I'm selling my home brewing gear. This made many tasty batches of beer but unfortunately I just don't have the time to brew any more. His is a perfect three-vessel system including a pump (no gravity feed needed!) for the amateur brewer.

All is sold as-is. It needs a clean but you should be ready to brew on the day you pick it up!
  • Esky mash tun with home made copper manifold, tap, mashmaster thermometer
  • Crown electric hot water run with sight glass and tap (tested today and boils water - all good!)
  • 50L "keggle" with lid, welded thread, and tap
  • Coopers plastic fermenter, with tap and air lock. Plastic getting a bit discoloured but was used approx a month ago for a FWK, no dramas.
  • Copper counter-flow wort chiller. Garden hose inlet/outlet one side, barbs on the other.
  • Home made immersion chiller. Note never tested since I made this 5+ years ago, might leak!
  • 240v wort transfer pump
  • Refractometer (condition / accuracy unknown)
  • 3-ring gas burner
  • large nylon hop bag for boiling hops & reducing sediment
  • 5L plastic jug
  • box of "stuff": spare mash master thermometer, silicone hoses, spoon, plumbing, bottle filler, who knows what else

Note no bottles or kegs included. All equipment as-is, take it all or leave it. Needs a light clean but all in working order.

I've been out of the brewing scene for a couple of years so I'm a little fuzzy on brewing details but happy to have a chat if you've got any questions.

I must admit I'm a little unsure what this is worth as I've been out of this circle for quite a while. I guess I'll start at around $500, but please feel free to make reasonable offers. Cash on pickup, Diamond Creek (NE Suburbs). Trying to sell as a whole kit rather than splitting.

Prefer not to split - but the urn is approx 30L if memory serves. Can measure it up tonight to confirm. With the urn as HLT and Esky as MT I regularly did 23L batches to fill a keg plus a couple longnecks.

How big is the esky?
I have a friend who's after a 100-120L esky MLT. (plus some of the other gear, like the burner)
It's a 30 (or 33? 36L?) Esky brand. Certainly not 100L though sorry.

For now it's GrumpyPaul's to take, otherwise I'll respond here. Would prefer not to split it if possible. Thanks for the interest guys.

Now to hide the evidence before the wife returns?

"That, no I've had that stuff for ages"

No problems - my son and his mate bought it - which means I no longer have to brew for them

They have to hide it from thier respective wives - i wasnt with them when they got home but I did say good luck explaining that this old esky, a keg with a hole cut in it, some twisted up copper pipe and assortment of bits and pieces was worth $450.

Sneak it straight around to the shed like a real brewer was my advice.
