Gday All

I have been out of homebrew for the past 10 years or more, wish i never stopped brewing to be honest and getting back into it and goinfg all grain this time

anyway i am in a bit of a pickle here

I already have a 65l brewzilla on backorder paid for

I am in to minds wether to go a 65l digiboil just to boil water for sparging and maybe biab once in a blue moon

or go 35l brewzilla

I figure having both brewzillas in 65l and 35l i am leaving my options well open

as i can do full volume with out worrying of sparging in the 65l but if i only want a small batch i can still brew a small one and the 65 litre i can still boil water to to sparge

i also think the 35 litre will help with sparging in the 65l as i can use the pump to help


so 35litre brewzilla or 65l digi boil?

cheers in advnce my woman is going to kill me

I think a 35L will do you well, its plenty enough for sparge water, plus you when you do smaller batches its better. Thats what I use. I actually find myself doing single batches way more often then double and the 65L is a great HLT, holds plenty!
but if you do really big beers all the time you mind a 65L better..
Hey could I ask a favour when you order that you start the order through one my links,
bit.ly/KeglandMainPage
since the new website I dont think its working properly
Cheers and thanks

Thanks for that info, I agree with your thinking and have decided that going 35l brewzilla is the way to go

Hey i tell ya what, i felt like i was at work today as being a truck driver i usually head interstate.. travelling from bacchus marsh to springvale and back felt like for ever getting there and forever getting back but got me out of the house again.... worth the journey for shiny new toys ey

well got it home started to assemble it , put the 1/2 inch tap on, well the the tap started spinning didnt it and looked like it was going to leak . are you dumbass ex tasmanian ya left ya spare head in tassie, plumbers tap should do the trick. well i didnt have to much left of that stuff .. but thought hmmmm i think 2 1/2inch washers would do the trick and bueatiful tap secure//

hmmm time to put the ring thing on the flase bottom, wasnt happening for me my fat unco-ordinated fingers so the mrs was close by said you have no choice but ya gotta do this for me... that job done and she did a good job so i let her poor me a beer and pick my quaddie and thats where we started fighting she put me out of the 1st leg..

now the screen and overflow pipe well i am looking at the over flow pipe and the bottom screen said to me self this aint happen what am i suppose to do make my own thread.. then it bloody dawned on me was thinking like a south aussie that barracks for those port knuckle draggers , then suddenly i was knocked out cold cos i said yhis out loud it must have been a port knuckle dragger (she barracks for port for christ sake) are pull the overflow pipe out and bingo theres the threaded part. screwed it all in..

anyway time to do the glass lid or whatever like to call it. i look for it everywhere
next minute that knuckle dragger of a wife says you looking for this?

i said yes

she says to bad i need a replacement lid for a pot that size

i said do you need one with a huge hole in the middle

she said hmmm i think you can have this one its broken,

ok dear i can make use of that


now just turn on put some water in it to test for leaks and all good, i never floated away

just cleaning it with some pbw now and about to give it a good rinse again..

the sad part about this i have to go through this drama again when i get the 65l brewzilla

thats what carlton draught does to me mate. its not like real beer

thats the hard thing at the moment i am getting all my brew gear back after 10 years or so out of the game

i still have a few items to get before i can really get stuck into making tax free water

, oh i only brew to annoy the good lady as she really hates the blop blop blop from fermenters , but i find therapeutic and gets me to sleep, she is really annoyed beer gets to sleep in bed while she sleeps on the floor
