    Hi,

    We have recently started our online store to provide the home brewer with the equipment and materials needed to convert their pot into an automated electric brewery.

    Our aim is to reduce the time and effort required to source parts to build your own brewery at home. We have had temperature sensors custom made, electric heating elements tailored to suit Australian/New Zealand power standards and only source fittings with BSP threads.

    All orders over $200 will have the option of free shipping via Australia Post Parcel Post.

    We are still expanding our product line up and are open to suggestions to products we should stock. For example, we will be stocking different types of PID controllers shortly.

    Please feel free to contact me via the forum, on Facebook or directly on our website.

    Cheers,
    Joe Mills

    Good luck with your venture, do you have any thoughts on supplying control panels pumps taps etc?

    Thanks wide eyed and legless!

    We currently have a pump in stock with stainless steel head and 1/2" BSP fittings. Is this the type of pumps you are referring to, or something else?

    We have thought about control panels/boxes, but just not quite sure what people would be looking for such as number of pumps, elements and sensors to plug into the panel/box. However, something for single vessel setups should be possible to provide something universal for those that don't want to build a customized setup.

    When the PID controllers and Pi 3 boards arrive we are looking to have package deals with all the components required to build a control box, as well as providing the controllers separately.

    What taps are you referring to?

    Thanks again for the suggestions!

    If someone has bought the vessels to start a brewery build he will need taps to transfer, if he is building a 3 V system, much easier buying all the fittings from one source than trawling through eBay, Alibaba and Ali express. (Nice looking pump by the way). There are plenty of threads on here with brewery builds listing all the fittings they have used, probably better to google them though than trying to find them.

    Thanks for the clarification! I had a brain fade when reading your previous post and thought you we talking about taps for a keg setup.

    We currently have two types of valves available, single and 3 piece. If people are interested in the all in one valves with the hose barb on the end we can get those in as well.

    As you say, the intention of our website is to be a one stop shop once people have their vessel(s). Appreciate the suggestion of doing some thread surfing!

    We now have the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B in stock. This is great for using CraftBeerPi and can be paired with the control board that we also stock. We also have 2 types of PID controllers, XMT7100 and REX-C100.

    https://www.mashtobrew.com.au/temperature-control/controllers

    The REX-C100 we have is the version that is for solid state relay output.

    We have significantly increased our range of heating elements to now include a number of three phase straight and circle heating elements. The circle heating elements are very low watt density due to the total length of element that can fit within the pot. All of the three phase elements can also be run as single phase.

    Had a look at your website today, liking your elements, will be back once I’ve settled on my upgrade. Great work.

    Thanks for the feedback! They had been a little while in the making, so was great to see them arrive last week.

    Hi MTB, do you have any solution for mounting those 3-phase ring elements in a 2" tri clamp port?

    Thanks,

    Sorry @Meddo hadn't considered that to be honest. We can have custom fittings made, but have large minimum quantities required, so we have tried to keep our range as standard as possible.

    No worries, plenty of solutions for a 1" base but I can't find any for 1.5" bsp unfortunately.

    Not sure if a circle element would work with a try clamp port anyway? They need to be installed from inside the pot and the 1.5" thread length is only 12mm, so would struggle to reach an adapter thread on the other side of your 2" tri clamp port.

    One of the straight elements would be the best bet as they are inserted from outside the pot.

    They can, bit of a muck-around but they can be used in some of the common tri-clamp element guard kits - poke the element base through the port and then screw the guard on, then clamp back onto the port. Unfortunately all of those common ones are 1" BSP rather than 1.5" BSP.

    My project requires a ring or sickle element, straight ones are out thanks anyway.

    No worries @Meddo. Hopefully you find a solution for your project. We will keep an eye out for adapters that are possible for us to provide.
