gday Brew-Mates,

I just thought, that some people are interested to see how a german homebrewerie looks like.

well, here some pics of my equipment:

first the source of all pleasure, the malt:



then the maltmill:



the mashpott:



inside the mashpott:







the Wort-Pump:



boiling the wort with this equipment, 86Litres each:



for doing the whirlpool, I made a ring of copper with a silicon-tube:



while whirlpooling, looks like this:



will be continued...

this motor is from a driving-unit of a garage-door:



just made a big hole in the middle of the lid and attach the motor.
the stirrer is made by stainless-steel.
Im using a frequency-controller to control the speed of the stirrer.

thats a very old coffee-mill, from the 1950s.
befor I was using this one, but I was not satisfied:



my old coffeemill is doing a very good job, 10kg malt in a few minutes.

Cheers

How long did it take for you to get all the parts of this setup?
[post="84738"][/post]​
well, I got the Idea to brew my own beer whilst a holiday-stay in Australia.
I met some nice people there who teached me how to do.
Then took a Can of Coopers Lager with me back home.
That time I didnt know anything about homebrewing.

Back home, I searched the Internet for informations about homebrewing and found a very nice brewboard right here in Germany. I started buying books about homebrewing and then I made a plan.

It tooks me almost one year to get all the equipment Im using right now.
Most of things Im using is not supposed to be a brewing-gear.
I got stuck of this matter now :)

Prost

What is the best german brewboard you have found.
I use to read a few of the belgium ones using google translator, even the eye candy communicates ideas.

Just assessing and finding a good brew board in another language is the hassle. But I always have a look using a translation tool on the web, the most bizzare site I found was a chinese brewing site, translation was not too great, but it seems they have yeast plating down pat.

I was told recently that homebrewing in Germany was illegal?
Obviously it is a myth?
Nice set-up by the way
cheers

Thanks Brizzybrew.
