I think there are a lot of home brewers out there that still use the 3 vessel system setup, they are still very popular, and at the end of the day it is whatever you are happy with using :mrgreen:

My 3 vessel system made great beer but it was a lot of kit to store somewhere. Also, mucking about with pumps, transformers, tubing, spinny sparge arms and all that malarkey was fun at first but became a drudge. Also cleaning was a pain.

Having said that, for some people system building and tweaking, control panels and Heath Robinson contraptions is half the fun.

I suppose it’s horses for courses.

thats a couple of good pointers, storage and set upand breaking down. I have been doing some bean counting on the set up costs of buying and assembling my own kit again in pieces replacing the whole lot in a set time and budget or on the single high cost purchase of a one shot system. even with the cost of grain father its still very similar, especially once you add the costs of pumps, pipes, fittings, clips and so forth

I have only used one pot systems, but think for the price and quality you can't go wrong!

I normal sparge with cold water the only disadvantage is that it then takes longer to reach a boil.
