    +1 for the Blichman Burner. Although the burner is more expensive than others, it has a couple
    of things going for it.1) It's Stainless Steel. This thing will last for ever.2) The gap
    between the burn...

    The lister is probably asking what they spent. You could build it with all new equipment for
    what they are asking.

    How are you chilling? If you use an immersion chiller you can just add a whirlpool to it
    without the need for a new bulkhead.

    For 10 gallon batches I went with a 15 gallon SS pot with dip tube that picks up on the outer
    edge. This keeps most of the trub out of my pump. I spent the extra $ and got a 3 piece ball
    valve. Spend ...
