I like the look of those tubs, BUT loads of people are having trouble with the taps, sure Coopers replace them if you contact them, but they are non standard taps and cant be easily and quickly replaced on the day if you run into trouble.
For me, Im sticking with the older FV's for convenience and will spend that $50 -$80 on months worth of brewing ingredients.
I was back in the southport kmart and is a clearance sale - looks like the last DIY kit there for sale.. I wonder if kmarts around the
gold coast getting rid of homebrew. I know some coles stores dont stock HB stock anymore here in GC.
I remember hearing Coles were gonna stop stocking Coopers products a while ago, but last time I was at Coles, not only did they have Coopers tins, but they had their own branded goo tins as well! No, I wasn't silly enough to try one.
But yeah, I got a new DIY kit at Kmart the other day, and when I tried to put it on layby, they told me it was a clearance item, and they were getting rid of the stock. Seems strange, coz my local Kmart (Maroochydore) always has a good range of supplies.
