Yeah the plan is to have it up and brewing by the end of the year mate
Nice build thread double. That rig is the proverbial ducks nuts, brave to attempt it but handy that others have and have succeeded.Doubleplugga said:Will do when I get home cocko. Until then I started a thread called, The electric brewery build begins. Have a squiz on there as it has the boiler makers posted but none of the other blichmann gear yet. I will be home in around a months time so will continue my build and thread then.
I've got a Robinox for my kettle (gas) and when (not if) I replace it I will be going for something with a much thinner base. Retains heat for far too long. Whirlpooling is a real PITA. 20 min before convection dies down.Cocko said:If going gas, IMO only, I would think that the Robinox range with the thicker/sandwich base would be a better option, again my opinion only.

Problem with that is you will pay for each item to be shipped to an address in oregan or similar before onforwarding for shipment to Australia, plus, well, potential fraud charges I would rather not deal with!Doubleplugga said:get the pots sent one at a time and you will avoid the taxes. Or, if the US supplier will do so, have them mark it as a gift, this will also help to avoid tax on anything over 1K, so I have been told!
Nice stuff.MashPaddler said:After doing the research, I went local. I ordered my 100L boiler with thermometer and 3 piece ball valve this week, with an added sight glass. Pretty good deal for the size. I picked up a basic hoist for under $100, so I can biab double batches until I can buy the HLT and mash tun. I may go blichmann for the mash tun, but otherwise I think the $ are better off going towards fittings, HERMS parts etc. I picked up an italian burner with a medium adjustable regulator from beerbelly too.
These guys have some great brew sculptures, although it will be single level and pumps for me.
Spiesy, I know you were after some feedback on the pot. Got to say, overall, really happy. There is a bit of a mark on the base, but otherwise it is a really solidly built pot and some great fittings, couldn't be happier. Big bugger.... Hooked up an electronic hoist so now all that remains is to test the weight limits of Ross's biab bags!Spiesy said:Nice stuff.
