Grainfather Connect is your all in one grain brewing system to make beer from grain

The sleek look, user friendly, intuitive design, and innovative features, make this your perfect brewing companion for both experienced and beginner all grain brewers.

 It is made from high quality 304 grade stainless steel with a 30L capacity, designed to make up to 23L of beer from one brew. 



Features



- Electric
: The Grainfather is electrically powered and designed to be used indoors. No need for burners, or hot plates, just plug in and go! It is fitted with a controlled heating element so that the correct power can be used depending on what stage of the brewing process you are at. A gentler heat is used at certain stages for accurate temperature control and and to minimise the risk of scorching and after the mash it can also ramp up the heat quickly for when more vigorous heating is required. Heating from mash to boil takes as little as 20 minutes.

- Control Box for Heat & Power Control: Use the Connect Control Box in conjunction with the Connect App and Grainfather Brewing Community for the ultimate brewing experience. Create your recipes on the Grainfather Brewing Community and then sync these recipes with the Connect app. The control box has Bluetooth connection to your mobile device so it can be controlled remotely. This allows you to multitask or simply relax while brewing and then be alerted when to return to your next step. Features:

  • PID algorithm works in conjunction with a triac for more stable heating and so you can control power output
  • Programmable step mashing
  • Delayed heating - fill your Grainfather with water the night before and wake up to your water at strike temperature ready for brewing straight away
  • Change between celsius and fahrenheit easily
  • Waterproof graphic display
  • Use in manual mode or with app

- Grainfather Connect App for Automation 

  • Grainfather Grain Kit recipes provided in the app
  • Ability to import recipes (Beer XML files) - NOTE: iOS9 and higher
  • Set your own boil temperature (for different altitudes)
  • Change between celsius and fahreheit easily
  • Grainfather calculators provided in app
  • Create recipes on the Grainfather Brewing Community and then sync these with the Connect App to brew

- Pump: A 6 Watt, 1,800 RPM magnetic powered pump has been fitted to recirculate the wort through the grain bed for maximum brewing efficiencies. This is also used during the cooling stage to pump hot wort through the wort chiller. The pump also makes the cleaning process quick and easy by pumping the cleaning detergent through all the pipe work. The magnetic drive pump has been selected after rigorous testing of multiple pump styles to ensure it meets the tough demands required of continuous brewing. The pump is concealed by a stainless pump cover, which is easy to pop open, giving you direct access. A pump filter is fitted inside the Grainfather to prevent hops and stray grain from entering the pump or pipework, keeping the wort clear while also preventing any blockages. 



- Grain Basket
: A stainless steel expandable grain basket allows you to brew with anything from 4.5 – 9 kg of grain. The fitted perforated plates and telescopic pipework allow you to easily adjust the size of the grain basket to suit the size of grain bill. Fit the Micro Pipework (sold separately) for grain bills below 4.5 kg. When ready for sparging, a basket lifting handle is then inserted into the grain basket to lift it up, out of the wort. A 45 degree turn then allows the grain basket’s feet to rest on the specially designed support ring to allow the grain basket to drain while you can batch sparge over the top. A Sparge Water Heater can be purchased additionally to heat your water to the specific temperature required.



- Counter Flow Wort Chiller
: A counter flow wort chiller has two connection points. One side is connected to the Grainfather, while the other is connected to the cold tap water. The hot wort is then pumped through copper inner coil while the cold water is pumped through the outer in the opposite direction, providing instant cooling and heat exchange. The cooled wort can then be pumped directly into your clean, sterile fermenter. This reduces the chance of contamination as nothing is inserted in the wort, and it is only passing through the wort chiller one single time, going straight to the sterile fermenter where the yeast is added.

 23 L of wort can be cooled in as little as 20 minutes. The cooled wort temperature will be cooled to approximately 5 degrees above whatever your tap water temperature is.

Grainftering is easy

Have just completed a whisky mash using the Grainfather, after watching a number of youtube clips then setting up for a brew. No problems were encountered The Grainfather competed each step as expected with the process taking 4.5 hours from initial water heat up to cleaning with the wash into the fermenter The unit when purchased arrived within 48 hours with the unit already assembled ready to go

Grainfather Brewing System

This is a great system, does all the things I need in a small space with excellent controls. I'm looking forward to creating and experimenting. It has initiated me to buy the conical fermenter as well. Very early day's and looking to expand over time. I would like to get a grain mill and develop my own beer recipes expand the system to kegging. All up the Grainfather kit is an excellent product.
