Braumeister Electric Brewing Systems
The Braumeister is an all-in-one, electric all-grain brewing system that will ship to you free of charge from Barley and Vine! Made by our long time business associate Speidel of Germany. The Braumeister features an automation and ease of use that is unparalleled in brewing all-grain beer at home. Plus we love the quality of beer produced on these machines.
Advantages of the Braumeister
First the system is small in footprint and powered by electricity allowing you to brew inside, in a confined space, without the fear of carbon monoxide gas from a flame source. Secondly this unit is very easy to use as you mash the grain and then boil the wort in the same vessel. We also love the automation and control. Before you brew you set the controller with the different temperatures you wish to attain (advice is given on what to set) and the built in heating element and pump do the rest. The Braumeister is especially ideal for step-mashing, which many brewers think is the preferred way to brew lager beers.
What About Efficiency? This was our main question because with the Braumeister you are skipping a traditional sparge. The continual recirculation of wort during the mash results in a satisfactory efficiency.
Disadvantages of the Braumeister You need to have a source of 220v power(and the ability to adapt the European plug to North American 220v, we recommend a certified electrician). If you have that then using electricity can become an advantage. Because of size constraints of the mash tub the largest starting gravity beer you can brew is between 1.060 to 1.065. You can always add DME to the boil for an occasional big beer brew.
Buy a Braumeister for the following reasons:
Space is concern You want to brew "all-grain" inside your house and have access to 220v Simplicity and ease-of-use is important You are particularly interested in Lager Beers and want to step mash You don't make a lot of high-gravity beers, and are willing to add a little DME when you do.
