I'm also interested in how small the smallest amount of wort is possible with the 50L with standard malt pipe.

I believe the short malt pipe does 20L batches, but I'm curious to know how little liquid is required to create a sufficient flow for mashing. Perhaps 30L batches might be possible?

I asked the same question on another forum from a user and this was his response:

You can make a 5gal batch but the malpipe has to have at least 8-9kg of malt in it so the beer will be strong. You could buy a smaller maltpipe for the 50l. I did but have only used it once..

Had a great day at MHB on tuesday, Mark had the Braumester warmed up and ready, the process was without doubt the simplest least stressful brew I have ever done, I chose a simple Hefe for the demo brew the quality of the braumeister was evident at all times, the krauts always did build a better tank, the huge heating coil raising temps at amazing rates and by design even starting a thermal whirlpool effect. all in all while no system is going to be perfect for every possible brew, this puppy covers enough bases competently to be the answer to my needs. As for Mark and his shambolic emporium of brewing pleasure, you would not find a nicer man, or a more magical shop, there is brewing paraphanalia every where, and I mean everywhere, but Mark in his affable way knows where every bit of brewing equipment is to be found. What really struck me was how Mark was so generous with his wealth of knowledge, I am more accustomed to dealing with winemakers (if you change a few letters in winemaker you get wanker) who are as mean as cats bums when it comes to sharing knowledge, Mark was the exact opposite, he freely shared his knowledge in a way that reassured me and de mystified some long held misconceptions,
I was pleased to confirm an order for my 50l Braumeister at the end of the day. I have no affiliation with MHB bar that I am a happy customer, but would have no hesitation in recommending them, My twelve hour round trip was rewarded with a great experience.

I actually tried some of the leftover wort from your Hefe. Very nice ;-)
One day I might call a Braumeister my own as well... those will be happy days, hehe.
Let us know how you go with the restaurant in-house brewery!

$3k? That's a very expensive Urn!

If you're forking out that dough, why not aim higher :D ? When for twice that you can grab one of these babies:
SabcoBrewMagic for just a few dollars more

Sam Caligione (of Dogfish Head fame) pumped out many of his earlier brews on this one.

Why pay double for something that will only knock out the same batch size but takes up twice the space? Sorry, but I don't see it as aiming higher at all...

Agreed, I would prefer a Braumeister over the Sabco any day. Each to their own I guess.

+1.My old 2 tier is taking up 1/2 my garden shed...just cant quite let it go....yet.

The HLT would be good for someone to use for BIAB as its a 40lt S/S electric wash copper.

Maybe soon will just have to let go and put it all up for sale.

I think it would knock out less, the brewmister knocks out a true 50l if you use it properly. I think with a cut down keg you would be lucky to get 40l at knock out.

And surely it'd use up 3x the space?

3x the space, twice the price, for 20% less beer...

Yeah, awesome.

But it does look more like your standard HERMS/RIMS Brew Porn.

Frankly I prefer the german example ;)
