    I'm interested in a large autoclave. Commercial scale bigger than an AA 75 something that could do possibly 100 bags or more. If anyone has any leads or connection please let me know. This would be for Spawn production.

    Here she is. It's the one on the right. Most of the white paint has flaked off, I guess they wanted it to look pretty for the sale.
    Bought from Aloha Medicinal. I also have a cart for the track. Not sure how much fright would be. This sucker is heavy!

    I'm not in a rush to sell. I still think one day I'll get it running. But if someone really wants to make use of it, that would make me happy.

    It is designed to be heated by a stream generator. The unit is double walled so it can be heated "wet" or "dry".

    That looks like it might hold over 100 grain bags lol. Very cool unit. You could sterilize a Smart car in there.

    yeah woof. if you are still after a smaller, cheaper unit that won't require a boiler inspection, PM me. I know a guy that does microbrew/still equipment but does them as mushroom sterilizers on the side.

    It's still here. I have no immediate plans to connect it up. So, until I do, it's available.

    I might even be interested in helping to get it going. I'd love to give her life again!

    I would love to find one of those in my neck of the woods. I have a lead on a reasonably priced unit, so fingers crossed, but that thing looks nice.
