So someone that has lived in their house since 19dickety2 is forced to sell it, then move to a crap suburb away from friends and family because the market dictated their house they paid 3000 pounds for back in the day is now worth a squillion? Political suicide. One private residence shouldn't be counted in any means test for the pension. Why is it always pensioners and welfare recipients of any sort that are the first to get the finger pointed at them when belts need tightening? Why not our pollies. Like Joe "the age of entitlement is over" Hockey. I bet he feels entitled to all the perks he's currently enjoying. The prick double dipped for years whilst telling us how we have to do our bit. Why not the Rhineharts and Packers. I fucking hate that it's always the people at the bottom that are expected to suffer for those at the top.


In Topic: Fluted Mill looking for feedback

Yep brissybrew feel free to use my reviews too. They are just a rock solid feeling bit of kit too. Well designed great to use and feel like they will last forever! I've got the newer two fluted rollers model and my cordless drill drives it very easily.

Again if you've got the cash go for it you won't be disappointed.


In Topic: Has Robobrew overtaken Grainfather for product price point?

you're assuming retailers are paying ~$500 cost price for a grainfather?
I'm gonna go with a nope on that, based on the lack of discounting we see on it (from anyone)

Why would any retailer discount it? As far as I can see they are still selling well not that I am saying there is any collusion or anything going on just that whilst they are still selling well no one would be tempted to drop the price.

The perlick FC taps are brilliant and the only real issue I've had is the taps heating up in the hot weather, meaning the first 100mL of beer is foam until the taps cool down. I've solved this by keeping a cup of near freezing water in the freezer, and dipping the tap in the water prior to pouring a glass.

 

 

This is brilliant and an idea I will pinch. Cheers!

Hahaha, I was actually going to ask if Craig Lowndes was a mechanic, but thought better of it.

Good move because he is and did build his own cars and engines before racing with HRT...

 

Any hoo, I built my own system 1 vessel and before that used to BIAB and I was never real happy with my own 1 vessel which I wanted for space saving reasons, my wife actually set me straight after another batch that I wasn't happy with by asking if I'd try to build my own vacuum or drill if I needed one. Point taken, I went and purchased a wort production device. I know the build and tinkering is fun and a big part of the learning process but these great options just weren't around not that long ago. I don't begrudge anyone getting into brewing now being able to buy a great system at a decent price. Good luck to them.
