BANG!
« on: January 31, 2012, 05:21:57 PM »
That was the sound of me pulling the trigger on the all new E Q-Brewery.

Controllers: HERMS Package with 4-Wire EBC II $689.95
Controllers: (2) Temperature Controller - Digital Ranco - Wired $198.00
Hot Liquor Tank Options: Brew Kettle - Blichmann BoilerMaker (20 Gallon) $399.00
Hot Liquor Tank Options: Heat Exchanger for HLT $57.95
Hot Liquor Tank Options: Heating Element - 5500W Stainless Steel w/ Weldless kit $94.95
Hot Liquor Tank Options: Thermowell for Temperature Controllers $24.95
Hot Liquor Tank Options: Weldless Thermowell Kit $6.95
Mash Tun Options: Brew Kettle - Blichmann BoilerMaker (20 Gallon) $494.00
Mash Tun Options: Autosparge $49.99
Mash Tun Options: Thermowell for Temperature Controllers $24.95
Mash Tun Options: Weldless Thermowell Kit $6.95
Brew Kettle Options: Brew Kettle - Blichmann BoilerMaker (30 Gallon) $509.00
Brew Kettle Options: Heating Element - SS 5500W Installed w/ Weldless kit $94.95
Product Subtotal: $2,651.59
1 March Pump (809plhs) $139.95 $139.95
1 HopRocket (BE-HR) $119.95 $119.95
1 Hop Blocker (HOP) $59.95 $59.95

The HERMS Package includes the first March Pump, so the 2nd one is for the pumped sparge, instead of using gravity for half the work.
He is about to release a different controller that would replace the ranco controllers and build it all in to one, so I've asked him about swapping out the 2 controllers and EBC II for the new version.

Plan to pick up on Feb 20th.

Yup, Dave seems pretty good
They have a build your own brewery link on the page that works pretty well.

The difference to jump up from a 10 gallon system to a 20 gallon is pretty small, so if jumping in that deep, what the hell.  I'll cash out some OT instead of taking the time.

Talked to John about it last weekend. Apparently he's taking his wife's washer and dryer and moving them, and removing the shower on the main level for this operation ... and your wife is OK with this?

Our 31st Anniversary in a couple of days.
By now SWMBO knows what to expect.  I just may be needing to trade help building our garage this summer in exchange for kegs of wort!

I'm experiencing brewery envy!

So is the brewery from High Gravity?
