For you 20L owners, if you could only get either the insulation jacket or the copper hood, which helps better to keep a nice rolling boil? I'm going to be buying a 20L in a few months and am trying to budget for this purchase and would like to get one of those two accessories but am not sure which is more worth the money. Thanks for any insight!

I'd go with the insulated jacket over the copper hood. The jacket is about 1/3 the price and you'll use it during the entire process not just the boil phase. If you need to you can always put the lid on half way to keep a rolling boil.

Granted you can always make your own jacket with a 10 dollar camping mat, but your system will look pretty silly with a beautiful copper hood and a janky, ghetto homemade insulated jacket.

Just get one of those $3.00 beach mats foam on the inside and reflective material on the other then cut it to suit that way you can get the copper hood as well ( you could even use a car window heat reflector) but the beach mat is better.

How tall is this unit? Nice job.

I also found a great use for it I wasn't expecting. During clean up it works great to swing the winch arm over the garden to hold it steady and at a good height while I hose it out. Nice.

Rocked my "bucket heater" in the last brew. Really helped ramp up the heat to boil and make it roaring. Used a coat hanger to make a hook to keep it from swimming.

Didn't order it yet... Still waiting.... Just got done with a remodel so I have to save back up (meaning pay off some cards!!)

You guys are way too talented to buy a plug rather than make your own but for those of us electrically challenged what do you think about this? It seems like a good value and fits within the power requirements for the Meister. http://www.stayonline.com/detail.aspx?id=8951

It's a C19 connector, not a C13. Here's the one I bought rather than making my own:

These are what I used to make an extension cord:

This on one end, this on the other end.

I had a disused light switch alongside a regular Decora duplex kitchen outlet which I rewired using a white Decora version of this.

Since the breaker is 20A and the wiring is 12/3 plus ground, this circuit can handle up to 4800w - more than adequate for either 20L or 50L Braumeisters. As an added bonus, I may use the socket for some European kitchen items.

The 20 L is a c13, I even checked with Speidel.

Hi Jonathan,

thanks for your interest in our Braumeister.

Yes we use a common C13 at the control.
So you can look for the right power cord
in the USA

Cheers

I ended up making a cord, before I decided to I did find these websites
