I notice some Woolies have these asparagus steamers in store for $19.95.

These would make an excellent pot for a HERMS coil, or perhaps a hopback as I'm going to make, they are a surprisingly nice stainless pot.

I just happen to have a stainless filter that fits this thing like a glove (you have one as well Pete), I'll remove the handle and make another lid and it's a hoprocket for under $30.00.

They come with a wire basket that would be good to place hops in with a grain bag type material.
I'll post pics of the finished hopback when I'm done.

Are you going to seal it or just regulate the flow to maintain the fluid level?

Just regulate the flow I think, depends what I come up with.

If anyone has luck finding one in Perth please let me know where. I've looked in about 6 as I travel by and no luck.

I only found one out of many that had them, can you buy online?

The first thing I saw in your photo was a half-nude woman.

It looks like a good find to me.

Not sure from the pics if that's a glass lid there as per most Big Dub pots but happy to be corrected?
Too lazy ATM to work out if this asparagus steamer will suit a Gryphon Brewing ss coil that needs1.7 litres minium volume?
If suitable but with a glass lid then it's going to be almost impossible to drill holes in it & so making/buying a new lid will destroy any savings from the original purchase.
Not being negative but just saying it as it is.

PS ---- those ss filters do not suit my system. Will return with thanks ASAP.

Glass lid yes, I'll find another stainless lid at a Vinnie's store. Or make one out of a piece of stainless, I'll need to do this as mine being a hopback will have a smaller size lid anyway. I enjoy making these type of things.

The steamer is 3lt.

Mine came from the Gympie Southside store, and they had heaps of them.

You can get glass and tile drill bits from any hardware store.
I'm not sure how they would go on a lid though, the glass may be toughened.

I have this piece of 100mm stainless tube which fits my herms coil perfectly.
Now I just need to get my procrastinating mate to weld a base on it.
If the size was a bit closer, it would be well worth the 20 bucks!

Cheers anyway :)IMAG0210.jpg

How did you bend your stainless coil mate? I have a 3m length I need to coil for my upgrade...
