Are you selling or buying this? Either way it's about the price range I would sell it for, and a little more than I would pay. It's a close call. Definitely worth checking out. The reason being I know the work that was involved. If I had to do it all over again, would I pay $1050? Yeah probably.

And if I was the seller.... I wouldn't take anything less.

Nothing to smile about. Divorces suck almost as bad as crappy marriages. Sorry man. Hopefully you can find comfort in your new rig?

Yeah we where friends before we got together we are ending it civialy... We been split up for over a year I let her live here still because she lost her job in the middle of our split up and is saving to move to Alaska where some of her family lives its no biggie but I do half to say I love being in control of my own money.... I don't think I'll ever get married again... That's for sure.... And it's not because I'm shellfish I pay all the bills and have her on my health insurance so to me it feels like I'm helping out a friend and at least we are still that after all this.....

Here's why...
I have keggles already, so I don't need what someone else has made.
I have two pumps already, so having another isn't needed.
I have a large plate chiller (Duda Diesel, long 40 plate) so a CFC is of no value to me.
I have two burners already. When I get a stand, it will have three. One for each step. I like to direct fire the mash tun to get the strike water to temp, and maintain the mash temp (as needed).
I have plenty of 1/2" ID silicone tubing, as well as stainless fittings for all.

For me, the only part of any value would have been the stand. IF it had three burners. Since it doesn't, I wouldn't buy it period...

Don't be mad, you did ask if I would spend $1050 for that...
I'll be more specific.... If your where doing all grain out of 10gal round cooler boiling on a turkey fryer with a 10gal pot aluminium And doing the mash in a kitchen on a crappy electric stove with your canning pot.. Would you buy this to make sure u can do it in one spot outside...?
