i have done about 6 AG brews but this is the 3rd system all new and improved with the help of the mag pump.

last setup was all via hand and buckets, this time its esky, manifolds pumps and big boilers :) all hopfully on a stand cant wait to get it working

G'day Ben,

Didnt realise you had allready crossed the thresh-hold.
Sounds like you are about the same stage as me.
Pots buckets and jugs!
On brew day I am busier than a "one armed bricklayer in Bagdad"
I have a pump, a wort chiller, two convered kegs and a rubbermaid mash tun and I am currently building my "structure" and looking forward to having it finished.

Cheers
