Hi brew experts,

I am preparing to move across the country and will not be moving my brew kit with me; it was meticulously put together with love over 2 years of home brewing fun...but then I found out for medical reasons I can no longer drink beer...huge bummer.

Anyway, I've posted several photos, but a summary:

  • 10 Gal stainless steel brew kettle
  • Large mash tun with custom hardware (holds temp to within 1 degree
  • Hot water tun with custom hardware (holds temp to within 1 degree)
  • Extra orange cooler that I use for grain storage
  • Barley Crusher power-drill ready grain processer with drill
  • Burner with propane tank
  • Chef Alarm digital probe thermometer for mashing
  • Pro Needle pocket digital thermometer for quick temping
  • Spice grinder
  • Refractometer
  • Wort Cooler
  • Carboy
  • Ale Pale
  • Standard brew things (funnel, mash/boil stir stick, yeast beaker, etc. etc. etc.
I figure I spent around $700; I'm not looking to break even...but I'd like a few bucks. The equipment was probably only used for 10 batches.
Anyway, I'd love some feedback. Thanks!

Whatever someone is willing to pay. Otherwise you're stuck with it.

I'd probably ask about $400, but realize that value is in the kettles, the barley crusher and chillers- the rest is 'stuff' that may or may not have any value to others.

Hmm I cleaned out my garage today and have similar gear from my generation 1 kit. Chimed in because I'm interested in responses to your question OP. Sorry to hear about the health issues good luck with the move/

:off:Can always keep it and start making really amazing non-alcoholic beer...biermuncher has a sticky on how to do that
Yeah, try that out before leaving brewing behind completely. I'm really sorry hear about your health issues, I hope you get a handle on it and get well soon.
