    Cheers! It was a bit easier for us, in one way. We'r on a septic tank. But I have to pre-treat all liquid waste to PH balance and will be looking for the most env friendly sanitizers to miminise any contaminants. I have a 50l BIABasket system and I love it! Not sure on my 200l upgrade pot dimensions yet as it is early days for me. This looks interestingb, but USA,,, http://arborfab.com/BIABasket_c_24.html and this with a collar;

    Sorry turns out that isn't what Godstone brewery do, what I was going to say before I though they did this was that keeping 30l fermenters in a temp controlled room works fine but larger vessels (lower surface area to volume) get hotter from the fermentation and the room would have to be cooled right down possibly below 0 to keep them cool enough them turned up at exactly the right time when fermentation gets softer. So I would advise getting temperature controlled fermenters.

    Cheers, I've also asked Mark (Mr Lard) @ brewbuilder for a price for a basket to fit the 200l,,, Just out of interest of course. It's his TC tanks I like; https://www.brewbuilder.co.uk/tc-tanks.html. My 50l pot has TC's and they work great. The 200has 5 Triclamp ferrules for fitting heating elements, taps etc

    Just found this Colorado brewing systems. https://www.cobrewingsystems.com/co...rewing-system-100-200-and-300-gallon-versions

    I suspect (in my novice brewing innocence) that they may use the whirlpool effect of the Vorlauf to prevent stuck mash? as their BIABasket base seems to be a 400u (?) mesh base. The Camurri seems to use paddles to keep the mash mobile and doesn't recirculate like the Speidel.

    I have contacted Powell brew about a 100l pot with 3 x 40mm holes around the base using their mesh screen in the pot raised to 60mm to allow 2 x 2,400w immersion heaters with TC 1.5" bulkheads. I will run this and can then be a next step to a Brewbuilder 200l TC pot system and I have a 100l BIABasket to fit. My lovely puppy 50l current BIAB will be my induction whirlpool/Vorlauf?

    Comments/views welcome!!
