Haven't heard of this, but interested to get some details. I have not seen Blichmann refer to the BrewEasy as "Classic" before either as it shows in the ad above.

What’s the extent of the product? Did they just make an insertsble basket?

Sounds about right. Sorry I didn’t feel like signing up for another thing to watch the clip.

Looks like it's going to come with the flowmeter. How the water is recirculated is new. In picture 2 it shows a pipe with holes along it. John said it's inserted into the grain bed and the water is added vertically at different levels on the grain bed.

Sounds like the basket concept has proven successful and they're jumping on the wagon. I've been toying with the idea of having Utah Biodiesel fabricate me a mesh basket for my 30 gallon boil kettle. I'm not so sure the recirculation concept/tube is worth the hassle. I figure with the thermal mass of my batch size, I wouldn't need temperature control, and I can just occasionally stir the mash with a spoon to keep things homogenous.

If you check out Blichmann's site, multiple versions of their Brewcommander are on back order. Short Circuited Brewers has a comment about that in the above vid too, as well as possible reason.
