"Cheers peter i have thought of it, i have looked at small low rpm motors on aliexpress etc and will likely put on of these in rigging up to turn on when the PID switches the HEX on."

"Blake , I have seen people use a small pump or a stirring propellor in the small HEX urn to keep heat distribution even, after trying without one and seeing non uniform heat."

"I don't think its silly at all provided you have good ventilation in your brewing area and don't mind refilling LPG bottles every so often. And you already have the blichmann burner."

"the guy that sells the ones on trademe is a mate of mine. think he sells them for $95, he is based in palmerston north. Maybe see if you know of anyone heading through that can pick one up for you. They are worth the money and are very well made."

"Scott B has one of the 130 or 140 litre pots from Allgrain, its awesome quality, looks the same as the good $250 Chinese ones but isnt the same, is actually much better."
