    I got this for free and have no idea what I am going to use it for. I just know it is about $1600 brand new. Have a squiz and tell me what you think I should use it for. I am thinking plain old esky.

    I'm with you. It looks impressive, and I want one, but I have no idea what to use it for!

    Put it on evil-bay, sell it and buy a conical fermenter with the proceeds.

    I'll give you $5 for it JJ? I may have a use for it if I can get it free of delivery charges?
    Think about it mate. You will be in front.

    I reckon a mashtun too. Does it hold water? If so, put a tap in the side and off you go. If it gets up to a boil then don't even need the tap, biab all the way!

    from wikipedia:
    A hydrocollator is a liquid heating device primarily used in physical therapy clinics to heat/store "hot packs" for therapeutic use

    Yea, it would be perfect for BIAB. It would also make an allright HLT if you could somehow sort out pumps etc.... Anyway I have it on Evilbay listed in the chiropractics area to try and see what I can get. You never know A

    [​IMG]

    picked up from Joe down the road, nice bloke ended up chatting for 20 mins over brewing techniques, he was moving these babies along to concentrate on 19l kegs so i was only to happy to oblige and take them of his hands for a very fair price . good to have a couple of medium sized kegs that fit nicely in the engel.

    They look larger, from the size of the posts. So, maybe not what I will be looking for.
