Sorry guys..

Nothing exciting to report yet, except being really happy to get hold of the new model early, as I was waiting for this to get started and held back coz of the new modell. Due to family logistics and christmas holidays it will also take a few day before I can break the new wonder in. I also assume that you will get better updates when one of the "veterans" get hold of it. Being a real freshman i,m uncertain how much i can add to this forum for now. Will give an update of the freshman's experience as we move along though :)

What I can say though is that the current manual i got delivered does not give any actual info on networking functionality. Guess Speidel will await that till they have the web interface up n running.

Happy for any tip on best "accessories" to buy though .. will have to fill up with the rest of everything within the next few day to make the first brew before new year. Gues there are a lot of experience out there what is working or not ...

I'll be interested in your comments Niels, comparing the old controller to the new.

Hey congratulations Toivo, many happy brews mate. :beer:

I'm actually considering downgrading from a 50L to a 10L :) It seems that I don't have that much time to brew after all and the 10L might be ideal to pump out a crate every two weeks. I hope it is small enough it can sit in the kitchen on Saturday while I be a good husband and father.

I can relate to that. I have the 20l BM and bought the short maltpipe in the summer.

The coming year 80% of the brews will be with the short maltpipe. 100 l/year seems to be the max for me that can be consumed at home without having to give away too much. Like you I want to experiment and brew different kinds of beer.

OK, the 10L makes sense based on consumption, we get through approx 400L a year in our household, using the 50L to make 40L batches on around 10 brewdays a year is all I need to give me the variety and the quantity I need. I've also started to split the wort into 2 fermentors using different yeasts which gives me two different beers per brewday. Also I can brew batches that will hopefully go into an ageing process which I could never do with a smaller Braumeister as it would be consumed too quickly.

Something to think about for new buyers now that there are 3 sizes to choose from.

Hans, you need to up your game. My son has been a great help assisting me to get through 50L per month, without giving any to friends :)
Come on, I know you can do it.

:lol:
I know I can do it but I also know how it will make me look :roll:

I would like to have a sixpack but with your consumption my belly would like a barrel in no-time! :cry:

I also like to taste some good beers that I didn't brew myself and some wine every now and then and ... and ... .
I need to set some limits for myself or things will go wrong!

It's not easy Hans; we also love wine (South Africa produces really good low cost wines). We've cut down on food :lol:

Toivo you need to learn how to bail form all those annoying "family" events. Especially x-mas (I hate this phoney "holiday")
You just leave and tell everyone you have to go and brew more beer. Works every time. :beer:

Toivo (interesting name) ... where you from? Finland?
I make my own copper/ss chillers (immersion) - 20l & 50l and counterflow (cfc)

This 10ltr model has really got me intrested .Am i right in thinking that means it would produce 10ltr finished beer into the fermenter?

Yes, depending on the gravity it can be a bit more or a bit less.

I had 10 L of 1.054 wort in my fermenter and I left about 1 L in the BM. I used 2.5 kg of malt, but I'm sure I could have increased the efficiency a bit.

Niels how is the new controller? Do you think it is better than the old model, would you change you control box to the new model on your 50Lt if you were to decide to keep it?

Just wondering about an upgrade later in the year.

Cheers
