Malt Tube bearing improvement

Unread postby Uwe-K » Mon Dec 11, 2017 11:15 am

Hi all,

I had it once that my malt tube slipped back into the Braumeister when lifting it and postitioned it on the bearing ( ?? hope the translation makes sense ). Was no fun :?

So I was looking to improve it, below the outcome.

Have not tested it in real, but looks promising, is very stable, nothing slips ...

Just wanted to share

Nice work!

Another great idea that Speidel should incorporate into future versions of the BM

Nice, I am always aware the original method is a bit dodgy. It would never pass a workplace risk assessment.

A few weeks back I mentioned my little accident to them and recommended the improvement ... not much interest I have to say

Now I sent them the same picture - no idea if the will even think about it

Looks very nice but of course it's a lot more expensive. Maybe something for the plus model...

Great work and got me thinking.

Here is my poor man version. 4 zip ties. Seems to hold pretty ok. Need to test it in real condition now.

Would be easy to knock something up in 15mm copper pipe and end feed fittings. Would bring a bit of colour to the BM :wink:

You might find the weight of a full malt pipe will dent 15mm copper - 'tis quite soft ??

I think it would be OK. 15mm copper is not annealed and is quite tough. I have some kicking about from another project, and a load of elbows. I will see if I can knock something up before the next brew, which won't be to soon. I try to build up a stock before the winter, that shed gets damned cold !

Like the zip tie version this is already better then original.

But in my little accident the bearing was not slipping, the issue was the the malt tube moved ‚clockwise‘ and then the bolts were not lying on the bearing ( is this the right word ... could find a proper translation ) any more.
