The Grainfather is an all-inclusive all-grain brewing system. The system allows you to mash at high extract efficiency by utilizing a pump for easy recirculating of the wort through the mashing process. The grain bed is then easily raised out of the kettle to provide for sparging and draining of the grains. Your mash tun then becomes an electric boil kettle.
The mash temperature and boil are all controlled precisely with an electric heating element. The system comes with a digital temperature controller so you can adjust the temperature of your mash within a degree. This allows for step mashing.
The included pump allows for easy recirculating of your wort during the mash as well as allows for quick cooling at the end of the boil by allowing you to pump through the included counterflow chiller.
This whole 8-gallon system is extremely compact so it makes for easy indoor or outdoor brewing.

Item received in a timely manner. It was a breeze to use for my first lager. The link with my smart phone was a little buggy.
I'm now a couple brews in with the Grainfather and it has worked out perfect. I moved to this from a 3 tier gravity feed system with 10G coolers for the HLT and Mash Tun - this just makes the brew day much more simple and allows the focus to be on refining the process and duplicating results. No complaints. Adventures in Homebrewing shipped quickly, kept me up to date on the order, and were quick to answer a question I had along the way. Will purchase from them again.
I couldn't be happier with my purchase! I've brewed two batches and can't believe how much time and energy I saved during the brew day. I love the bluetooth connection to my phone that will give me reminders. The results were outstanding all around!!
I use to do tons of 1 Gallon BIAB batches but finally decided to take a step up to something that would allow me to do larger batches while maintaining temps. After a ton of research and watching a ton of YouTube Videos I settled on the Grainfather for the best bang for the buck. I have already brewed 10 batches in this beast. It allows for up to 6 gallons and as I am a bit of a mad scientist I brew 6 gallons and cut them into a 5 gallon batch with my primary yeast and a 1 gallon with a yeast I want to compare. This beast came in 3 large boxes and was packed so well I think a UPS or FedEx driver could have jumped on it without damaging it. I was actually shocked at how many and how large the boxes were. I must say it is easy to setup and easy to clean the majority of the equipment although somethings are a little harder to get to but the quality is the main reason I got it. So far a ladder has fallen on it (big dent which I pushed out) and another small dent (not sure how) but had I bought one of the more recent knock offs I'd probably had been up the creek without a paddle. This thing takes a little rough handling (pets and kids) and keeps rocking. The main reason I wanted a unit like this was to control my mashing temps better which at first I thought the temps were a little off but after buying a few thermometers and running some more tests I found that my lab thermometer was the issue not the GF. If you have the money and want to buy a quality single vessel brewing unit this is it! I would also buy a cheap 7 to 10 inch tablet if you don't already have one as I have to leave my current 7" tablet plugged in as the bluetooth seems to eat up the battery but it is nice to put the GF outside and get things started but manage it and get notifications sitting inside in the A/C. Extremely happy with my purchase.
