Yes. They should be shipping it soon. I asked about getting a insulated collar so I could piggy back it with the lid and get free shipping. We'll see. I am about half way thru my phase 4 rest. Just went with default mash schedule. So far

1 Phase/Rest 5 mins at 65 c
2 Phase/Rest 30 mins at 65 c again
3 Phase/Rest 30 mins at 73 c
4 Phase/Rest 15 mins at 78 c

Looking pretty clear, would love to post some pics but this new, top of the line, latest and greatest software on my imac can't seem to locate them so I can DL to a host site! My MacBook Pro works flawless. Called tech support 4 times...what a f**king joke they are.

Chilling the wort now. Restarted my computer to get the pics to load to host site. ;-(

Here's a couple of pics of the mash recirculating. I have taken video all session so as soon as I get done I will get that up. Not anything fancy, but it shows how it goes.

Looks great. The wort seems very clear, I can see the holes in the screen. I'll bet it smells good too. I'm on phase 2. Let us know how your boil goes. I get a little bored during the mashing phase because there's not much to do.

Boil went really well. Set it at 102 as suggested and it rolled the whole time.

This chiller went fast until about 53c (127) then I had to swirl it around. Dropped another 10c right away then stirred, then another 5-10c now its poking at 72F and my chill water is at 64F. Oh well, I'll wait it out....

It's amazing how well the Braumeister clarifies the beer. Just something else that their relatively simple design takes care of.

Can you run the pump(s) in combination with the immersion chiller? Wouldn't be a true whirlpool chiller but should speed things up greatly.

Thats a good question! Anyone know the answer? would also come in handy when cleaning.

Edit: Just push the "Pump" button. When in manual anyway. Cleaning right now!

Yes, push up and down arrows together to exit program mode and push just the down arrow to enter manual mode. Push enter to start pump. You'll be surprised how fast it will cool your wort down. Yambor44 how are you going to clean the elements. I thought I had them pretty clean but when I was starting to brew today I noticed a light buildup. I'm more concerned that if I don't get them clean each time the crud will build up making the elements less efficient. I think the 20l needs another 500 watts to give a good boil without partially covering the pot.

Hfk2,

I heated my water up to 122F (50c) HOT and added PBW (2 TBSP). I added the PBW while it was heating up with the pumps running and it seemed to mix it decently. Then I took a small stiff bristled brush and scrubbed the elements. I also used a smaller brush to clean the pump holes.
