Topics I've Started

Superautomatica bottle capper

31 October 2016 - 06:17 PM

Sharing the love / getting rid of stuff I'm not using. Somehow I've ended up with two of these bad boys they are the same except one has a bit of surface rust on the base so it's up for grabs! Nothing 5 minutes of work couldn't sort out. Still works perfect. Pickup Hurstbridge.

$10 and shes yours.

I'd also settle for $5 and a beer.


Marga Mill

30 October 2016 - 05:51 PM

The clean up continues. I have a marga mill to rehome as I upgraded to a mash master with fluted rollers (that's how I roll) I found the marga a bit slow. Does the job though so good for partials etc. 7 plus kgs of grain though was a bit of a stretch or maybe I didn't set it up right. I'll have to re-asssemble the base a bit as I had it mounted on a board. Comes with all the bits, hand crank, Drive shaft to go into a drill, all in good order. I'll try to get a pic together tomorrow if needed.

$30 would see me part with it. "Is he mad?" I hear you saying, well no, just too lazy for ebay and happy for it to find a new home with someone from here.


Stainless pots

30 October 2016 - 03:27 PM

Two pots prefer to sell to one person. Both are cheap and thin stainless as often seen on ebay. I used one of a set of three for many biab batches and it's now a sparge water heater of sorts for me. Worked fine no dramas. I had plans of turning these two into a DIY BM or something that never eventuated as I purchased one. Quality comparable to Big W stockpot.

Big pot approx 46 litres 400mm deep 390 diam.

Both pots never used just a bit dusty and possibly a couple of scratches and dings from sitting in my shed both have lids. Nothing structurally wrong with them at all.

$50 for the pair. Yep that's right $50. Get in quick! Pick up only from Hurstbridge.

By full I don't mean the bottles. They are empty. The crates are full of empty bottles...

159 year old pub illegally demolished Melb.

18 October 2016 - 07:26 PM

Arsehole developers in Melbourne knocked over a 159 year old heritage listed pub on the week end. No doubt it will end up being apartments and the developers are already probably laughing at the max fine of $200,000. The fact they purchased a heritage listed site makes them custodians that should care for the history of buildings like this, not vandals that think the rules don't apply to them for some reason. I don't know if it will help but please sign this petition a group of Melb Uni. students are running. Buildings like this shouldn't be lost. So maybe if enough people show how upset they are it will convince a politician or two they should care.

By the way, this was never my local, I don't even think I've drank there, but I am still seething that someone's local, and a very old one full of character and history has been lost.
