Hi all
Thought i'd share my braumeister clone build, big thanks to Matho, Bonj and all others for providing the info and inspiration.
My aim was to replicate the 20litre model but with better pump and element, and ive also come up with a whirlpool attatchment which in testing looks to be promising.

Ive used a 42l Bayou Pot from Amazon, 3000w element and a March PL809 HS-C pump.

Bottom cover is held on by one latch and is easily removed

The pot is held onto the frame by the center rod and the plumbing connections, pump can be removed via the two unions and two bolts holding bracket to frame. Used 1/2 inch skim fittng for outlet and 3/4 for the inlet, thermowell was turned up at work. All cables glanded into controller as will need a 15A outlet for the 3000w element.

Where did you get the controller? Have you any information on it?

You have inspired me to try something like this, but the controller, leaves me stumped

Thank you

It looks like you have spared NO expense :) I REALLY LIKE IT!

Does it work with a grainbill?

You could probably assist other by listing where you got your components such as perf stainless, the pipes and the fittings...
