How much does a half-BBL Brew Magic system run for, brand-new? The only prices I saw on the site were around $5,500, but not sure if that was for a full half-BBL system or not. The Chill Wizard, selling it for $650 but you can buy it new for $829. They aren't exactly offering all of this gear at fire-sale prices.

EDIT: 31 gallons per BBL. Sorry.... an oil barrel is 42 gallons, beer barrel is 31.

It's not a 1/2 bbl pilot system - It's got 1/2bbl kegs for mash and boil, so there's no way you could boil 15.5 gallons in a batch on that thing... And even if you could, how much gravity can you get from a 15g mash tun rinsed with 15 gallons of water?

Edit: You beat me to it

Put some duct tape over the gauge - Or better yet - Replace the high pressure gauge with a plug - High pressure gauges are useless!

... and of course, when I think of what a "barrel" looks like, I'm thinking of a 55 gallon drum.

I know guys who boil pretty close to 15 gallons in a keggle (with Fermcap or just a VERY active spray bottle), but yeah... even doing that, just after natural losses to trub you're looking at 12 gallon batches at best (and nothing big). Looks like they tried to ramp up a homebrew operation instead of building a proper commercial setup.

they reposted the original ad again yesterday (verbatim), so they probably didn't get a lot of interest in those price points
