Balance brewer

Postby zapty » Sun Feb 19, 2006 10:56 am

Anybody looking for a balance brewer?
One to be had for around Euro 125 I do believe.
The sellers asking price is Euro 250 as the new price was about Euro 570.
Extra glass included.
The foto does not do it justice as they are quite beautiful once cleaned with a copper cleaner.
I own a couple from the same brand (Retro), a copper and a stainless one and they are handmade in Portugal, same quality as the Royal brand.
Nice to look at, fun to use and they make a delicious cup of mokka.
I am not the seller, just came across it on my tour of internet.

Seems a bit expensive, unless they're about 200 years old. How does the ballance brewer work?

Check out this manual at the other site:

Wow, I used to think my folk's Cona vac was a pretty neat idea, but this wins all the prizes for after-dinner entertainment.
It's the sort of gadget that mhuk would buy, although I'm not sure he would want to set light to any alcohol <..>.
