The Grainfather - Brewing System with New Connect Control Box
This is part of a suite of other stainless steel offerings, incorporating a mash tun, fermenter, conical fermenter, glycol chiller, kegerator with kegs & dedicated web-site - see associated products below.
Short of time or space? Then consider this little gem - in our opinion the superior All Grain Stainless set up & good value for money.
This is a fully integrated HLT/Masher/Boiler/Cool designed by brewers for brewers.
You'll need a supply of sparge water - see associated products, below.
It has the additional ability to do stepped mashes for Continental type beers.
Made from enduring 304 Stainless Steel it has a user friendly manual & builds on the manufacturers experience in distilling equipment.
It'll probably take a little while to mind map it, but once familiarity sets in you should be churning out those brews in no time - allow 4 hours from grain to fermenter.
This is electrically powered & designed to be used in doors & as there is less equipment to use, cleaning and storing is simplified.
No need for burners, or hot plates.
Just plug & play, 30 L (8 US Gal) capacity.
Pack everything back into itself for easy storage after use.
The built in element provides even heating across the base, simply enter the exact temperature for your mash.
Value for money & in our opinion worth the extra money over its rivals in terms of stability & predictability.
Origin NZ, utilising the distilling carcass.
There is a tempered glass lid for greater heating efficiencies before, and during the mashing stage.
12 months manufacturers warranty.
Put the hops in a bag or the associated spider below & have an additional heat source for the sparge water.
When re-circulating the wort or sparging it is highly recommended that the wort or liquor feed is placed over the plate and not directly into the central pipe.
Whirl-pooling the wort with a stir after the boil & letting the wort rest for 10 mins prior to pump out - to maximise the pump filter efficiency.
Occasionally there can be minor denting (not affecting the performance) on the boiler carcass resulting from the position of the internal grain basket lugs.
Both UK and EU versions are available, European customers living outside the UK will need to select the EU version.
