German wheat beer with 7.5 kg / 16.5 pounds of malt

Unread postby Omphteliba » Fri May 11, 2018 2:16 pm

Hej,

I bought the increase disk from Bac Brewing and to break it in I brewed a wheat beer with 7,5kg malt in the 20L Braumeister. It went well, the Braumeister could easily handle the malt. Of course there was a hiccup at the very end, but there is always something going wrong...

The video has an english subtitle.

hi,

Thanks for the video, I think I will look into the BAC disc for my 20Lt BM.

Just on the numbers for efficiency, really low??

You had a mash eff of 59% and overall Brewhouse of 55%, that is terrible.

Ive been using my BM for 6yrs now, average mash efficiency is 92%, average overall brewhouse efficiency is 76%.

Do you think that the MAX grain used is the reason for the low efficiency?

I think low efficency can be caused by the compression of the upper sieve.
A silicone seal will hold it up. Efficency sorted.
Turning it over makes it the same volume as a bac.

Hej DWP,
don't mind the ficticious efficency numbers form Beersmith. I don't care for efficency, so I never really setup my system in beersmith. Sorry, for posting the nimbers!

@mashy: I didn't use the upper sieve, just the "increase disc" from BAC; it sits on to of the malt pipe, so no compression.

You don't need it with the bac disc.

But you can do the same as the bac disc with just a little silicone seal.
