Max Grain Bill

Unread postby nibber » Mon Sep 24, 2018 4:03 pm

So anyone know what max Kg grain bill in a 50 Litre is with short 25 Litre malt pipe in?
Speidel say for Braumeister 20 litre: maximal filling 6,0 kg
But the short malt pipe for the 50 is 25 Litre so will it take more grain ? :beerbang:

Maths would suggest it s 7.5kg all things being equal.

You might be able to...

A. Turn the top sieve over
B. Replace 500g of grain with sugar.
C. Just do 7.5kg. Won't make a huge difference to flavour if you reduce the pale malt.
D. Use the 50l tube. If the water volumes work.
E. Make a 30 tube from the 50.

Lots of ideas...

It depends on the composition of the grist. Crushed grain is heavier than flakes or torrified. With the top plate inverted or a BacBrewing plate the maximum is about seven kilos. Any more than that means that you will have a problem with stirring in the mash and end up with dough balls and reduced efficiency.

Good point.
Given that the best way might be to try to run the recipe in the larger tube.

Thinking out of the box. What about drilling a couple of holes in the 50l tube so that they are positioned about half the distance up from the height of the 25l tube. This way the wort should run off ok. Block the holes up with stainless steel bolts when using the full volume 50l. Would need a spacer pipe to hold the top filter down below the holes.

I asked Speidel if they could make a 37 litre tube a few years ago and Ralf said yes but the price would be prohibitive. I think I might give this idea a try by buying another 50 litre tube and drilling holes in it. If it works I will do the same with a malt tube for my 20 litre BM. Then I will have three different malt tubes for each model.
Many thanks for the suggestion Brian.

Yup it's on here. Drill holes to give required volume and bung for full capacity with either a band or silicon DJ corks.
