G'day all,

Relatively new to brewing and this site, this is an excellent resource, and I've already got heaps out of it, just a warning though to be careful of what you post re DIY electricals and "appliances" ie anything you plug in to a power point.


http://www.esv.vic.gov.au/LinkClick.aspx?f...04&mid=2135

I know that this is vic only but Energy safe victorias latest news letter p.18 outlines prosecutions for last year for various offences including 6 prosecutions for "supply equipment not approved" $2443 :eek:

It's a pretty big fine you could cop if you try to sell something be it on here or ebay that you have jerryed up your self.

By all means have a go but stay safe, and remember these are public forums and offering to carry out electrical work is enough to land you in hot water if you are unlicensed. Even if you are not asking for cash.

Cheers all

Bridges

Don't be silly... We all pay $100 for a certified electrician to come wire up our temp controllers... And pay for 12 month 'test and tag' services...

Just like we distill natural oils

My worry is that some poor bloke who's just trying to make some nice beer incriminates himself by saying the wrong thing on this site and becomes an easy target for a bloke sitting behind a desk at esv.

$2334 fine for selling a non approved appliance. Buys a lot of grain and hops and shiny stainless bits and pieces...

Thems were the days... One of the nicest bars I ever had a pot in was the boags brewery staff bar where before work after work or in any of their breaks they could smack down as many pots as they cared to. Lovely tassie timber everywhere and it hadn't been altered since the thirties when I visited early 2000's.
