Looks good. Shiny ...I think if I hadn't just home to the effort of making a mash tun and buying a peco boiler...then I'd buy something like this..

that looks a decent bit of kit for that money the only thing missing is the cooling coil which is knock upable for 25 quids,is it wider than the ordinary ace boiler and grainfather?
Wonder if they sell direct for the 10% eBay discount? Anyone dealt with them one on one no eBay?

Thought I'd revive the thread

The machine that Keg Kingdom is testing looks identical to this and he has a couple of short videos on his Facebook page if anyone is interested?

Cheers. Tom
