  • Blichmann 5bbl MLT question

    We are looking to get a new 5bbl MLT from Blichmann. We currently have the "old model" and it seems that we should be able to work with the system we have with minor modifications. The biggest hurdle I have is that we have a 2.5in triclamp fitting on it that is used for our grist hydrator. The new MLT does not have that fitting. I think that the owners may have ad it welded in when they bought the system. My question is, has anyone run into this situation and what is the solution you have when it comes to mashing in on this type of system?

    Do I forgo the grist hydrator completely? The new MLT has better rakes and it seems it may be ok with us just using a flexible hose to guide the grain in.
    Or so I make the effort to have a fitting welded in for the grist hydrator?

    Thanks for the input!
