Finally getting time to commission and play with my new BM50. There's very little info about the new Plus/2021 model online so hopefully this thread becomes a useful resource.
Why did I buy a new 50L Braumeister? Shiny brewing systems don't make better beer, they make better brew days. I started doing half batches on my BM20, which I've been using for over 9 years now, and I realised/confirmed, as suggested by some members on HBT, brewing systems work better at half capacity. It just seems to make brew day easier and less risky. Smaller (than designed for) volumes heated by more powerful elements saves time. It's safer to run at less than full capacity, with much less chance of a boil over, especially with something like a stout porter. Smaller volumes of boiling hot wort are quicker to cool, too. Less mess as well, so easier clean. I don't really have any plans to brew 50L/12G batches. Just standard 20L/6G batches and 33L batches for filling my Yorkshire square FV. Filling the Yorkshire square using a BM20 demands some effort on brew day with added risks when brewing above a system's intended capacity. I'll still get plenty of use out of my trusty BM20, though, e.g., half batches, sparge water, holding wort, etc. It adds so much flexibility to my new set up.
I'm turning my lab into a brew room, because I'm not doing enough lab work to keep the lab going.

One of the biggest benefits is not having to set up then pack away every brew day. As you can see, things are getting messy already. If I left the kitchen looking like this I would be in big trouble.
I'll finish this first post with an obligatory snap of unboxing watching paint dry.

Enough of that already.
