First time poster here

Postby micah-jon » Sun May 14, 2017 4:53 am

Hello All,

Coming at you from the land down under, South Australia to be precise.

Joined this forum a while ago and have read some good pointers here. Before commenting or asking any advice thought I'd do the customary and introduce myself

I have been distilling for about 5 years now. I've had a few setups any currently running a SD 150L bain-marie boiler with a 4" bubble plated setup (pro caps).

Mostly make rum however my goal has always been AG bourbon. Pinto's enzymes have been a huge help with my AG endeavours, couldn't rate them high enough.

Thanks for having me.

Welcome. And I envy that BM!
Overhead the albatross
Hangs motionless upon the air
And deep beneath the rolling waves
In labyrinths of coral caves
An echo of a distant time
Comes willowing across the sand
And everything is green and submarine

Many thanks for the welcome Gents.

Pa_bon, if you are considering a BM don't think twice. The BM Punkin fixed me up with is probably the best money I have ever spent. Actually I do love my motorbike but the BM is probably one of my favourite toys.

Welcome to another Punkin customer from a fellow SA member, also debating between brewing equipment or motorbike love. You will like this place.


Cheers.

Bob, hate to think Punkin would have to help Micah with that sort of BM.
