My favorite handyperson company has some time for us in a few days and I'm thinking of asking them to install a winch or pulley for lifting the malt pipe out of my Mash & Boil. I can barely lift it myself when it's full of wet grain, even though the M&B is fairly low to the ground, and I worry that I'll lose my balance and fall. (I am short, and though I am fit in other ways I do not have good upper body strength.) I use my M&B just outside the garage under a pavilion -- great protection from the elements, plus light & power.
If you have some sort of simple lift assist I'd love to see pictures to show them.
