Connect (Controller) Instructions

The Grainfather features:

  • Full Five Gallon Batch Capacity
  • 304 grade stainless steel superior body, with 8 US Gal (30 L) capacity
  • Expandable grain basket to suit grain bills up to 19.8 lbs (9kg)
  • A robust magnetic drive pump (6 watt, 1800 RPM) and wort recirculation pipe with insulated handle, ensuring consistent temperatures throughout the mash and maximising efficiencies
  • Pump filter to keep hops and stray grain in the boiler, and your wort clear and bright
  • Counterflow Wort Chiller with copper inner coil, cooling your wort to <68Ãâ€Ã…¡Ãƒâ€Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚°F within 20mins
  • Toughened plastic control box and display screen, giving you total temperature and pump control. Dial in the exact temperature for your mash, allowing both step mashing and single temperature mashing with very fast ramp up between steps
  • Dual heating element (1600 watt and 600 watt elements) allowing you to switch between heating quickly to a vigorous boil and maintaining a stable temperature
  • Tempered glass lid for maximum durability, heating efficiencies and visibility during your brewday
  • Top and bottom mesh screens for your grain basket, allowing even distribution of your sparge water and ensuring no grain enters the boiler
  • Dimensions: 29" H x 19.1" L x 17.2" W
Pump Features:
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 â€ÃƒÆ’¢€Ãƒâ€¦Ã¢€Å“ 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 basketâ€ÃƒÆ’¢â€Ã…¾Ã‚¢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.

Control Box Features:

  • Bluetooth connection to your mobile device so it can be controlled remotely
  • 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
  • Lugs at rear which can be changed to suit any Grainfather currently on the market
  • Use in manual mode or with app
