What is a your Next Purchase?

Recommended Posts

When I think my whole beer, brewing and BBQ setup is almost done a new product is released or I research and find something awesome I want to buy. It honestly never ends........

My next purchase is a grain mill and everything that goes with it. 
 

What is next on your list??

Me too.  I bought a Victoria Grain Mill back when I was doing 200-300g grain additions to my kit brews.

It does a great job at that scale, but 4kg of grains takes ages.  Not looking forward to doing 6kg or over for a full batch.  It is not designed to have a power drill attached to the spindle to speed things up either.  Now I wish I had got a proper grain mill for all grain batch sizes.

Guten and Guten related accessories. Gotta take the leap and get away from kits. My tightness and fear of the unknown keeps stopping me from clicking buy on the cart.

A CO2 cylinder swap, another fermenter and a bag of ale malt. 😂

I've pretty much got my brewing and BBQ equipment sorted and other than things needing replacing every now and then, my purchases are all ingredients or cleaning supplies.

Probably a three tap tower for the kegerator. Damn soda water!

No purchases other than ingredients I'm afraid. I just took delivery of a new InkBird and will get a second fridge going on the weekend. SWMBO would take my head clean off, if I bought more gear 😂 Well, maybe a bottling tree and a bottle rinser. I've knocked on the door about this a few times and it seems to be an option 🙂

Good choice 🙂 I have one as a xmas pressie, so haven't used it yet. It's really hard not to 🙂 But because it is also a b'day present, I'll start using in in about 3 weeks time. I can't wait any longer.

Still thinking of a 3V system. The robobrew is still kicking goals after 3 years but its limited from a size point of view. Being time poor im finding myself doing a lot of concentrate batches and topping up with H2O just to keep up the supply.

I looked at water testing kits but for a decent one it's too expensive for me to justify. Was cheaper to just buy a small still and make my own water.

I looked at both too, however due to my fifo lifestyle it’ll be too hard to distill water and feel comfortable that there isn’t water all through my house wrecking my timber floors while I’m gone. 
So a couple of hundred in the water chem bucket is safe assurance

Nice!!! Not quite sure yet, looking at a specialized or a giant, only because I can buy them locally. 
tossing up dual shocks or hard tail, I’m going towards dual shocks. 
it’s a bit of a thing where I can ride with my young fella, as I’m a bit scared of the downhill stuff again as a few years ago being an idiot I very nearly broke my back. 
It took me over two years to get over it. Still have small issues now but mostly over it nearly 5 years later

I recently upgraded to 1x11 on mine, best thing ever. 
My riding has improved too recently after the fear got a hold of me, hitting 6 foot wooden drops and gap jumps again. So what if I am 46?

I have a GT Avalanche Sport hardtail. Entry level but does the job for a scaredy cat like me.

I used to do a little road cycling and only just started riding mountain bikes. It is so much more fun. I live across the road from the bush which has heaps of tracks.

We’ve got some pretty awesome rides here in the SW of WA. Some are mental. There’s a few in Balingup that would test the world elite.

One thing I’d love to do is ride the Cape to Cape. Just casually not racing like what’s on every year, those guys are nuts. 
No one likes riding a bike on a beach.......

Would you ever buy the reverse osmosis water kit?
