It is sweet, just wish I could make use of it. I would think it would be a steal at $375 if you could utilize it and had the space for it.

I'm hoping someone can find a use for it. Otherwise I will be making some serious modifications to it to use as a mash tun

Thats what I was thinking. It would be pretty easy to fashion a false bottom due to the shape of the bottom.

I also thought it would be fun to do a 'group brew' in this thing. Everyone brings their kettle then you all mash in this tank then everyone leaves with wort in their fermentor.

Just a lot of things you could do with this. Heck, I could sell it on ebay for 1500 bucks, right mark?????????

There are distillers that would love to have this, as it's one of the only reasonable ways to cook/ gelatinize large amounts of grain like corn.

I'd pay that if I could get it here. No clue what I'd use it for, but I'd buy it just to have it.

Well, there are a couple web forums, problem is the people are all over the globe. Plus, many are understandably guarded. I know thats not much help, but I thought Id let you know of that market segment.

Hell, you probably know a couple and don't know it.
