    Thanks for that. We will follow up any problems and of course replace anything faulty. It can happen that in manufacture some problems arise but I assure you that we will track it down and take care of it.

    I haven't been on here much lately due to a new job. Has there been a write up of the 70L?

    Apologies for that but at a trade expo working on mobile beer trailers so time has been tight. Will have something soon. The brew with the unit went totally smooth and I think is about to get legged. Then for the best test.

    I asked how it went too, I don't think there was much in the way of calculations, could be someone other than a KK employee used it but I believe it will be fired up again within the next week or so.
    I want to know the volume it can turn out.

    Here is what I got from the guy who did the brew:

    I did a brew on the guten 70 two weeks ago whilst working the shop, so not a standard brew day.

    Did a 50ltr batch, started with warm water, got up to strike quickly, ran it max power, no dramas.

    Telescopic overflow pipe was great, easy to use and well sealed.

    3 steps on the malt pipe were great for getting the malt pipe out for the kettle.

    Came upto boil in reasonable time @ max power and maintained a rolling boil @2500 W.

    Boil hops in spider.

    Used whirlpool arm and immersion chiller to cool the wort, no filter on the pump, had no problems with it.

    Pumped the wort in the fermenters after the whirlpool, had a nice cone of trub at the end.

    Clean up was a breeze.

    And the beer tastes great.

    Also, the beer is currently on tap in the shop for samples. It's really good, so it won't last long.

    The only useful comments in there were that it has a telescopic overflow pipe and 3 steps on the malt pipe.
    Can you please provide some more info and pics on these and any other new features?

    I think what the Brewer was saying that it was a bit like what we are seeing on the Guten Facebook pages. Basically a bunch of people happily making their favourites without anything much going wrong. Apart from the things he mentioned like the new telescopic pipe etc the machine works like the well known 40 and 50 litre models. Let’s you reliably make good beer with little hassle. Maybe if you could make it to our next brew day you could check it out.

    When you do one in Brisbane I'll do my best to get there.

    So are there any other new features except the telescopic overflow pipe and stepped malt pipe?
    Is it possible to get more info on the above two items as well?

    HI @Keg King
    I just purchased a Fermentasaurus snub, cant wait to use it.
    Question, are these marks / discolourations normal, and will they have any effect on the quality of my ferment or pose any issue with the integrity of the vessel under pressure?
    also I didn't receive any owners manual so I'm not sure what the "approved list of chemicals" is that I can expose it to.
    Cheers, Looking forward to your reply.

    So these new fermenters on FB look great. How are you going to release the first round? First come first serve, or some sort of pre-order list?

    You can send me an email (wil@mchaustralia.com.au) and I will send you manual either as PDF or by post. The marks should not be an issue but if you have concerns we can arrange a new tank for you.

    That is a fair question. We might do a pre-sale with some incentive for those who are keen to go early.

    Maybe one from each state gets a Fermetasaurus 3 at cost to write a review, or a prize for the next giveaway.
