    I couldn't even find them, you got a link at all?

    Anyway for me they'd have to be darned cheap compared to the one's available locally.
    Otherwise I'll have to stick to kegmenters.

    If they're sub $300 & pressurizable I'd maybe consider one

    I have never actually seen one so can't comment, forgotten all about them until someone had told me that Guten also had a conical fermenter and getting a sample.

    sp0rk, I doubt they will be pressurized, but knowing that they follow the threads on here one never knows.

    Everyone’s an adult and I’m sure they can make the decision as to do they fix it themselves or send it off to be assessed by KK.
    Some peeps just need to relax and let people make their own decisions in life.

    Might need someone with experience ordering overseas to enquire and maybe advertise an EOI for a bulk order?

    Brewed today, 23 litre Fullers London Pride clone, tried the lodging the malt pipe a little higher to get the full volume mash, handle holes blocked, worked a treat, as I have mentioned before don't go trying this with higher Plato beers.
    Braumeister handle came in handy for lifting the malt pipe.

    I have asked them about the 1 year warranty, unconditional, abuse of system withstanding.

    Where did you get the mesh thingamijigger (I think that's the technical term for it) at the top of the malt pipe? One of them would be great at the top of the malt pipe on my R3.

    fdsaadf is correct it is the bazooka which is supplied with the Guten, most who have got the helix as the filter put the bazooka on the top of the overflow pipe. I have silicone tube jammed up mine so only the top 18mm is the overflow.

    Thanks @wide eyed and legless. Are they available as a separate item for purchase anywhere?

    Pretty sure most HB stores should have something that would suit, even eBay.

    Looks like you use the top screen. Doesn't seem warranted with that set up.

    Yes I did use the top screen and it was a devil to get in, but you are right it doesn't need to be there, no where for any loose grain to go.

    Nice trick. I tried it last night while I brewed 40L of Motueka Summer Ale.

    Works pretty well. :cheers:

    Hope this is on topic enough.
    I've done and tasted 5 brews of my crappy APA in the Guten now plus a few others
    Each one seems the same to me, something I couldn't do with BIAB.
    One would be more bitter or less/more malt coming through etc.
    Apart from the bottom screen problem which is fixed by turning it dome up, I've had no major issues.
    I have had a pump block but it was caused by grain going down the overflow pipe.
    I now use the crappy bazooka supplied with the unit on top of the overflow.
    I have a lauter helix attached to the bottom tap.

    It works and works quite well.

    I'm more than happy with the purchase and even if it dies a little past warranty I think I'll have got my moneys worth.

    The repeatability is what I really like the most, but being able to dial in all the stuff you want to do and not have to worry so much about it is great too.

    Only thing I don't like now is that lid. It's going to get replaced with something more useful.

    Its the pipe from the pump that sucks. sick of taking it off and on to get the lid off and on.

    I think I will just get a male camlock with a barb on it and fit a length of silicone hose and use that instead. WIll just need to make sure the silicone hose will fit in the lid hole.
