From the looks of it I have the same glycol chiller unit as you. I have 2 of them, one working fine and the other serving as a giant paperweight. Any problems with yours??
I also have a BM20L in my brewery, curious what you do with yours, I use mine for all sorts; pasteurizing fruit purees, making starter wort for the yeast prop, steeping spices, etc.

Nice looking place!

Thanks dinnerstick, I use the 20l for test batches for the 200l, if I like it I do a double batch on the 200l. I just did a peach 1/2 Pilsen and 1/2 wheat beer. It was gone before we closed that day. I'll make a big batch of that.

Looks like a keg filler.

Where are your taps? I can't see any in the bar pics

Beauty! I'm curious, though. How's your efficiency? The 80-85% (on a good day) I get on a 20L Braumeister is great for the homebrew level, but I can imagine it could become problematic at the pro level. Can you get better numbers on the 200L?
