Their material is certified as food safe up to FDA standards, which are the most stringent in my experience. The size of the material appears to be spot on from what I've been able to measure. It's not that expensive by the metre, but they don't provide it by the metre! I'll test a few variations and report back as soon as.



Interested! Norway.

Quick update: samples have been received in the UK and are going to be reposted to Norway on Monday. Hoping to get them by the end of next week or beginning of the following week. Then I'll assess and run a test. Several of you have expressed interest and I have made a note of that. What's the circumference of the 50L malt pipe, anyone?

Any updates? How do you want me to measure. I do have a bm50 mash pipe in my closet. Waiting for the machine to arrive. (late this week I hope)
35,4 * pi =111
I hope thats close enough, inside of the mashpipe, top side..

No updates, I'm afraid. Bit of a holiday here since last Thursday. So post has been delayed by a day or two :(

I bought a rubber seal from a company called Kuntze here in Sweden and it works fairly good. This is what it looks like:

Looks like standard rubber edging material, Lindh. Not the best of fits I can see, a little ‘baggy’. It looks like it’s designed for a larger plate thickness and lacks the desired level of tapering and flexibility for a good fit. Is it certified ‘food safe’? When I done my measurements I allowed for a small gap to facilitate placing and removing the fliter plate without it getting jammed. This consideration allows the plate to continue to sink during pump breaks, which I think is part of the BM design and, according to Speidel, helps to redistribute the ‘flowing’ grains.

I don't really know actually and I'm not sure I like or need the seal. Used it twice and not gotten better beer with it ;-) Foodgrade silicone would of course be better and I also like the design when you bolt the filters together. A circular seal that just like the malt pipe bottom seal would be nice also.

nice tight fit

I'll give a go on my next brew. Seems a bit tight in the malt pipe, but goes in and comes out and the system is dry.
