Hi all

Been a long time since I was here and I'm sure this might have been posted but CBF searching. I have looked through Google and AHB previously but couldn't find if anyone had managed it.

I have recently moved into a rental and don't see myself being here long term. I have a 50 lt Braumeister and don't want to spend the coin on someone else's house to get 15 amp power.

Can I get a 4kW genset and run the BM off that?I have found one that runs 3.5kW continuous. The BM pulls a bit over 3kW so should work. I did read (not on here) that someone tried it but the genset kept cutting out. I am curious if anyone has managed it.
