Some of the early ones have black elements rather than polished SS. They are actually better at heat transfer than the SS ones. Just make sure they are clean.I think you are safe with a second hand BM, just check out the elements, make sure they are still shiny.
Agree with MHB. I have a 3 year old BMv2 with over 70 brews done and Grainfather chiller & fermenters. I wish that my fermenter/chiller set up had the same level of quality as the BM. I use a boil setting of 103 at sea level to get a boil which is sufficient. I have had a neoprene cover but got fed up cleaning it and am back to bare SS now. The wireless addition isn't worth the cost and I'm tending to using manual settings anyway so the old V1 will provide all you want, provided it's in good nick. Good luck.Hi, would you guys buy a 8 year old v1 braumeister or a new grainfather connect at this point?
