    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?

    Looks good. Not sure about £22 delivery to NI though.

    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

    He's not set a price yet but mentioned around the £400 mark a month or so ago. Now this one is available on ebay he may revise it.
    Link here to the Facebook site, scroll down to videos
    Not actually available for sale till in the new year he says.

    Cheers. Tom

    I think the main problem is there seems to be one coming out every few months and there are no reviews, the Grainfather is more expensive than all of them but has hundreds and mostly positive.

    I have one of the regular Ace boilers and love it. If this turns out to be a success I would consider getting one eventually

    Same here, as much for the after sales service as anything else.

    Did you get the chance to ring them?
    Has anybody had direct dealings with them?

    It's a misleading way of wording it, this one reads like the grain must be crushed already.

    I've had direct dealings with Ace. They are local to me. They primarily run a catering equipment supply in Normanton (nr Wakefield).
    I bought a standard boiler from them about a year ago, with them being local I collected.
    Was a great price, friendly enough staff, and helpful email support.
