Yes I have contacted them, Australia is not on their postage list so will have to wait for the reply, I have found shops in the UK do not like to take off the VAT 

but other European countries will .

No stress they put back delivery of the 50l two weeks.

They recon that they are working on the water gauge.

I am hoping this means that the marks on the side resemble the actual amount.

Haha, I hope so the ones on the 30L I think are just for show as they are way off from my experience, not sure how they could get it so wrong so maybe I am reading something wrongly, maybe they've taken the dead space under the false bottom into account?

Hi Guys,

 

I sent Sophia who is a sales rep for Aust at Guten a link to this thread.

They sent 2 emails back:

 

 

Dear Ross,
Thank you for your kindly information.
 
Please kindly help me to post " Adjust the pump flow rate is very important" .
Slower flow rate of pump is better.
 
If element burn out, you can use some vinegar to clean it.

 

I read the final comment as use vinegar to remove the adhesive on a burned out element.

 

 

This machine is designed for immerse chiller.
If using counter flow chiller, the ingredient may block the pump.

 

Interesting because I think the GF uses a counter flow chiller.

I think the vinegar comment is probably more likely to mean you can clean any burn marks off the SS not disolve the element cement.

 

With regards to the pump, I had a lot of trub in my batch and I used the pump to get into fermentor as the bazooka was blocked, pump worked fine, when I finished I took the bottom off and looked at the pump to see if I needed to clean and drain any trub out but was no sign of any. BTW I assume if the pump does block you need to remove the clear tubing to drain it? I didn't see anything else that was obvious as a drain point, just looks like 10-12mm tubing held on with plastic ties.

Interesting rossco about the counterflow chiller being as they are both the same pump, also interesting Leyther is you have cable ties on your pump connections I have hose clamps on mine.

May be worthwhile rossco to send a link to Sophia about the Lauter Helix, they are keen to listen to any comments to improve their system, let her know that the bazooka is disappointing, even though using a hop sock I haven't had a problem but always aware that I may strike the bazooka when whirlpooling.

I have sent 2 emails now to different retailers of that Italian Helix and heard nothing back, either lazy bastards or not keen on sending to Australia, think it is probably the former.
