  • Hi, I did HVAC for 13years, now I'm in Nursing school. I have been brewing for 2years just got a kegel MLT and BK and they are so much better than the cooler and big stock pot. Most of my gear I try to find or make. But things like the plate chiller or filter and dip tube on the MLT are just easer to buy.

    I think it's a bit of a stretch to say Sanky are today's standard for home brewing. More home

    are kegging. ...

    Make sure to look at Sanky kegs. Corny kegs have lots of places and ways to leak. Sanky kegs
    are today's standard. You can buy them new for less than new corny kegs

    I'm not the safety police, but in stead of running a hot element, just run the extra 240v power

    I have CC pots, you get a lot for your money, A LOT! But it's still just a cheap pot. I've had
    mine for 3 years and love them.
