Hi everyone,

I wanted to show you my new setup, It's a one vessel electric brewing system.

There are actually two vessels
Main tank is a 40 Liter electric water Urn with a hole drilled at the bottom.
Grain tank is a 18 Liter plastic bucket with the bottom cut off.

The concept requires two perforated sheets, a bowl shaped one at the bottom and a flat one at the top both are stainless.

It is basically a no sparge system so mashing is done with full water volume. The grain bucket placed inside the main tank, the bowl shaped screen is covering the element, while wort is pumped from the side of the main tank to the bottom of the grain bucket and spills from the top to the main tank.

after one hour or so, the grain bucket is drained and removed and boiling starts as usual.

The urn's electric element is controlled through ranco controller; the probe is placed in the pump's outlet.


That's about it.

Royi, Israel

Ok, that's pretty sweet! A nice, compact design. Probably very easy to use.

Interesting! More complicated than a brew in a bag system, but you can control mash temp with this one which is hard in BIAB system.

Royi, that looks very interesting. Would you explain some more how this works for mashing your grain? I'm not quite getting the concept.

Thanks, It's very easy to use but has it's limitations.
I dont think i can get more then 75-80% efficiency.
the 18 Liter bucket can hold up to 10 lb of grain.

first of all, I forgot to mention that the bucket it pressed to to urn's bottom by the middle bar you can see in the first photo, so wort can't pass from one tank to the other.
While mashing the wort is pumped to the bottom of the bucket and the only way it can flow is up, through the malt and than back to the main tank.

I'll upload a video of the mashing process later today.

Looks like you have recreated this http://www.speidels-braumeister.de/ for a small investment. I would love to copy this design, please post details if you can.
