Dicko's BM and other equipment

Unread postby Dicko » Sun Mar 16, 2014 3:17 am

Found a pic of my brewery, taken not long after I got the Braumeister

The copper Wort Chiller has been since replaced with a Stainless Steel one.

The overcoat is a home made one from Nitrile Rubber.

Thanks Jeff,

The BM is the best thing I have ever bought. It makes any brew day totally enjoyable.
Did a Dortmunder yesterday. Hit all expected figures spot on and the brew is happily chugging away in the fridge at 12 deg c under the watchful eye of a Wyeast Bavarian Lager yeast. :cheers:

Nice setup! That's one hell of a hopper, too!

I used to have a bigger brewery of 60 litre capacity and I made the hopper to suit up to 11 kg of grain. Now it copes easily with the 20 litre BM.

What sort of mill are you running Geoff? I still have my old Valley Mill from years ago and it's never let me down...touch wood.

When I retired the old Marga, I bought a 3 roller Crankenstein from the USA and that is when I built that frame and hopper.
I have not looked back with that mill, it probably has milled 2 to 3 tonne of grain just off the top of my head.....could even be more :P

I used to have a Valley mill on my wish list as they were the only quality mill available many years ago but I had to make do with the modified Marga then when finances permitted the Crank was on the market and very favourably priced so I bought one of them.
Now there are many choices but unless something serious happens to mine I am sure it will outlast me... :lol:

Very neat Dicko.
Re: "the worst thing…….." I do woodwork as a hobby and the local store, at no extra cost, makes the machines I buy grubby and full of sawdust, which reduces the value by at least 80% ;0)
This is important after telling my wife to cut expenses.
