Advanced Homebrew Systems
From MoreBeer.com

Advanced homebrew systems, sometimes called Brew Sculptures, are every homebrewer's dream. We all start out on simple systems and either build our own upgrades or purchase systems from online merchants such as MoreBeer.com. MoreBeer.com has some of the most advanced systems on the market today. Take a look at some of their advanced homebrew systems below:

B3-500 5 Gallon Gravity System from More Beer

A joy to use! We call this advanced homebrew system a Gravity Bre#link_807501w Sculpture because there are no pumps involved as the flow of liquid is gravity driven all the way into the fermenter. This system comes with 8 gallon kettles, but the frame is designed for 8 or 15 gallon heavy duty kettles, in case you want to upgrade to larger kettles at a later date. The burner is designed to hold any kettle diameter over 11 inches and height up to 15 inches.

Pros And Cons Versus other Advanced Homebrew Systems- Advantages: Ease of use. These system are very simple to operate. A huge benefit of this system is its size. The foot print is 2' x 3' so it will fit almost anywhere. The height of the Mashtun (where grain gets stirred in) is low so no ladders or steps are needed. Does not require a pump so you can brew without needing an electrical source. Limitations: Not available for a 20 gallon system. Doesn't come with a pump so it isn't ideal for doing recirculation mashes. Does not allow for the control or flexibility the Digital Packages can offer.

Base Dimensions: 54" Tall 25" Deep 36" Long

Tippy Dump BrewSculpture™ V4

Famous for its innovative tipping Mash Tun, the Tippy-Dump BrewSculpture™ allows you to easily dump spent grain after mashing.  Place a garbage can on the built-in step, tip the mashtun and your done… no heavy lifting or scooping necessary! Inspired by professional brewpub brewhouses, which are designed to fit in tight spaces, the mashtun is placed directly over the hot liquor tank. This not only saves space but also allows for heat coming off the hot-liquor tank to help keep the mashtun warm during the mash.

In Brew Sculpture Version 4 we have added a Tippy Disc that is welded directly to the kettle. This allows for the mashtun to be locked in when vertical and then to be rotated and locked in at different angles as you empty and clean the mashtun. The Tippy Dump system includes a built in flip-down stainless step giving you easy access to see into the mashtun. Key Features of Tippy-Dump BrewSculptures™ Made in USA in the MoreBeer!

The center draw outlet with quick disconnect is locked in during mashing but easily disconnects for cleaning. The mash screen has a very low volume of base water under the screen to aid with efficiency and mash consistency. The perforated stainless mash screen is reinforced for use with pump recirculation and includes a silicone gasket to make a perfect seal with the kettle wall. Internally etched volume markers make mash water additions super easy.Boil Kettle includes innovative Whirlpool maker for leaving hops and trub behind. Volume markers are etched on the inside so you know exactly how much wort you have at all times.

Braumeister 10L 20L and 50LBraumeister 10L 20L and 50L

Braumeister V2 - 50 L

The Braumeister is an all-in-one, electric all-grain advanced homebrewing 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.

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. 

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.

Technical Specifications for 50L Braumeister:

  • Braumeisters require a 230 v connection and you should plan to have an electrician install a socket and then wire on the appropriate plug
  • Produces 53 L/14 Gal of Wort resulting in about 50L/13 Gal of finished beer
  • 53 lbs
  • 3200 Watt built in heating capacity
  • 2 x 23 Watt pump
  • 230V (protection at least 16 amp), 50-60Hz
  • 27.5 inches tall
  • 19.75 inches in diameter
  • 26.45 lb max qty of malt
  • Max Fill Level = 55 L (Upper Marking on Center Rod)

Buy a Braumeister for the following reasons:

  • Space is concern
  • You want to brew "all-grain" inside your house and have access to 230 v
  • 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.
