What to do with old gear?

Post by aamcle » Wed Sep 06, 2017 9:46 am

Due to an unexpected upgrade I have a redundant brewery, a recirculating Biab based on a 40 litre buffalo boiler, with a custom basket, a pump and a pid/ssr control unit.

I've thought of selling it BUT I built it including all the electrics, I believe it to be safe but I don't want to be sued if somebody bought it and did something stupid.

Can I safely sell it or should I break it up?

Good question! I am hanging on to some gear for the same reason.

Included the phrase "untested for spares or repairs" in the sales description,also to further cover your back cut off ,or dont include the mains cable,if some one puts a new cable on then its up to them.

Aamcle I'm thinking about upgrading to a recirculating system, drop me a message on Facebook. For spares or repairs of cause, I have an electrician friend who can 'repair' it for me

Maybe you should say 'For Decorative Purposes Only' -- like homebrew shops do with stills. :roll: :lol:
