I have just bought an aluminium jump step from Aldi.

£13.99 brilliant.

Are you going to be getting fit?
What will you use it for?

Correcting height. Before I go any further I will say this was no originally my idea but works brilliantly.

If you stand the BM on it, you get a good raised height for working and draining.
When you want to raise the malt tube you stand beside the BM (on the step).

Happy days.

I preferred the wider ones so you can stand beside it. 500mm wide is a bit tight (perhaps I have big feet :D)

I saw those ones but I was a bit afraid that the 300mm width would be a but short to properly sit the BM.

For US chaps, I recommend this step stool Harbor Freight Step.

I have also been looking at this table to actually hold the BM. Would put the height just about the right size Northern Tool Keter Folding Work Table.

I like the idea of having two heights to work with.
Higher up for doing stuff in the kettle, but then having it at my feet to haul the mash out.

Can't help but think the narrow ones might be disappointing.

That's why I was looking at the work bench. Would put BM at the right level to do all that you want. Sits at 75.57 cm high which would put the 20L BM with resting malt pipe at around 155.57 cm (little over 5 feet) high. Perfect to view, pull pipe, etc.

No worries. I get what you are doing with your step. I was just interjecting what I was going with instead. In the end we are on the same page. Finding a platform that helps us lift the pipe easier. :beer:
