I have come to the realization that I enjoy building and modifying my brewery more then I enjoy using it. Went to AG after only 4 extract batches, propane to electric after 5 years AG, electric to full automated in the next 2 years
I would like to either use Brewtroller or BCS, but realize the largest expense is the motorized ball valves. Needing 10 for my current diagram that is roughly $530 after tax and shipping from OCSSYS (They only have 22 in stock).
Over the last month I've started talking with several makers direct from china. At ordering a qty of 20, I can get them down to roughly $43 a unit after all fees said and done.
I was curious if there was a large enough market/demand to either put together a group buy or offer a limited qty at $40-$45 depending on the qty ordered.
If you are seriously interested acquired for $40-$45 PM, if you just think it's a good or bad idea reply. OP, I PMed txBrew to see where I should locate this thread since GP forum is for ingredients only, but got no response.
