I'm not sure about on a brat, but you can check those spots

Sounds like icing in the ventury because the heat riser is not connected or the valve on the air filter is in summer position.
As soon as the engine stops there is no longer air flow thrue the ventury, the icing melts so you can start and drive normal.

or possibly a stuck carby float and your bangin around on stuff under the hood may have loosened it
and last but not least maybe a weak fuel pump
notice any odd smells ? like to much gas or anything?

If it happens again, note the air temp / dewpoint; the closer together they are the better chance of carb ice. As you lose power put it in neutral and let it coast as it idles, you want as little air moving thru the carb as possible as the engine heat warms the carb throat.
If the heat riser is missing replace it.
Won't hurt anything but your prode ... unless you're flying over that pass and have to land your new glider on the interstate between the semis!
