    Good afternoon

    I had a bit of a touch on my weekly football acca at the weekend landing a £20 win/ BTTS treble for a tidy return. I have a habit of then frittering such windfalls away but have started to think that as it is a windfall why not treat myself. I had been thinking the Robobrew 3.1 but then I watched David Heaths comparison and thought actually for a one off purchase maybe the GF.

    Anyway if I was to reinvest in this manner where is best to buy from currently? Are prices likely to drop anytme soon? Any other buying tips. Unfortunately I screen shot my betting slip and sent it to SWMBO so I need to get on with it before the funds are appropriated for other purposes. (New back fence anyone?)

    I have gone through a similar thought process over the last week after getting a good bonus at work....after all it’s a bonus so I should treat myself.

    I obviously was hugely tempted by the GF, but after watching hours of videos and reading tonnes of reviews. I decided the 2 main differences between the GF and RB were the chiller and the software / App

    I personally can’t justify double the price for the App, which is a nice to have but not so important and the Chiller, if it were say £100 more with just the chiller I’d get it.

    But anyway. Over decided upon the Robobrew and will be ordering tomorrow

    Yep I know what you mean. Im not so sold on the apps etc but Im also thinking if the odds on Carlisle to turn over Stevenage had been a bit slimmer then Id be 300 lighter anyway...

    Brilliant - and includes a chiller. But discount code does not work - it may have expired. I have emailed them. Thanks for this great tip.

    I know this has been done to death, but there is one concerning thing about the Brewzilla, and that is the certificate verification of EMC compliance.

    Have you considered eBay? You might get a good, used Grainfather if you are prepared to collect.

    Make sure your smartphone meets the requirements, particularly if it's an Android.

    Not really, the alleged testers were Foshan UC Testing and Certification Services Co Ltd. The certificate number is 2019025145E the test report number is 2019025145. How come Foshan UC Testing and Certification Services does not recognise this number?

    Thanks!
    I think i will get it from BrewKegTap, they seem really helpful as just bought a corny set up from them, plus they offer a 1 year guarantee.

    £330, including connections for the immersion chiller and delivery

    As sold by BrewKegTap, it is CE certified by Zenith and the number is 1719281. I don't know if the number can be checked.

    I have the certificates in front of me, the certificates are, certificate number as above and also Certificate number 2019026781L test report reference 2019026781 neither are recognised by the issuer.
    The license holder on the certificate is ANHUI HONYI INTERNATIONAL CORP. the manufacturing plant is ANHUI HONY INTERNATIONAL CORP. Strangely the manufacturing plant is just an office, and the owner of ANHUI HONY INTERNATIONAL CORP is one of the directors of Keg Land.
    Hopefully the powers that be can sort it all out without a recall.
