A Spot for your lid

Unread postby Dicko » Thu Apr 10, 2014 6:22 am

After seeing the wire clips in Andys modification for the filter plate, I thought I better post my little mod for storing the lid while brewing.
I found that when I had to lift the lid for checking the mash there was never a good place in the brauhaus to put the lid down so I made this simple clip from stainless wire to have the lid supported on the side of the kettle

The wire is 316 grade mig wire but you could make a bracket from stainless steel flat bar or even a flat piece of aluminium as it doesn't touch the wort.
The worst thing that can happen if I die is that my wife will sell all my brewing equipment for what I told her I paid for it

Great idea, I'm always looking for a handy spot

I would strongly suggest the use of Stainless Steel for the clip as aluminium and S/S will cause galvanic corrosion when in contact with each other

An old post but a good one. I can't believe I didn't think of this myself, having bemoaned the lack of a lid hook on an "upgraded" Weber Kettle barbecue.

These might be good if you have a brew room, fasten to the wall with a screw.
