Yes, that's more of what I meant. Basically, I was hoping that by this point in time, Spiedel would offer a U.S. plug model, so that after I spend $3,000 the first thing I wouldn't have to do out of the box, is cut off the plug.

And as far as just getting the other type of recepticle installed, yes I had considered that option as well.

Question pointed at Yambor, did you ever get your 20L and if so, what are your feelings on downsizing from the 50L to the 20L?

My gut says to go with the 50L, even though I usually brew 5 gal. batches, because it gives me the availability of making high gravity beers, which I do quite often.

Am I looking at this wrong?

Doesn't the 20L only have one pump? The 50L has two pumps and may have a stronger heating element as well. The reason I believe the 50L has a stronger heating element is because there has been a post about the need for stronger circuit barker for the 50L, as well as the need to heat a larger volume of liquid. Would a 20L user please confirm my suspicions?

The Aussie fella posted some nice pictures, some kind of a pulley winch if I remember correctly.

I remember that one, and it is what got me thinking. I don't really have the room for a winch setup, but hydraulics would work similarly in a smaller area. Just thinking out loud here.

I would like to hear from one of the original buyers from last year, on their opinions after having the systems for almost a year.

Not an expert, but agree with your reasoning with relation to high gravity beers.

The 50L does have a stronger heating element - it is actually 2 of the 20L elements. If not, I dont think it would have the ability to boil, as the 20L I have seen only had a gentle boil.

@ Redstag

The 50L heating element is longer than the 20L's.

20L unit can be used for high gravity brewing just as same as 50L, just the scaling is different. Exactly the same procedure: mash 2 times.
