    How did you miss all our complaints ?

    Ask GroenSpook (groenspookasem) about Walts ... he will back me up

    Absolutely! Low efficiency using constant stirring and step mashing efforts, lots of stalks in the bag, fed everything I had left to the pigeons. Never again! Jakes will attest to this too

    if it's this https://www.candirect.eu/Brewing-Mac...brew-30-and-50 then it looks like the robobrew/brewzilla/dematech clones. Not much cheaper than GF and you need to buy the immersion chiller separately, bu I could be mistaken

    I've seen some complaints before, but never really paid attention. I just figured I'm still so new, my process is shit and therefore my efficiency is crock. I'll test it with the next batches being made (probably this weekend).

    I currently run a GF with all the bells and whistles including both still attachments, it's a neat piece of kit, but my next system is a Brewtools 80 https://www.brewtools.com/products/b...ro-p0000000188
    I wouldn't want to tell you what to buy, those units produces wort just like many other systems. I would suggest you
    - compare the warranty
    - parts availability
    - general support
    against price and other products and decide on then.

    edit: the demacraft, braumarkt, etc are all the same thing, there's an updated one with low density elements and a newer controller I think out there. V3.1 If I recall correctly

    Thanks for the advice! Will compare them and see.
    That system you are looking at is a monster! And the price of a small car

    So back to this. Sent them an email a few days ago (the 18th) asking for a 25kg bag of Vienna. Their listed price was (and still is) R478 for a 25kg bag. I waited a few days and then ordered elsewhere (no response from them).

    I got their invoice this morning. Price per bag was upped to R596 as per the invoice. That's a 25% increase. And that price excludes shipping, and VAT on shipping. Total invoice cost was R746.01 for the bag and shipping. A bit nuts, if you ask me.

    PS: My other malts are on it's way. R1,200 for 25kg Vienna and 25kg Pale including shipping to my door.
