it's easier to make sure the flavors are perfect.

The Marine Corps. veteran was able to open his shop with the help of Warren County Economic Development, which gave Moorman a $1,000 start-up grant through the Home Base Iowa program. The program aims to attract more veterans to the state.

Backroads was eliminated in a semi-final round at the Iowa Taproom March 23. You can vote on the two finalists, Bridge Road, a brown ale by Fenders Brewing, and a pilsner by West O Beer. Online voting closes Friday, March 28.

The Weldless 1.5" Tri-Clamp Bulkhead flange allows you to add a Triclamp (Triclover) port to any kettle with no welding or soldering. Just drill a 1-5/8" diameter hole and tighten the locknut. We recommend our 1-5/8" Hole Saw for installing this to your kettle.

This adapter is a perfect mate for the Brew-Boss heaters with the integrated L6-30P plugs and Tri-Clamp flanges! It also works with our Triclamp Pickup Tube Adapter.

The flange measures 2" like all other 1.5" TC ferrules, and the overall length is just under 1". The ID is 1-3/8 just like standard 1.5" weld ferrules. The short length of this ferrule makes it possible to use ripple style heating elements and not have the foldback make contact with the ferrule. These are extremely high quality pieces machined out of 304SS and polished to perfection.

The O-ring is included and gets captured in a groove so it can't squirt out.

Installation Notes:
  • Hole Size Required - 1-5/8" or 41mm. (Our 1-5/8" Hole Saw or a Greenlee Punch works best for this)
  • The o-ring contact is on the flange side of the fitting so make sure there are no burrs on that side of the hole.
  • The lock nut hex measures 2-1/16" or 52mm.
  • The front of the flange does not have flats for a wrench. The easiest way to hold the front of the flange for tightening is to clamp any other TC part on with the gasket and clamp (a blank cap works great). Once tight, you can insert a long rod or screw driver into the hole of the wingnut.
  • Works on kettles as small as 12" in diameter.
