    I would be very interested to see it.

    Time for a New All-In-One Brewing System

    My replacement grainfather showed up today, pretty impressed with their customer service. Unibrau never did reply to my email which I was surprised about. I'm going to keep watching the used market and hold out since I have this working again :) Cheers!

    Tilt Hydrometer Push Notifications

    I think this would be neat also. I tend to really watch it sometimes and other times I get busy and completely forget I have something fermenting.

    This is the deal I've been waiting for. Only 10 hours away.....

    Time for a New All-In-One Brewing System

    I haven't bought anything yet. I received an email from Grainfather that they are replacing my G30 under warranty so I'm going to try and make do for a bit longer. I'll be curious what you think of that Unibräu and just keep reading reviews until I turn blue. If I were ordering today I'd order...

    Spike steam lid used on 65L Brewzilla?

    I found this on the brewzilla 65l user group on FB. "I just used the Spike lid on a brew this week. The 15 gal lid does not fit perfectly on the Brewzilla 65l. It only seats about 1/2 way. I communicated this to Spike and they had me run some tests with water to see if it would work anyway...

    Tilt Storage Rack

    I have 4 tilts and always worry I’m going to knock em over when I’m not using them. I’d pay for 1 of these and shipping. Shoot me a message and let me know if you want to do that.

    Does this affect your decision? I'm struggling to pull the trigger, if I'm going to spend that amount of money I just wish I knew it was hands down the best I could get. Now I'm wondering if I should just buy a brewzilla / anvil, I can buy 3 of them for 1 of these if they crap out on me. Not...

    Spike steam lid used on 65L Brewzilla?

    I swear I seen this somewhere but now I can’t find it. Would you mind measuring the lid that came with the brewzilla?

    I've struggled with picking a size, I want to be able to do 5/6 gallon batches mainly but also do an occasional double batch. That put me in the 20 gallon bracket, I may regret this but heck that's par. :-)

    Time for a New All-In-One Brewing System

    I seen a video of a guy using his chiller that came with the Unibrau as a steam condenser. I sent an email to Brau last night to get their official stance on that since I can't find any other info on how well that actually works.

    Time for a New All-In-One Brewing System

    I was reading back over the messages and seems we are looking for alot of the same things and I was wondering what you had landed on, what was the main factor(s) for you deciding on Unibrau? After a weekend of trying to find all I can on these I'm leaning toward Spike. Honestly it's down to...

    Repurpose Commercial Cooler with Window Unit?

    I see these nice looking commercial coolers with bad compressors for sale all the time. From what I can find they just aren't worth repairing, hence why they are always for sale. I've looked and looked but didn't turn up anything, I was curious if anyone has cut an opening for a small window...

    Time for a New All-In-One Brewing System

    These are the reasons I've removed it from my list. It's a neat unit with several things that I wish other units had but you can't have it all I reckon'.

    Time for a New All-In-One Brewing System

    I did give Brewtools a good look and my cart right now is 3266 for the B80, steam hat, condenser, and 3 valves set up. And I guess there will be an additional import fee? That's a good chunk of change for me, again I would pay that if I knew what I was getting was the hands-down superior...

    Several good units to choose from, if only you could test drive em all!

    Time for a New All-In-One Brewing System

    OK I'll more than likely go with the Solo, love the non-proprietary, and the quality is top-notch. Funny, I almost ordered the Solo cyber Monday but thought meh the Grainfather is still doing its job, very next brew it melted the controller. I have a couple of CF5 fermenters from Spike and...

    Time for a New All-In-One Brewing System

    I don't mind spending the money on a quality unit but I'm not looking to spend money for the sake of spending money. I think I've ruled out the G70, and it was the unit I had every intention of buying. The Brewtools unit is nice but with the complexity and price I would just buy the local 3V...

    Time for a New All-In-One Brewing System

    Thanks! I'm really having a hard time deciding between the spike solo and the Brewzilla. I'm leaning a little toward the Brewzilla and getting the Steam Lid from Spike, but I feel like maybe the spike will outlast my brewing days if I get it. It's kinda a big purchase for me so I'll overthink it.

    Time for a New All-In-One Brewing System

    My 3-year-old 120V Grainfather Connect finally melted the controller plug. I was already contemplating the Grainfather G70 but apparently, there are some issues that they seem unable to fix? I know I want to go 220V I love simplicity and the easier they are to clean the better 5.5 and 11 gallon...
