$1100 - Thornbury

Regretful sale, I have my first kid on the way and something's got to give... unfortunately for me it's going to be my homebrew set up. šŸ˜„

I'll be gruff just for a moment. As the sale hurts, and the price fair (at least I think it is!), the price isn't negotiable... So I'll ignore any questions about price. If it doesn't sell I'll lower the price in time. Also it's to be sold as the lot. I won't be breaking it apart.

This will suit anyone who'd like to try it all out. I've got the setups from brew in a bag, all the way through to all grain and kegging, and pretty much everything in between. You'll enjoy it for sure. Where I've been able to, I've bought quality and it pays off. I'll be happy to run you through any questions you have about the setup if you're keen on buying. If you're local and you want a hand I'll even come around and help you set it up!

PM me if you'd like to see anything not shown.

- Fridge with two taps, new keg connections and new lines (only just replaced when we got the news!). New keg disconnects are CMBecker non-return, damn good quality and of all the upgrades I've made to my system the best one I've made... only got to use them once!!
- 40L Guten
- Micromatic Premium Primary CO2 regulator - also new used once and damn good quality over the cheap stuff
- 3 corny kegs

- glass carboy
- pressure fermenter (with hoses to perform closed transfers)
- plastic fermenter
- spunding valve

- grain (wheat ~.5 bag, ale ~.25 bag and small amounts of random adjuncts)
- grain mill

- hops (about 500g each of Trident, Lotus, Astra, Chinook and Willamett) divided into vacuum sealed 100g bags which have been stored in the freezer

- magnetic stirrer and 3L flask
- water chems
- portable scale
- immersion wort chiller

- PET bottles and carb caps
- hydrometer
- immersion heater
- other hoses for water and wort transfer

There are probably a few other items I'll find and add to the mix when I do. I won't be charging extra for that. There is counterflow wort chiller somewhere, I'll throw that in when I find it.

my mate just pointed out that as I have about 5 batches worth of grain there is probably about $500 worth of beer to be brewed in there... bastard! But yeah, one to be considered when buying it too!

@charlie_b

sorry for your loss but i think your new play toy wil bring your a lifetime of joy


However Seeing though your in Vic this might be a bit of a wait for those looking into purchasing it . as i cant see you wanting to courier it tothe new home
and that being we in Vic are only allowed to go as far as 5km and no vistors to the home

you may want to stall this sale until lockdown is over, unless you have someone willing to pay for shipping

I stopped brewing a couple of years before the first kid came along but restarted not long after the second came, I'll say this, kids will drive you to drink and it's better if it's cheaper and good quality drink. Good luck!

I did the same, had a break for a few years then got back into.

[email protected] You will regret selling your gear as it will cost you more to replace, i'd keep the gear but offload the perishables.

Still for sale folks, found this to add to the lot as well. The time is now to finally get your mate into homebrewing!

Not to crap on your sale, but I have found that brewing with young kids isn't that bad as long as you make some small adjustments and get used to the idea that the kids come first. I have a 3 year old and a 1 year old, and out of my hobbies, brewing is the easiest.

I used to have a marine aquarium, but dropped that as it was too hard. Have a few busy weekends with the kids and the tank goes to a green mess. Fish die etc.

Still have historic cars/motorbikes, but an absolute pain to get the time. Kids are asleep, cant use power tools. Kids are awake, need to be able to give a hand at any moment, difficult when covered in grease.

Brewing, don't get a chance to brew for a month, doesn't matter, buy some beer. Mash lasts 3h instead of 1, doesn't matter. Don't get time to keg the beer in the fermenter, doesn't matter, just let it age another week. Miss your 20min hop addition and it goes in at 10, doesn't matter, beer still tastes good.

If space is the issue, then that is different. But in terms of timing I think its fine.

I've found this is definitely my experience as well.
I "downsized" to a 50L Guten just after my young bloke was born in early 2019 (Still have my 18 gal BIAB rig though)
The first 6 months was a bit rough, mostly because he had a bunch of health problems (had gastro at a few weeks old so became lactose intolerant and had silent reflux) but after that point he came good and I had a lot more time to start brewing again.
I'd brewed 4 cubes worth of beer before he was born anyway, which lasted me until well after he was 6 months old so that was irrelevant.

These days he's keen to help dad brew, so I let him play with little bits of hops and grain, I put some in mixing bowls and let him mix them round while I'm doing stuff that I need to concentrate on
He's learned he's not allowed to touch the kettle, I placed his hand on it while it was warming up (well below burning temp) and he hasn't gone near it since
Once I'm ramping up to boil he goes inside with mum or I put some cartoons on the TV to distract him long enough for me to get things set and I can walk away and set myself an alarm for the next hop addition etc

People had told me it was all too hard with kids, but that's really not my experience so far

Great bit of kit here for sale. To echo some other comments, don't give up just yet. You could keep the pressure fermenter,fridge and a keg or two and still keep on brewing fresh wort kits. Yes it will take a lot of the fun out of brewing, but will cut down on the time commitment and space required. If after a few months, year, whatever, it's still not in the cards the gear you held onto is still just as sellable as it is today.

Sorry to hear about that. When my two were born everything went on hold. Anything that involved "me time" of more than 30 minutes, so anything with tools, fishing rods, or brew kit.

But it doesn't last forever. The kids get more independent and can even be there to lend a hand on brew day. Not being useful mind you, just being busy and with you. I have a photograph of my youngest wearing a Harry Potter costume sprinkling hops into the kettle. If you wrap your kit in plastic, I'll bet you get back to it in a couple of years.

Haha, thanks guys. I'm over extended as it is. I'm not giving everything up! Just unfortunately decided to prioritise other things over brewing. Tough decision but something had give!

So yeah if you know anyone looking to get in put the hard word on them and help me move on! Looking at the gear is killing me
