Making the switch to induction, and have to get rid of my Blichmann Boilermaker. Also have a new-in-box Darkstar Burner, 1 year old Banjo Burner, and brand new brix/SG refractometer. Most of this is rather heavy so I would refer local pick up, but will consider shipping on the refractometer, or the others if you really want to pay shipping.

Blichmann Boilermaker $240
Darkstar Burner - $30
Banjo Burner - $55
Refractometer - $30

I also have a plastic body single tap tower that came with a kegerator - includes hoses and sanke connector. $25? I can provide a picture of that if you pm me - banjo burner is in the garage so I can take a picture of that as well if needed. WIllu

I work in Lombard, iL and live in Batavia, IL so pickup or meeting spot can be near those areas.

Just out of curiosity, why are you getting rid of the Blichmann Kettle. Have you found that it does not work well with induction?

Did some research on Blichmann and they are described by others as not the correct stainless steel for induction. I did test my induction cooker with it and it began to heat up, but my guess is that it is not as efficient as others. Just bought megapots, and heated 6 gal of 65 degree water to a boil in 33 minutes with my 3000 watt induction cooker

That sounds like a long time, but a very reasonable tradeoff for being able to brew inside and cut out the cost of using propane. Also really good for apartment dwellers.

I had 6 gallons of fairly cold water (65 deg) and I got it to a boil faster than I can with propane- still playing around with it and settings on the cooker. 3000 watts (plugs into 220/240v) seems to do the job

Is the refractometer the type with specific gravity built in or do you have to convert?
