    Brewtools B40 Advice and reviews

    Not the OP but did my first beer on my B80 on the weekend. With a 20 min mash rest, 60 min mash, 60 min boil, a 30 min whirpool and chilling to fermenter. The brewday took my just shy of 5 hours which is fairly consistent with the same beer on my Grainfather.

    Where to buy decent nano brewery systems in aus?

    You should look at the B150 from brewtools. Newera Brewing are the stockist for them here. We used the smaller (but still huge) B80 a few weeks back and I am in love.

    Grand Deluxe 125 GD125

    Hey sorry to hijack. Can Kegking confirm if the new Super Deluxe has the same or lower noise levels as the Grand Deluxe. I am keen to get a 10-12 kegerator for the patio but concerned with the noise levels.

    Lhbs what grinds your gears?

    If you have some around you, get to homebrew club meetings and ask them. They will be your customers. I find the best LHBS owners attend club meetings and are part of club.

    All About Canning - Cannular Can Seamers and More...

    I might be keen on a bulk buy for cans as long as they are compatible with the kegland canner. 18 cents a can with lid is a good deal.

    Awesome thanks for the info. So to clarify, the helix would attach to the tap and I would have to use a second pump if I need to move the wort across to a FV.
