Description

The Braumeister is an all-in-one, electric all-grain brewing system that will ship to you free of charge from MoreBeer!. Made by our long time business associate Speidel of Germany these systems are imported and supported in USA by MoreBeer!. 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.

The Braumeister Plus models have been further improved with a welded jacket, eliminating the need for a separate wort chiller.  These jackets have 1" male threading, and aside from cooling, also serve as additional insulation to help you during heating.  A Dump Valve tap has been added to the base of the unit to make emptying and cleaning that much easier as well.

New 2015 Model
On top of all the features that Braumeisters are known and loved for, 2015 has brought an update to the user interface on these units. The new control panel showcases a large LED screen, allowing for easier recipe viewing and manipulation, as well as a memory bank to actually store recipes for future brews. Speidel has also been planning for the future with these new control panels.  Aside from immediate benefits, there is hardware to support WiFi control and other functionality that will be released as software updates to existing units. 

The Braumeister Control Module is available now, and when purchased, will upgrade your Generation 2 Braumeister to be controllable over the Wifi network!

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. Based on the results of lagers we have brewed on this machine MoreBeer! agrees.

Walking Through the Brew Process
On Brew Day you are going to assemble your Braumeister with the mash tub and bottom screen. You will fill the unit with filtered water to a notch on the center post - easy. The controller reads in °C, and you can set it to different temperatures you wish to reach. Advice is given in the manual. When your water is the correct temperature a beep alerts you to add grain. Stir in your grain, lock down the top screen (so now there is a screen on the bottom and the top) and start the mash. During the mash wort is constantly recirculated through the grain bed from the bottom up, reverse of most typical systems. The liquid wort flows up through the mash and then cascades down between the mash tub and the outer wall of the Braumeister. There it is collected by the pump and pushed back through the mash. When the mash is complete, another beep will alert you to remove the entire Mash Tub, which sets on top of the Braumeister to drain for a period of time. At this point you can choose to rinse the Mash with hot water or to just add water directly the wort. Push another button and the boil starts. You program the length of the boil. When the boil stops insert your wort chiller and cool.

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.


Technical Specifications for 20L Braumeister:

  • These units require a 220/230v connection. You should plan on hiring an electrician to install the proper socket and to wire on the appropriate plug. 
  • Produces 23 L of Wort, which is about 20L finished beer
  • 2015 Controllers can store up to ten recipes for easy rebrewing!

I've seen reviews that claim the jacket chiller is ineffective. Is this true?
Edward on Feb 11, 2019
BEST ANSWER: to go from boil to 17C it takes approx. 30 minutes, plate chiller is faster but the Brau has those great Gardenia fittings and is 100% sterile... I LOVE IT! I bought my first Brau 50 liter in 12/2011 I wish I had bought the Brau + 50 liter this time and still might... the Brau makes the best small batch beer on the market... maybe a traditional mash for Brit ales might be better than the brau… love my 20L + you will not be disappointed... the Brau makes the clearest beer of any type of system I have used... we tried Colorado Brewing Systems single vessel system... can't compare to the Brau… if you want to do step mashes the Brau is un-paralleled! Satisfaction level 150% Thanks Tim
I'm curious if this model actually needs the white insulating jacket that is sold separately? I know it is for the BM20 original but is it needed with this built in jacketed version?
Dan Blum on Mar 6, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hi Dan - The jacket will guarantee mash temps, and will assist in bringing about a rolling boil. - TW
