I get 1.01 mm as the thickness of the metal. Not trying to be snarky here, but would the ID be 2x1.01 less than the OD?

I cool the wort to around 20*C (or less for lager/bottom fermenting yeast) remove the immersion wort chiller, and stir thoroughly to get a fast anti-clockwise rotation going. It is amazing how much solid material settles out in 30-60 minutes. I then start to drain the wort into my fermenter.

Very little solid matter remains suspended, and I allow it to drain down to the drain tap before I start to angle the unit forward. There is often less than 1L remaining in the bottom of the BM - depending on the weight/vol of hops used in the recipe. The unit weighs little enough to make this operation easy.

I had planned to make a dip-tube, but now I consider there to be no need. YMMV.

I have read that copper is an advantage in the distillation process. Unless I'm mistaken, most/all? commercial beermakers and micro-breweries appear to use stainless exclusively.

Good Luck with the first brews.

Man, these things have gotten popular! Just spoke with Thorsten via email and he said they are 8 weeks out on delivery if I ordered a 20L today...

Iīve talk a lot with the head brewer of my online HBS (the one were I bougth the unit) and they are getting a lot of orders, specially for the 200l unit for small brewpubs. This machine itīs a beauty. Yambor44 I hope your 20l arrives soon. After using it I can pass a week without brewing: brew days are a breeze. I got to say I just love my braumestier

Any issues with running a water test with tap water anyone can think of? I have not set up a RO unit for brewing yet and would have to bring water from the kitchen RO with a 3 gallon tank.

Thanks!

what are you afraid of?? it's designed to hold/pump/heat water, with stuff dissolved in it. good to clean out the pump before using, mine certainly spit out some chunks of packing stuff and whatnot. i would just fill above the heat coil and run the heater and pump, without the malt tube
