Whether light or dark, top or bottom fermented, wheat or pils, with the Klarstein Maischfest mash tank, self-brewed is the right way to go. Even beginners can make refreshingly delicious self-made home brews!
Whether you are a beginner or an experienced hobby brewer, the Klarstein Maischfest mash kettle provides a simple, 5-piece complete package for the application of the brew mash. Up to 25 litres of brewing material can be boiled in the large stainless steel boiler. A clear touch panel with an LCD display can be used to manually set the temperature, cooking time and power manually. Two power levels are available: 1500W for keeping warm and 3000W for boiling the mash. The LCD display always shows the exact temperature currently in the boiler.
Particularly practical is the range of accessories offered by the Klarstein Maischfest beer brewer, which help in the process in various ways: the filter insert and the drip ring make it easy to remove the spent grains from the brew without losing any beer. The cooling coil also cools down the mash at lightning speed - thanks to the hollow tube, even water-cooled. With the drain tap, transfer to the fermentation tank is easy. All parts are made of 304 stainless steel. This means that no metal tastes get into the beer and that the kettle can be easily cleaned after use.
Fresh beer from your own home brewery? It couldn’t be easier: with the Klarstein Maischfest mash kettle, every hobby brewer can easily achieve master brewing quality.

Not bad but a few flaws
some improvements/mods needed
*1st off 35lt is an odd brew size, so if you are following recipes which as standard are either 19l or 23l you have to do some maths to get everything to work out to 35l basically times everything by 1.5. a 45l or 50 lt would be better,
*the grain basket is absolutely useless, it clogs up and quite large chunks can pass through the holes, you really need a separate grain bag or a different grain basket
*the controller... useless! you'd honestly be better off if it was less complicated. e.g., desired temp and that's it, its a faff trying to set a basic temperature. you have to set times as well before it starts up, it literally should have been a up and down adjustment for temp and that's it.
also the screen being at the bottom is useless, having to get on your knees to check temp, and to top of the silliness of the controller the back light turns off, so you have to push a few buttons so it lights up and you can see the screen
*overheat safety cut out. (might have been just my unit) but it just kept cutting out and i couldn't even keep a boil up, on the 3000w setting id get 10seconds before it tripped at about 95'C on the 1500w setting id get about a minute before id have to reset it, which id have to do by leaning the mash tun over and reaching underneath to push the reset, ive subsequently taken the bottom off and bypassed the overheat cut-out switch
pants! took about 25mins to cool down the wort to pitching temp. you'll need to upgrade to a much larger coil
*level glass... yep it doesn't have one, it really needs one, with their silly grain basket holder ring you cant see into the wort to see the level when sparging
a recirculating pump
overheat safety switch bypass
mesh screen or grain bag for grain basket
plate cooler or decent immersion chiller
the good bit , the temps are accurate, it gets to the boil quickly, and can hold the right temp whilst sparging
and this unit is cheap, £200 with the discount code, compared to £430 for the Brauheld Pro Mash Kettle
which has most of the issues sorted out but still doesn't have a sight glass.
is this unit worth buying?? yes and no.
if you have the budget step up to a 45 or 50l mash kettle
if not you can easily work around the flaws of this unit.
