The malt pipe has latches that folds out when you lift it, so you can use both your hands for lifting.
Sparging is done without tubes or pipes outside the tank. A sparge tube installed on the outside of the centre pipe follows the malt pipe when lifted also lifting the wort spreading device. This makes it very easy to sparge from a separate tank without making a mess.
After brewing with the B40pro, you never have to turn it upside down for cleaning. The centre pipe is removed easily, and you can easily clean the unit, and all the trub will be drained directly to a bucket or the drains. Use the included circulation device as a CIP solution to save time and cleaning chemicals.
The system has two digital temperature sensors – one in the bottom of the tank and one before the pump. The maximum static offset is ±0,5°C. The sensors can be individually calibrated for maximum accuracy. They have an accuracy of 0.1°C. It’s also possible to connect a third sensor (accessory) to monitor the temperature of the wort returning from the counter flow cooler, so you can pump directly to the fermenter when the temperature is right.
With powerful heating elements combining over 3.2kW (230V) of power, heating the water or wort is very fast. During the boil, the PID system is deactivated and you can adjust the power output to achieve the perfect rolling boil. You can also adjust the maximum current of each mains input, to 10, 13, 15 and 16 Amps, to make sure you never blow a fuse.
All ports are 34mm Tri-Clamp fittings for maximum flexibility without leaks. As standard the system is shipped with one 3-way valve. All silicone tubes are 16x25mm food grade silicone.
The control system is custom developed and features high quality electronics. The software is constantly being improved with new features. It is updated via WiFi.

B40pro and B80pro are designed for maximum flexibility. There are many ways of using the system based on personal preference, what kind of accessories you have and your your brewing area is set up. Below, we will explain the principles of the system and the possibilities it gives you. We recommend watching the demo video to get an overview on how the system works.
The tank and malt pipe is built from SS304 stainless steel with a thickness of 1.0.mm All outlets and ports on the tanks and valves are 34mm Tri-Clamp for maximum flexibility. The flanges and steel parts are cast in SS304 stainless steel, and CNC machined. The pump features a 24V brushless motor, it’s quiet and powerful and the speed is controlled from the touch-screen. All tubes are 16x25mm food grade high quality silicone, with high transparency. The entire system is designed and built to withstand rough use and many parts are manufactured by hand.
