    So as the title suggests, I have pre-ordered from Malt Miller, the 7 gallon brew bucket with thermowell.
    Saying good bye to plastic buckets. Anybody on here already use them or similar? and at only 52cm x 31cm it will fit in my insulated kitchen cabinet just right.
    Next purchase next week will be Dark Farms 10 litre keg system. Shiny times ahead.

    I bought the brew bucket a few months ago and it really is a great piece of kit. Well built, easy to clean and even easier to use. The tap makes taking test samples and racking a doddle. After using it a few times I think I may need to start using a blow- off tube rather than air lock as the fermentation has been quite vigorous and I don’t think there is a great deal of headspace if you brew 23litres.

    Love mine for all the reasons @SkyBlue mentioned above, I've fitted an elbow from malt miller for a blow off tube which works well for closed transfers but have to be careful not to suck up starsan when coldcrashing.

    I was browsing the SSB website earlier agree @BrannBrew mentioned some of their kit...

    Shiny... Soooo shiiinyyy... :D

    I have to say, just the brew kettles look amazing - just little ingenious things like being able to hang the lid on the handle and markings inside to show liquid volume in L *and* Gal

    And did I mention they're shiny? I mean they literally might as well cut the carp and rebrand themselves to "Shut up and take my money" or "Go on, you will, you will" :D
