So, as some of you are aware, I am going through a divorce. . .one thing my friends often say to me, is "don't give up who you are," and "be aware of the rebound phenomenon."

Well. . . I think I'm rebounding ... and one thing I'm not doing is forgetting who I am! Enjoy the pics. . . This is a B3 2100 system with all options--20 gallon automated Mash temp, float controlled sparge with an automatic temp controlled HLT/HERMS. 3 pump system, all stainless fittings/sanitary fittings with all the bling a brewer could want. So, to hell with her petty divorce, and here's to the rebound!!

Cheers!

Old system on left (disconnected)--that along with the two 15 gallon fermenters, all of its associated chillers, pumps was what I had for sale--it is now sold. . .but the pic demonstrates size differences.

That is an AMAZING looking setup. If you don't mind me asking how much did that run you?

Well, ironically, she bought this system a couple months before she decided she was leaving me. I took delivery of it after papers had been filed. . . it sat in the garage for awhile. . .and then when she claimed it as a marital asset, I said "screw it," and I set it up. . . I'm waiting to brew a monster beer on it . . . I did the initial tests on all the systems today--thing works flawlessly. The temp controllers hold constant temps--its pretty awesome. The float switch on the sparge works like a dream as well.

it was about $6500 without the fermenter. My ex spent tax return money on it. I actually asked her not to pay the money for it, but she did anyway.

Please post contact information for Ex-SWMBO, I'd like to have her buy me a brew system and divorce me. Not sure if current SWMBO would approve.

Oooooh, that's an awesome set up. I'm impressed- it's really a thing of beauty. When you use it, it would be great if you could take lots of pictures for us!

I'm not too far way...Atkinson, exit 27, I-80......you can drop it off and I'll give you $1000.00 for it. Since she wants it as an asset give her $500.00 and it's a done 50/50 split deal...nothing the lawyers or her can do...just tell them you wanted to cash out all memories of her...

I'll sell it back to you for the same $1000.00 when the divorce of final... No strings attached...PROMISE...

I'm mostly an extract brewer so your equipment doesn't excite me...meaning, it looks nice, but I don't want to own it...
