Looking to make the move to all grain brewing with a small footprint? The GrainFather is an all in one Brewing System with a hefty feature set and an economical price tag. The GrainFather has a small footprint, but will brew five gallons of beer from all grain using 220V power. Mashing takes place in the inner Stainless basket, and recirculates through the perforated plate (also SS!), resulting in great efficiency and clarity. This unit also includes a counterflow chiller for cooling wort post boil.
Use the Connect Control Box in conjunction with the Connect App (and the recipe creator coming soon) for the ultimate brewing experience. 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.
