Hmm .. according to reviews it doesn't look like quality product. Couple review (sorry , auto-translation):
“Of the big cons are the hopper mounts for the sparging position. They are very flimsy. There are only 3 of them, one was shifted and miss a base. Plus all of them very flimsy in themselves and purely fixed by spot welding.
During first brewing one of the fasteners broke off, and I was forced to use some pieces of wood to finish sparge somehow. So my advice to you is, solder or weld all fasteners along the contour at once. I just soldered it with tin solder wire, and I also put the broken mount on the rivets.”
“The metal is very thin. It can be easily bent with a finger and when you open/close a faucet you should hold it by other hand otherwise boiler’s wall start bending The boiler cover does not fit exactly . You need to make an effort to make it sit in place because lid is circular but boiler is elliptical. Fortunately, the metal is thin, and you can make a circle from the ellipse with your hands. The grain bin is also elliptical instead of a circle. Temperature sensor located near hot bottom and reading shifted higher. “
I tried this with a Drone good price and advertising. Problems arose with ISO App USA., very helpful if you like to correspond with them every day after 3 Mo. They agreed to replace Drone. Shipped from N.J. USA and free shipping. Gave me China address to return at my cost. Over $85 Dollar. The point here is you are on your own!! I checked out all electric brewers and you should stay away from a costly item and be able to get help. Just sayin.! I am new to brewing did wine 30 yr. First time was grate with my Brewzilla . The China government pays postage for the products sent to other countries, you pay for return. Just an opinion from being burned!!
I am very happy with my foundry. To be honest most of these systems are ultimately Chinese, but I like that I get the support if needed. I also like that there are a lot of others using the same system. The walls are not the thickest, but they are also not so thin that they get dented easily. I have had no problems with the spigot. I have a few Anvil kettles that are built like tanks, and the foundry is not up to that level, which might be why some rag on its wall thickness. I doubt anything you buy from Alibaba will be any better in quality.
