I don't know what circles you run in Sky but that sounds dirty to me.

For my BIABers out there, these are on sale right now at Menards for $14.99!! Normally like $22 I believe. Hung mine from the rafters in the garage. Works great!! (Auto-locks as well).

Jeremy, yes this is the 3500W. I've been brewing on an 1800W induction plate with a 5 gal kettle for awhile now, and love it. I just wanted to be able to brew 5 gal batches inside. I just so happen to have 240V already in my brew room. :beer8
This seems to be a tried and true induction/kettle combo on Homebrewtalk.com.

That's awesome. My kettle and mash tun are induction ready, so I've considered doing that as well but I don't have another 240v power outlet. Could always unplug the dryer on brew day I suppose!

A couple people have asked me about a base for the medical oxygen cylinders since they are top heavy and tend to very easily fall over and damage gauges etc. Unlike propane, O2 is simply a compressed gas ( i.e. no liquid) so you can simply lay the 02 bottle down when oxygenating without any danger.

I saw today that Adventures in Homebrewing has $39 used 5 gallon ball lock kegs. Or you could get four for $156.

Pin locks are going for $29 for a single or $100 for four. It's a real decent price for an introduction to kegging.

Spent a little time this morning swapping out the quick release fittings on the hoses. Going to take a bit of getting used to but I think the extra flow is worth it.
