100L boilers

Postby orcy » Fri Sep 15, 2017 5:57 pm

Is there any reason noone is selling 100L milkcans anymore? What options are there apart from "pro" level boilers for 2500 bucks?

Should i just find a local stainless guy to make me one?

80L old style kegs work well and if you are set on 100L volume get someone to weld 30L worth of a 50L keg on the top like aussiedistiller did.

Yeah. I understand there are options for builf your own.
And ill probably go that route.

There are just lots of old threads pointing to 100L milkcans with all the ferrules ready to go. Everyone still has 50L versions, i just cant find any 100L ones anymore.

Have you spoken to Sue at 5 star? What is shown on the website does not necessarily reflect what they actually have.

That being said, 50 litres is a good size for a hobby still.

Cheers,

+2 on calling 5 Star. I bought a 100L milk can boiler from them a few months ago. I'm pretty sure everything is made to order, so they can probably have one made...
