Brewer's Edge thoughts
« on: April 21, 2019, 10:21:37 AM »
Didn't see any existing posts about this, so...  I'm thinking about getting the Brewer's Edge mash and boil system.  Anyone out there have one?  What do you think of it -- worth the money?  Is the one with the circulating pump worth the extra money, or is it just another thing to break down and/or leak?

Thanks y'all for your help.

They're decent, cheap AIO units. I personally would recommend the pump addition as it adds the ability to do a lot more. Pumps don't generally fail often. My homebrew club purchased one for teaching all grain techniques.

Thanks, buddy.  I went for it and ordered one -- should show up on my porch on Tues and I'll be tinkering with soon after.  Happy brewing...
