Have you looked here?:
sure did, and when I stopped drooling found, closer to my budget. They do all the drilling and what not, all I gotta do is connect the dots and start making beer. and then the question of the extras.... I'm pretty much sold on the plate chiller, but the auto sparge not so sure,

Equipment and Software / Going Electric

Hello All,

I've been brewing for about 2.5yrs, first extract kits, then after about a year tried AG using BIAB method on a propane burner. I've been thinking about upgrading some equipment and was looking at going electric. having the option to brew inside again is really appealing. Since I'm upgrading anyway, I thought I'd look into brewing more traditionally, HLT/Mash tun... HERMS, etc.

I've been saving up so cost really isn't the issue (to a point... like when SWMBO sees the $$$) and have decided to buy rather than build, but was wondering about some of the "extras" like an autosparge or plate chiller. Are they worth it?

My wort chiller does a pretty good job cooling 5G batches, not sure how it would do with 10G, making plate better option.
And since I haven't sparged, wondering if the auto sparge will save me a headache or is just a neat toy and a waste of $$$.
