I've got those pumps on mine and I bought it in August 2013.
To brew or not to brew, that would be a stupid question !

If I switch the power off then back on I get the machine beeping when it comes on and I do have the choice of continue/abort.
So mine is the same as others have described on here.

To work out what happened the other day during clean up I can only assume that I bumped the power cord and it made a break in power twice in the one movement, because when I switched the power off then on, then off then on again, the program would not allow me to resume but went to the window that appears when you first power up the BM.

I am pleased that I have got to the bottom of this one. :cheers:


Good to hear Dicko.
You mention rice hulls, put some in a cup and pour boiling water and let steep. Drink some and I don't think you'll use them again.

I have posted the info on "rice hulls" here

By 20L BM is from early 2011 and I do have both the auto-resume function in a case of power failure & a power dial on the pump.

I do get wort fountains every now and then - this is probably due to the fact that I still get LHBSs to mill the grain for me & they may alter their gap setting every now and then.

Trust that once I get my own mill and dial it in, that problem should go away.

Lack of predictability with wort fountains prevented me from doing an overnight mash so far.

Dicko,
Instead of using rice hulls (didn't know about bad taste) you could try the wet mill technique that leaves larger segments of intact grain husk therefore a more porus grain bed.

Hi Victor,

I have tried that method twice over the years and I do know that it works for others, however I seem to put too much water in or something because both times I have ended up with one big mess of "porridge" in my mill.
I have a 3 roller mill that is very gentle on the husks as it is so I don't feel that I would get much advantage with the wet grain method.
