The Grainfather’s simple to use
system is designed for craft beer lovers.
The all in one,
temperature controlled unit makes learning to brew the traditional way, easy,
regardless of whether you have any experience or not. There is no limit to the
types and styles of beer that can be made. From Pale Ales to Stouts, low
alcohol or high, it’s your time to get creative and make an exciting new brew
Mash, sparge, boil and cool all
in one unit, meaning there is less equipment to use, clean and store.
The Grainfather is electrically
powered and designed to be used in doors. No need for burners, or hot plates. Just
plug in and go!
30 L (8 US Gal) capacity.
Perfect for small spaces. Packs everything back into itself for easy storage
The built in element provides
even heating across the base. Dial in the exact temperature for your mash. Can
be used for both step mashing and single temperature mashing with very fast
ramp up between steps.
Tempered glass lid for greater
heating efficiencies before, and during the mashing stage.
The telescopic design system
incorporated into the grain basket allows you to control the ratio of grain to
water and keeps a consistent temperature throughout your grain bed. This also
makes it possible to mash a wide range of grain bills, from low gravity beers
all the way to high gravity.
Used to gently recirculate wort
through the grain during the mashing stage for better temperature control, sugar
extraction and optimal brewing efficiencies.
Pump filter, temperature control
unit, piping, mesh plates are all easily removed and taken apart to make clean
up as simple as possible after the brew day.
off the brew day
Getting to correct temperatures
faster, the all in one system, and easy clean up afterwards sheds hours off a
typical brew day. Brewing with the Grainfather takes approximately 4 hours.
1: Choose your recipe
Once you decide what you want
to brew, find a recipe with a “Grain Bill” which tells you exactly how much of
which grains and hops you need to buy.
Mashing is the process of
extracting all of the fermentable sugars and flavours from the crushed grain. Different
temperatures will be recommended depending on your recipe. Once you are ready
to brew, fill the Grainfather with water and place the lid on top. Dial in your
mashing temperature and set the Grainfather to
Mash and add the grains. During
the mash, the pump will recirculate the wort through the grains, to ensure even
temperature throughout. This maximises the extraction of sugars from the grain.
Sparge by pouring hot water
over the grain to release any remaining sugars.
Remove Grain Basket full of
grain. Switch the Grainfather to Boil using the temperature control dashboard.
Boil for the recommended time and add hops throughout the boil according to
Use the Grainfather Counter
Flow Wort Chiller to cool the wort down to 20oC (68oF) in under 20 minutes. Run
the fresh, cooled wort straight from the Grainfather into a clean sterilised
fermenter, ready to pitch the yeast.
Once in the fermenter, the wort
will need to ferment for approximately 2 week, after which the beer is finished
and can be bottled or transferred to a Cornelius keg.
