UK guy here - I’ve bought a BZ 3.1.1 and I’m still puzzling it out before my first attempt at a brew (downloaded instructions, youtube and google). I think I’ve got it covered (in theory! at least I’ll be brave enough to start…) but I have one question: it says on the robobrew website - for an older version - factor in x litres of dead space between tap and bottom. It says you can tilt, but you’ll get the crap if you do, so best to calculate 3 litres per kilo then add x litres for deadspace.
2 questions (well, 3 really):
- I’m going to use the no-chill cube method and fill the cube(s) using the pump. I assume that is ok? i.e. to run boiling wort thru the pump? Second question - do I still need to factor in dead space, using the pump, or will the pump extract all the wort? And last question, I saw a video on Youtube which said you need to add 6 litres for the BZ 3.1.1 (on top of 3 litres per kilo) otherwise you may get a stuck mash, clogged pump. True?
Any help gratefully received!
