Over the years I've used several different home brewing systems. Anything from a basic home made malt extract system to the all grain system I now use. I'm not trying to say that these are the best brewing systems out there, but my Synergy has never let me down. I've used dozens of recipes with it and the result has never been anything less than phenomenal.

I'm just surprised I haven't heard mention of these guys on here. From what I know some of the local Oregon breweries use these guys as their pilot system, such as the well respected Oakshire Brewery.

I actually hadn't heard of them until your post. I googled it and found Synergy Metalworking. The system they sell looks like just a basic stand and burner setup. Since you still have to convert the kegs, I think most people would probably rather build it themselves. It's not bad looking though. Were you able to buy it with kegs?

It actually came with the converted kegs. The system is rather basic but solid with all the fittings being welded, which I prefer. I could get some photos posted up here when I brew next, might be kind of cool.

i'd like to see your setup. this seems like a good starting point for those of us who may not have access to a welder.

Synergy has been discussed on these boards before. Some good reviews IIRC and from my memory they/he gave up on me, I guess I asked too many questions and they/he figured I would never pull the trigger. Synergy's loss as I went elsewhere.

I've tried a few times to email them for more info on their products and they never replied, so I wonder if they're even still in biz....

I e-mailed them maybe 1-2 weeks ago and got a response.

The dude who runs the company is pretty busy so if he doesn't respond I am sure I can fill you in on anything you need to know. I have brewed down with the guy several times and he's incredibly knowledgeable about what he's doing.

How much heat loss is there in the MLT? How much would he charge for a burner on the MLT?
