Blichmann BoilerMaker G2 and EdelMetall Bru Burner
« on: October 15, 2014, 05:05:29 AM »
I'm in the process of upgrading some of my homebrewing equipment.  I made a couple quick videos on the new BlichMann BoilerMaker G2 with the HopBlocker and the EdelMetall Bru Burner I picked up to go along with that new kettle...

I have the old Blichmann pots, and I love them.  That new valve seems interesting.  Not sure I like the idea of more o-rings though.  It'll be interesting to hear a couple years from now, how well they do.

Good job!  Recording a video is tougher than it looks.

I expect that I'll probably replace those O-rings every 7 or 8 brews just for good practice.  I wouldn't want one to fail unexpectedly.

That shouldn't be necessary. What does Blichmann recommend?

Thanks Steve :)

I enjoy making videos.  I get paid by a grill company to make cooking videos featuring their grills so the homebrewing videos are just something I plan to do for fun :)

That explains your demeanor in front of the camera, the framing, and great editing. Keep em coming.

I picked one of those up a few weeks ago (will be kegging my second batch from it tomorrow). How are you liking it?

I'm pretty happy so far.  I did rig up a corny post to a rubber stopper so I could hit it with a couple lbs. of CO2.
