- 50l brew
- 20l brew

To date i have only made 20l batches. I have used the parameters supplied by other users for the 20l model in my 20l profile. The only thing i changed was the 'Mash Tun Weight' which I set to 22kg. I will have to figure it out more from that.

Anybody else figured out beersmith parameters for the shortened malt pipe in the 50l model?
There is a setup profile for the 20l in the beersmith forums

@Bierfest and @Rowlus. Thank you for your replies, Ive check the profiles on the beersmith forums. It seems like a work in progress I think I just have to play a little with it: its a great software but I still have to get used to it and check if it does the job for me to get the full version. I originally tought that the shortened malt pipe was somehow bigger than the malt pipe in the 20l version. All the sites that Ive seen advertise the short malt pipe to make 25l batches and the 20l unit well for 20l
I think I was wrong about this. Ill just have to use a little less water than in my previous calculations.
Anyone has any comments to share about this?

as far as the condensation question i dont think it will be a sticky mess since when you boil you are loosing water while all sugars and stuff just stay in the wort. it should just be steam sugar wont evaporate.

good luck on your brewing this machine is really great.
Thanks mate, i think you replied to my pm after i wrote these questions and made up my mind on going with a voltage converter. Then i can brew inside, outside, at a friends house whatever.

Thank you for the reply about the steam venting too, i think when i brew inside i will just use the dryer vent somehow as it vents to the backside of the apartment by the woods instead of venting into the parking lot and freaking out all of my neighbors

flow, since I recirculate and whirlpool.
It works great.

It is pricey - I paid $65 at local distributor
According to Adapt All, the manufacturer of this particular part, Fastenal carries their line and this will probably require a special order. They fellow I spoke with at Adapt All also told me they have less than 6 in stock in the factory warehouse. One less, since I ordered it yesterday.

A company called Advanced Pressure Fittings might also manufacture a similar part.

Question on the spigot mod. Is that a 1/2" ball valve? thanks.

I don't, what do you achieve by doing that?

I was always taught with my old propane set up to stir lots before the boil started because the wort could burn. I was wondering if it was the same for the braumeister.

Received my braumeister today. Still waiting on the insulation jacket and shorter maltpipe. Had my electrician buddy wire up my basement for it and we rewired the plug. I'll post some photos shortly, but wanted to ask:

1. I'm thinking about doing some mods... if I do the diptube mod, I want to be able to whirlpool the wort so I'm getting all the trub in the center. The copper tube from previous posts looked like it had some soldering or welding done to it. I'm not a plumber and I don't think I even have the tools to cut copper. Am I SOL on that particular mod?

2. For the whirlpool, it seems like I'd be better off buying a march pump and recirculating back into the kettle along the side wall to get any sort of decent whirlpool. Nobody has been able to achieve a good whirlpool using The Braumeister's built in pump, by modding the pump inlet by angling it off with a copper tube, right?
