Features

All 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 dual element so that the correct power can be used depending on what stage of the brewing process you are at. A 400 watt element is used during the mashing process, to keep temperature stable, even and consistent across the base to minimize risk of scorching.

A second 1600 watt element can be switched up to ramp quickly up to boil after the mash.

Control Box:

The temperature controller allows you to dial in your exact temperature during the mash. A temperature probe is fitted into the bottom of the Grainfather, and the constant recirculating helps to ensure accurate temperature control.

It also features two switches, which control both the pump and element. The boil switch will override any temperature input to quickly get the wort up to a rolling boil.

The control box is easily removable for cleaning.

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 into 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 9.9 lb – 20 lb of grain. The fitted perforated plates and telescopic tubing allow you to easily adjust the size of the grain basket to suit the size of grain bill.

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 grains 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.

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 the plastic 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.

6 US Gal of wort can be cooled in as little as 20 minutes.

Support:

The Grainfather is fully supported around the world by a fantastic support team who love brewing just as much as you do. Our support team are there for any technical enquiries on brewing or how the Grainfather works, as well as general customer service enquiries.

All Grainfather’s come with a 12 month warranty

Alembic Dome and Copper Condenser:

Alembic Dome and CondenserThe large copper surface area of this dome top acts as a catalyst with the vapor in the still and helps enhance and concentrate the flavors and aromas as well as remove unwanted sulfur compounds. This produces a smoother, richer, sweeter tasting spirit.

Note: It may not be legal in your area to distill alcohol, but you can still use this for extracting essential oils or for distilling water. Know before you buy.
