I think the BM appeals to all sorts of brewers, from the ultra geeky need to know the process inside out type, to the mid range need to know enough but don't take it too far, to the lazy press a button and off it goes type; I am probably in the middle of the range.

Each to their own, at the end of the day we all make beer and enjoy the process, a thread like this can be either interesting or just so complex it gets scanned by someone like me who is midway between geek brewer and lazy brewer, but a thread like this is what keeps the community alive with all points of view expressed.

:D
To brew or not to brew, that would be a stupid question !

Geez Royco! I got almost 5 litres boil off for my BM20!!!


Victor,

As you know, I have also a BM20 model. I also use the stainless steel lid during the boil.
My house is at sea level.
Few days ago I did the experience of boiling water (20L) during exatcly 1 hour, with the lid on the top of the BM.
After cooling to approx 35C, I've got 17.3L (Boil off 2.7L/hour). How did you get 5L/hour?

I decided to measure the height of the rod markings with a metric. The 25L mark corresponds to 27cm (measured from the bottom of the BM). 1cm corresponds to approx 1L (24L/26cm, 23L/25cm, etc). Did you get these values too?

Cheers,
Luis

Victor you should not be boiling with the lid on. Try your experiment again with no lid, or, to keep a strong boil I have to drape a piece of tin foil over about 1/3 of the top.
I wasn't planning on going for a run today but those cops came from nowhere!

Don't know why you got the impression I boil the wort with the lid on.
You must allways boil with no lid to get rid of the DMS.
