As I mentioned not too long ago, it is incredibly simple to put together yourself. The dryer (heavy gauge) extension cords are already available. The only thing you must do is cut the included plug off, and strip the wires a little. A new plug to match your 220V (dryer) outlet at home can be found cheap at any hardware store (lowes, home depot...etc).

The assembly only requires one to place the wires in 3 grooves, and screw them down. That is literally all one must do. There is no soldering or anything like that required.

Of course, it would be wise to use a multimeter to check all the connections, but even with limited experience, this is really easy to do. Plus you have everyone here to help!

Hopefully Speidel will offer a US plug in the near future. Bottom line though, I seriously doubt that you would make any kind of money on simply assembling some power cords. Also, you would assume some amount of risk if you damage someone's $2k unit, or possibly even their house/ electrical system.

I ordered them as soon as my norwegian vendor made them available and have been using them asis without any modifications (20l) since with no issues. They're good.

All new models are shipped with them.

Default Doble-Doble with BM

Hello Chris, I think that you performed a "doble-doble" mashing technique with BM, right? I would like to ask if somebody here try a "doble-doble" technique, but you just answered my question before I made it.....

Default My version of the 220 volt plug conversion

The european 220 wire is quite small in diameter and the US 220 plug is made to accept a much larger gauge wire.
So I figured I would need to beef up the euro wire so the US plug could be attached and secured safely.

First I cut the European plug off in a way to use the portion next to the plug
so it could be used to make the euro wire thick enough
to be secured buy the larger 220 plug wire support.012.jpg

Next I threaded the euro wire through a section of 10 gauge sleeve that I had removed to expose
the wires for the 10 gauge wire extencion cord that I needed to make.014.jpg

I drilled out the part cut from the euro plug to be able to go over the sleeve from the 220 euro wire.
The inside had been molded to accept just the wires and was not large enough in diameter to go over the 220 euro wire sleeve.

I Threaded on the part cut from the euro plug (small end first) over the wires and sleeve
to make the portion close to the 220 plug big enough to be captured by the 220 wire keeper.
(green plastic part in the US 220 plug)015.jpg

I then wired the 220 plug with the green and yellow wire connected to the negative
as suggested in an earlier post.016.jpg

Then connect the other two wires to their respective parts of the plug and tested with a volt meter… Before plugging into the Braumeister.

Is it possible to run a breumeister off a 110 to 220 Converter?. I have no access to 220 where I live.

Thanks.
