Hi Robinson

I went throughout the same debate and decided to go for the 50l to avoid any later "regret". Have ordered the 50l together with the shorter mash pipe. Gives me the ability to brew 20 and larger. See postings under potential owners. The 20 vs 50 has been analyzed.

thanks guys. I'd seen the discussion on here and can see that with a 50L kit and the shorter malt pipe, 25L batches can be brewed. I did wonder though, whether the heating element on the 50L kit would be too powerful for a 25L batch? obviously not but any comments/advice would be appreciated. cheers.

Technically can't see why it should have an impact as the temparature is controlled - one of the key advantages for me I.t.o going for the more expensive BM system. I presume that with the larger heating element all that can happen is for the temparature ramp up to be quicker. Layman's comment cheers :cheers:

Hi robinson, if you have enough of the ready, go for the 50L and short pipe. You won't regret it. If you go for the 20L you will almost certainly regret it as 20L brews seem to evaporate without much effort.
My son and I get through them in a week without even trying our best.
Best regards, Roy. (From the Northeast - Yorkshire/County Durham - but now in South Africa)

+1 in my case it's my wife that helps me out with the evporation :lol:

An easy decision to go with the 50L :beerbang:
To brew or not to brew, that would be a stupid question !
