    Taller 50L stock pots?

    Does anyone have a lead on a 50L stockpot with taller than standard dimensions? Everything I've come across is 40x40cm. Ideal size would be 35x50cm for ~50L volume. I've been quoted $355 for a 35x50cm 316L 1.5mm SS cylinder with a base welded on by a local steelworker. No radius on the bottom...

    Question Regarding Stepped Starters...

    I am planning to brew 36 litres of Witbier at 1.054. Yeastcalc tells me that I need 360 billion cells for this batch. My Wyeast smackpack contains 100 billion cells, adjusted down to around 76 billion for viability. If I step this up, starting with a 1.5L starter (which would give me the...

    Attempting My First Decoction... Critique?

    Howdy y'all. I will be attempting my first decoction tomorrow. Now, before you reach for that reply button and tell me that "fully modified malts don't require step mashes", and that you can make perfectly good beers in any style with a single infusion - relax, I already know. I am giving it...

    Hops Rhizomes - Free/swap

    I am shifting out the last of my belongings from my old house in Balwyn, which includes some hops rhizomes. I have 2x Hallertau crowns, 1x Fuggles and 1x Tettnang.

    Fs - Brand New Keg King Co2 Regulator

    Hi all, I have a brand new Keg King CO2 regulator for sale. It came with my kegerator and is surplus to my needs - it is still in its original packaging and has never been used. It is the single-output 50psi model as seen on this page: http://www.kegking.com.au/gasbottlesandregulators.html...

    Grimpanda's 2-tier Eco Brewstand Build

    Hi everyone, I'm putting together a 2-tier brewstand - initially for anything up to a double batch in a keggle, but with the room for upscaling in the future. The design is nothing revolutionary, but rather influenced by the fact that I'm working by modifying existing materials rather than...

    Keg Setup Weirdness...

    I've finally made the jump to kegging but I'm currently getting some really weird results with my testing. Long story short is that I suspect the Keg King bottle (2.6kg) was empty when I bought it (it was supposedly full)... When opening up the bottle with no regulator attached there is no...

    Super Simple Electronic Thermostat

    Has anyone had any experience with this interesting bit of kit? I'm looking to use one to control a 25W mains-powered heater pad sitting under a fermenter in an unplugged fridge, for maintaining ale temperatures during winter. It's not clear from the description or photo whether I would need...
