    Ah okay.

    Generally if you click request invoice from seller you can write a note, that's what I did because I had about 10 items with $5 postage, just asked them to combine all postage costs so they amended the invoice for one postage cost ~$10.

    Ah ok, didnt see that option. I just gave them a call and they said come over, sent a work driver down there today and i had to place the order through ebay (couldnt get discount without). Paid the full amount and they refunded me the $85 delivery fee straight away

    How good are parcel lockers. Great for hiding beer related purchases from the other people in your lives :)

    I'd be interested to know if they've got any data on their DO levels...I wouldn't go near it if they didn't, it could be an oxidised mess waiting to happen

    Nah, but I usually trawl the freebies and if SWMBO would allow me a third brewing fridge, then I would've taken it myself!

    Not exactly eBay or Gumtree but Birko (Zip Heaters Au) have factory seconds 30L urns available. 1017030-CD double walled unit with a 2400W concealed element. I paid $152 delivered - would be a good way for someone on a budget to get into BIAB.

    The tap hole is 20mm, so the 1/2" ball valve fits nice and tight without any mods (use the thicker silicone gasket from the original tap). "trub loss" would be 1L (volume to the tap ID). I tested for rolling boil - thermostat allows this without any mods, so she's good to go :)

    Doing my first all AG batch tmrw, 5kg Red-X Amber Ale.
    :cheers:
