Wow, very comprehensive answer indeed.

The main aim would be to pump the wort into the fermenter.
In that case I will try to build one similar to the Speidel one.

Thanks very much for all the input!

Yup build the pipe. Like gandalfs but with two pump feeds.

Just though, it would be a very easy mod to tee off the one pump to make a drain for trub too. No pumping required, just a simple drain.

You can also make the pump pipe take a spray head for wash down. I do prefer a scrub though.

PS. The forum does take a moment to get there sometimes. Press submit and wait for it..... We all get duplicate posts occasionally, you are not going mad :D

Just to illustrate, my work on a friend's BM50. He was not confident/handy enough and too scary to do it himself so he let me do it (still threatening to kill me if I had damaged its BM :lol: ). Worked out great and he is happy with it.

Nice work!

Do you have a picture from the inside as well?

Not sure what you mean by the inside. Because as I reused the standard BM pump inlet and outlet, just make a derivation between inlet and pump, it looks like a totally normal on the kettle.

All of the mods we are discussing don't affect the inside of the BM

I thought I'd add my variation on this theme on my 20L
I use this setup for draining and cleaning rather than pumping.

Took me a while, but I got there finally.
I've had to a few adjustments in order to get it right (which was frustrating at times).

Due to the extra plumbing, I've had to wait a bit for the air to be purged for the full flow to happen.

This mod and my first Over night mash, what could possible go wrong!?

Nice one.

I think you will like the mod, makes brew day a lot easier.

Couple of bits I have learnt... Cycle the valve to drain it. Make sure the 3way is shut before filling. Oh yes been there. :(

I drop a few f and c bombs along the way haha, but I'm happy with the result.

I've got some camlocks which will replace the barb. Was a nice surprise my ball valve could be installed the right way round so you could see the arrows.

Hopefully the attached pic will provide a glimmer of hope for anyone who got stuck with trying to replicate yours as I have discovered the elbow on the BM doesn't screw all the way in when you flip the pump around.
