Re: Anyone tried doubling 20L Braumeister volume like this?

https://forum.braumeisters.net/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=703 Anyone tried the above method, mashing twice using 2x 4kg grain and having a boil around 40l in a Braumeister 20? I've doubled up on output before but done a concentrated mash and boil and then diluted down as you would if you were extract brew...

I think they have upped it to 55L now for the buffer one. They already have some in Oz but they are still tweaking/working on ramping up production.

Re: Beer engine + polypins

I have successfully used a beer engine with polypins for years, there are different types of bags and with the right ones beer will last for month's. The ones I get are from 'Jigsaw baginbox' they are double skinned and for once only use, I keep them in a cool box so don't need to buy the cardboard...

Re: Mini Keg using carbonated beer

There are counter pressure devices specifically designed to fill these kegs, although you will need a pressurised vessel to transfer from. If you check out some of the German home brew shops they sell them.

Re: My Heath Robinson Sankey keg cleaner...

The rotating spray heads seen to vary quite significantly in the pressure stated to function properly - how true this is in practice I don't know but I deliberately didn't buy one because of its required minimum rating.

Re: Recommend me decent immersion chiller

When I bought my Braumeister I got the stainless steel one that Speidel make, I was expecting quite a drop in efficiency compared to a copper one but in practice it doesn't appears so, the Speidel one is a bit more beefy so it may not be comparing totally like for like. That said, the stainless stee...

Re: Fermentasaurus Mod

Thanks for everyone's thoughts. The outlet gap in the swivel nut is going to be a major limiting factor I think so I'm going to put this off I recon. I'll spend a tenner and get a 1ltr soda stream bottle for the collection bottle instead. Thanks everyone Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk Just be...

Re: 9l corny or 10l growler keg

I tried to find them on aliexpress as i have had the larger ones before and have couplers etc. I know malt miller stocked them at one point but obviously didn’t do to well with them You can buy them from continental sources (manufacturers/home brew suppliers), I will see if I can dig out some links.

The is some Aussie who has done something very similar if you do a Google search, although I'm not really sure it's worth it.

Re: Co2 refill adapter

Someone at my homebrew club is playing around with various ideas for avoiding lugging co2 cylinders around and shared this idea (note that I can't vouch for this as I've not tried it myself, but it sounded like an option for you to try): If you get a carbonator cap you can pressurise a PET fizzy dr...

Re: Co2 refill adapter

Damn. Great idea but ridiculous price for a small connector! They can be got much cheaper e.g. https://www.kegland.com.au/sodastream-cylinder-filling-adapter-filling-station-with-bleed-valve.html , I know it's in Australia but it has a quite useful video and they do have resellers here, although I ...

Re: Small batch chilling

You could just make a smaller coil chiller, although they are available off the shelf too.
