Not mine - although I wish it was - but is this a decent deal? Seems like a pretty decent price

Seems pretty good. I sure wish I had a place to put that kinda rig.

I don't have 5K to spend, nor do I have a place to put it, but those are problems that can be solved.

He needs to rotate the pump heads so the outlet is above the inlet.

It is a good deal. Wonder how well the therminator works for cooling 1 BBL.

Should work the same as it would any size. It's always cooling the same amount at one time.
On my 1BBL system I use a CFC and recirculate back into the kettle until I'm under 100* then pump to the fermenters.

That Therminator is a beast and i'm sure could handle 1bbl just fine. Just got one myself and used it for the first time this weekend...almost a little too efficient!

Many I wish I had $5000 right now...ugh. Something like this better be around when I'm ready for it!

I would have to commit to selling beer if I bought that. I know it sounds fun to make 31 gallons of beer but man, I would need to supply my whole zip code with beer if I made that much.

I'm not saying I wouldn't buy it if I was in the area though
