Definately a cool idea - still prefer my braumeister in terms of process. Would love to see how you get the spent grains out of the top part when it's that high, unless I've misread how it's meant to work. It's hard enough getting a 10 gallon mash out of braumeister and it's only half that height I think. Anyone actually used one before?

John Blichmann lives not far from Indianapolis, and my LHBS often has his wares on display. I'll take a look the next time I'm in there (should be later this week), and if they have it, report back with details.

Huh. At the 2012 NHC I randomly ended up hanging out with the Blichmann guys for all of Friday. They picked my brain for market research, took me to dinner, and we all roamed around Club Night together.

When they asked why I didn't own more Blichmann products (I only have the Beer Gun), I told them that I lived in an apartment and they didn't have any compact brewing systems for someone with my space requirements. I told them that it needed to roll away into a closet and be able to brew on a tiny deck if it was propane. Looks like they certainly delivered!  ;D

I am a big fan of the quality of Blichmann products.  I own 2 30g kettles, saving for a 55g kettle, a therminator and the beergun.  Their items are well made with quality craftsmanship.  That being said this items are VERY expensive compared to other things on the market.   If you have the extra cash and want something Shiny and ready to go, this will be for you.

I believe you can just lift it right off.  Maybe scoop out some of the grain first if it's too heavy.  All in all it doesn't look to be too tall.  I've only seen pictures and haven't seen one in action yet.  But, I'm heavily considering going with this in the electric version when it's released.

I wish they would give you more info about this system. It says it is like a BIAB system. So does that mean it is "no sparge"? Does that mean you can not vorlauf? I like the built in RIMS - does that mean there is a coil in the BK? And then I assume that can be used as an IC during cooling?

If it does have a built in coil that BK is gonna be kinda sucky to clean.

I'm assuming that the coil would not be built in. Shouldn't be a problem to clean. I'm also assuming that since you can RIMS you will also vorlauf. I'll also make the assumption that you should be able to do a batch sparge if you don't want to do a "no sparge" and even set up a fly sparge arm if you want without too much hassle.

Looking forward to checking out the system in GR this June.
