Speidel 20 litre Braumeister PLUS brewing system - 93563

The Speidel Braumeister is a compact, self-contained brewing system which allows you to make any type of beer – English ales, lagers, ‘Blonde’ beers, wheat beers – anything! It has fully automatic, programmable temperature and time functions, and an integral pump. The accurate, automatic controls give you good, consistent results, and reliable replication. The control of this 20 litre model features a colour screen, and it can store up to 10 recipes.

The Braumeister combines a hot liquor tank, mash tun and copper in one compact vessel. All models contain powerful elements for fast heating, and a pump. The full features are listed below, or you can download Speidel's latest Braumeister brochure here[10MB].

This new Braumeister PLUS model is just like the original Braumeisters, but comes with a welded-on stainless steel double jacket for cooling, so you don't need an additional Wort Cooler. It also has an additional outlet tap mounted on to the tank bottom for emptying waste water, making cleaning easier.

'The freedom of choice and total control of the entire process is what puts this system above the rest. With the brewer able to select malts and adjuncts, mashing profile, boiling and hopping regimes, as well as downstream fermentation, this system allows the brewer to pretty much brew any beer style (and create their own!).'Brewer & Distiller International, April 2015

'The precise nature of the system and ease of repeatability mean that such a system is perfect for small and large breweries as well as home brewers. Many smaller breweries use several 50L systems as their brew house systems, while larger breweries use the Braumeister to create and adjust new recipes before scaling up. A 2hL and 5hL system ... are available for larger-scale operations.' Brewer & Distiller International, March 2015

The 20 litre Braumeister PLUS is ideal for home brewers and breweries developing new beers.

  • Extremely simple to use – takes the mystery out of brewing!
  • Use to make any type of beer/ale
  • Hot liquor tank, mash tun & copper in one compact vessel!
  • Auto programmable temperature & time functions
  • Reliable replication of results
  • Welded on double stainless steel jacket for wort cooling
  • Additional outlet tap for emptying the waste water to make cleaning easier

The Braumeister PLUS can be programmed by the brewer according to the recipe for the beer being brewed, with the following programmable phases:

  1. Mashing the wort
  2. Protein phase
  3. Maltose phase
  4. Saccharification phase
  5. Hop boiling

At each stage the precise temperature and time can be set and the Braumeister PLUS gives appropriate prompts to the user at each stage. After hop boiling the wort can be cooled using the welded on double stainless steel jacket. Simply connect to a hose and flow cool water through the jacket. The beer then needs to be transferred to a fermenter for fermentation.

Brewing smaller batches: An optional malt pipe shortener is available to brew 10 litre batches in this unit, however, please note that because of the positioning of the cooling jacket, the jacket will not be able to sufficiently cool this small quantity of wort. For cooling this small quantity of wort, the Wort Cooler will be required.

Programming

The Braumeister program is set up with 2 standard brewing recipes with specific time and temperature values for the different phases of brewing. You can program your own recipes (10 maximum) via the control panel. Use the control panel to select the recipe you want to use. The control system will run through the brewing phases automatically and will guide you through the various steps you need to take at the relevant times. [Please note, a manual operation mode is also available.]

Mashing

Depending on the recipe and process, pour water in and it will be heated to the temperature set on the program (typically 38 °C). When prompted insert the malt pipe with the sieve inserts and pour the malt in. Place the other sieve insert on top and screw the maltpipe top-bar securely in place with the wingnut.

Mashing & brewing

The pump will switch on. As the wort is circulated, the starch is extracted from the malt. The Braumeister will then run through the four brewing phases (Protein Rest; Maltose Rest; Sugar Rest 1; Sugar Rest 2).

Lautering

After the four phases have been run through, a warning tone sounds. The lautering process is easily and quickly done by removing the malt pipe: place the malt pipe's resting bracket on top of the Braumeister; lift the malt pipe using the lifting bracket and rest it on the bracket via the lower support bolts extruding from the malt pipe. Allow the malt pipe to drain a few minutes. If necessary you can pour water through the malt (sparge) to achieve a better yield. Remove the malt pipe.

Hop Boiling

The Braumeister will prompt you to add hops and will then start the hop boiling stage which must be carried out with the lid off. The wort is boiled for 80 minutes and more hop batches can be added (the program allows for up to 3 batches). The original gravity can be finally adjusted by adding or removing water. The central spindle in the Braumeister serves as a level meter. At the end of the boiling phase, a warning tone sounds again.

Fermenting & Maturing

After boiling, brewing is complete. Cool the wort to the fermentation temperature by connecting your cold water supply and drain hose the cooling jacket, and running your cold water through the jacket. When finished, drain the wort via the Braumeister tap into a sterilised fermenter, mix in yeast and ferment.

After several weeks storage in bottles or in a maturing vessel, the beer will be ready to drink.
