Re: Grainfather - first impressions

"Seal on the bottom plate is terrible. An absolute nightmare to get in place". With mine I always found the seal would push off as you are putting the lower mesh plate /gasket in Solution- just rub some grain dust from your malt ingredients round the seal and put it in-it then goes in a treat! and d...

Re: BM20 Table/Stand Suggestions

I needed something substantial to take the weight/dimensions of my 50 Litre Braumeister
I bought one of these Youngman 600 step up platform Wickes £59.
Nice equal dimensions compared to the other smaller width ones.
Folds up + nice height and swl up to 150Kg takes my 50 Litre Braumeister ok

Re: Ordered a Grainfather!

A great purchase-I bought one when they first came out, 2015 I think-mine has been bullet proof -only had to change the filter (upgraded and FOC at the time as had problems with the original filter getting blocked) and mine was the old version with the old controller so also bought the Grainfather c...

Re: Grainfather counterflow cleaning

I pump PBW @55c through mine and and then rinse with clean water-sorry to say haven't been impressed with the Grainfather cleaner after using 2 x 500g tubs of it-I found it never cleaned the bottom of the Grainfather properly-thought I would try PBW and it came up like new so have never gone back to...

Re: Grainfather High Performance Cleaner

Not impressed with the Grainfather cleaner- i have used two tubs of it-i now use PBW all the time- the Grainfather cleaner never used to shift the build up of the crud on the base of my Grainfather. :oops:

Re: New Grainfather question

Sounds like a new model unit that has had an old controller fitted to it,mine is a first generation model with the dual switch on the base,i had to assemble mine completely from the box-maybe it was a new model one that was a display item that got scratched so they sold the new controller and fitted...

Grainfather conical fermenter

The new Grainfather conical fermenter (with optional glycol chiller) looks quite interesting-with the dual tap and temperature controller works out the same price as a 52 litre chronical SS Brewmaster edition,not sure about the build quality compared to the SS though-having said that i took delivery...

Re: New Braumeister Owner Questions

I always do, but according to Speidels manual on page 15-and quoted
This process is known
as “sparging” (process not essential). This is called sparging and is performed by
pouring water at 78°C (max 78°C – do not use boiling water) :D

Re: New Braumeister Owner Questions

I thought the whole point of the Braumeister system is you don't have to sparge? :mrgreen:

Re: Braumeister firmware update

I have updated my machines to 1.1.24d 120117 version firmware I still cannot get mine to connect properly even within 1 metre of the router! I will remove the password from my router and try again- The only use I can find for this module is to update the firmware on my Braumeister machines- The Grai...

New Grainfather Controller

Just received (yesterday) and fitted the new Grainfather Connect Controller a very simple swap out procedure-see photos, :D the Bluetooth app connected straight away (unlike my Braumeister machines with the wireless module which is next to useless! :wall )-you can switch the pump and heater on and o...
