I had an interesting experience yesterday that I need to share just for the humor of it.
I had ordered a 7 gal SS Brewtech Chronical fermenter and received it via FedEx yesterday. I had also ordered the leg extensions, casters, and the accessory shelf for this fermenter so that I can roll it around my brewery and my cooler. Everything, minus the shelf arrived with no problems. However, I had an extra large sized box with the shipment that perplexed me as to what it contained. I opened it and much to my surprise found a half barrel More Beer fermenter, complete with insulation and peltier unit in the box. It had everything minus the controller, valves, and the stand. What's a mother to do?
Now being the honest person I am, I called More Beer and explained that I had not received the shelf but somehow had this extra fermenter. I mentioned that I would be extremely happy to keep it without the need to pay for it due to their error. After some chuckling on his part, the rep. told me that he would be glad to sell it to me at a discounted price (a bit over $1000) so it didn't have to be shipped back to California. Of course, after pondering his offer for about a nanosecond, I said no because "A" I don't have room for it, and "B" I didn't want to spend $1K on another fermenter I really did not need. (I already have the half barrel SS Brewtech Chronical and the new one will be used for small batches and test batches so I can sell all of my glass carboys and move away from glass).
Thought you all might enjoy my dilemma here. Comments, guffaws, etc. will be entertained.
