Mine came through the post without a scratch, better quality packaging than what the Chinese use, although the Chinese line their boxes with ply.weal, mine arrived ex Germany in 5 days via DHL, I hadn't told the wife I'd bought it!! The box was so good I've kept it haha...
I found it worked quite nicely when hosing out the trub.I’d love that model with the bottom tap
I was in the midst of an explosion, high pitched sounds I can no longer hear, that goes for the washing machine too. My wife has to tell me when it starts to beep. (The BM not the washing machine that's her department)Hi BM'ers, got a BM20 and recently it has lost it's sound, anybody came across this before? G&G are on the case and waiting for a response from Germany so thought I would put this out there in the meantime.
Any help appreciated.
Thinking on this some more, I believe you're meant to use all four in the BM, and the reason for the pump plugs on the inlet side is to restrict hop debrid/hot break etc from entering the pump. It'd act a bit like a raised pickup.it had two sets of pump plugs in it... and the picture shows this too...
Anyone know why? All I can think is its so that you can be mashing in one BM50, while you Vurt Poomp from another :-\
There are little etchings on the top of the device, you line those up and rotate until you find the pump “pins” and raise/drop into place. Then screw down.I would have thought they would have put up a video of how it will work, it still isn't clear to me what the purpose is. If the vessel is full of wort how can it be set up?
Looks like you are right razz, the 50 litre is using both pumps, I did wonder if there was a way of using one. That image looks different to this image.
In the other image it looks like a 'horse shoe bend.
I understand how it works, for the 20 litre the tube fits over the outlet only, the other plug is as stux suggested it is a raised pickup. Here is a pic of the 20 litre, and to be honest for a 20 litre I wouldn't be spending the money on it.OK, can someone who has used this help? It would appear that the pipe fits over the inlet and outlet (20L BM) with the two little plugs supplied. How does this then pull wort out of the BM? If it does, won't it suck all the trub from the bottom, which I try and filter out a bit normally through the tap? Lastly, any idea of the pump head height available with the tube supplied - 1m, 2m? (20L BM). I need convincing before paying around $200 for a bit of stainless pipe. Thanks.
Thanks both of you for the replies. The 20L kit photo answers the inlet question. I agree that it's probably not worth the money.My understanding is the 50L has 2 inlets and 2 outlets. The 50L wort pump device sits on the 2 outlets once all "pump plugs" are sitting in place (inlets and outlets). the 20L wort pump does not have the lower T piece with the bend, so only sits on the only 20L outlet
