Saw this if anyone is interested in a 40 litre.
Definitely. Would be so much easier to drain the bag. It'd be good if you could pull out the colandar and have it sitting on top of the pot draining while you're raising the temp to boiling. You could even put a smaller pot in (maybe use a 19L big w one) to squeeze the bag. Stick the 19L pot on top of the bag and then the bag is squeezed between the colander and pot.Thanks for the heads up GB, a 40L kettle and also a giant colander for less than $100. Looks brilliant from a couple of perspectives, anyone else see the potential there for lining that colander with some voile? B)
Was driving past my local Ray's a minute ago and I stopped to check these out. They are flimsy as all f**k, but what do you expect for $120? Yes, they weren't on sale! That's the one opposite bunnings on maroondah/whitehorse rd. Honestly, I could have quite easily bent the bottom with my hand. I just bought one of the Big W 19L ones for $20, and that's better quality. The colander idea is a good one, though.Definitely. Would be so much easier to drain the bag.

Do you know of any places that do this sort of thing in Vic? anyone else?Anyone looking for good SS gear should keep an eye on the auctions clearing out defunct restaurants. These are held on a regular basis here in Adelaide, but it pays to check out what you are buying. One of the auction houses here puts up a container load of crap that some one sources in China.
Watch out for the restaurant stuff.
I didn't get my pot from BCF, got it from another camping store (downunder camping or something); but can't imagine they'd vary by too much. 50L stainless crab pot for $85, no inner strainer thing. Had a very sturdy bag made up with long straps and I just hang it from the ceiling to drip. I did notice crabs pots at other camping stores were a bit flimsy, but this one was pretty sturdy. Stuck a tap in it so I don't have to try and carry a potential 45kg of hot wort around.$50 aint too bad... even if it is crap
Grays have some good stuff from time-to-time.Do you know of any places that do this sort of thing in Vic? anyone else?
It fits over 3 burners, one of them being a double burner for a wok, so there is a fair amount of heat under it. I tried it with just the biggest burner at first and it was painfully slow.ScottyDoesntKnow said:Is that 40l pot on a gas kitchen stove top? Jeezus, how long does that take to come to the boil?
What element do you go with?mosto said:I've got the exact same pot, served me very well for a number of years now. I've installed an element in mine. I've recently scored an old keg I'm going to convert to a keggle, but intend on re-assigning my crab pot as a HLT.
