Default Ebay March Pump

My brewing budget this month is going towards a new fridge (wish it wasn't though ) Otherwise I'd probubly pick this up and not tell you about it

Anyway looks like a good price for someone interested LINKY

I think this has been listed before, but most were turned off by the fact that they're the 230V pumps. You'd just need to get a step up transformer and you'll be all set.

Did some googling too....the pump head might not work for brewing applications http://www.brewboard.com/index.php?showtopic=95227&st=0&p=1145443&#entry114 5443

I know you can order replacement heads that are food grade and high temp, but that might push the price a little to high to make it worth it.

I initially was looking around eBay but decided to just grit my teeth and pay the extra $50 or so for the "real" one AustinHomeBrew sells. It was worth it to me just for the peace of mind...

Yeah I think you've got the right idea John. I wish I didn't have to buy a new fridge so I could get a pump but....next month is looking good

I hear ya.

Just finished my keezer and going to have to wait a month or so before springing for a pump. Fortunately SWMBO is all on board getting a pump and building a brewing sculpture to save my aching back .
