Blichmann G2… Shipping Update + Shopping Tip

blichmann_g2

On the 26th of August I ordered a new Blichmann BoilerMaker G2 for my home brewery.  I have two G1 Kettles that I’ve been very pleased with.  I’m excited to put the G2 to work.

The recently announced G2 Kettle is available in 7.510152030 and 55 gallon sizes.  The BoilerMaker G2 is designed and manufactured in the US.  It includes a Site Glass w/Laser Etched Volume Markers, Adjustable Angle BrewMometer Thermometer, Linear Flow Valve (think ball valve only better?) and tool-less dip tube.  The G2 also features a 1.2 height to diameter ratio.

I had a chance to see John Blichmann do a demonstration at NHC and one thing that came through is his passion for homebrewing and homebrewers.  He started building this gear because… he’s a homebrewer.  This translates into a bunch of well thought out features that are designed with the homebrewer in mind… the valve now features a cool touch silicone handle, the finish is not brushed to hide finger prints, the lid can be stored on the kettle, the handle and the valve can now be oriented in any direction and… more.

Shipping Update:  For those of you that have been considering one of these and are wondering about shipping speed.  I ordered my 10 gallon on the afternoon of August 26.  I received an email, today, almost exactly 7 days (to the minute) later saying that it has shipped.  Of course, no guarantees yours will ship in that amount of time, but it does indicate that Blichmann is generally staying on top of orders.

Shopping Tip:  Blichmann gear is generally price controlled.  That means it’s going to be about the same price no matter where you get it.  AIH offers the equivalent of 5% back via their rewards program.  They are also offering free shipping.
