Grainfather Connect er siste generasjon av Grainfather, et helatomatisk bryggesystem med kapasitet på 30 liter for å brygge profesjonelt håndverksøl hjemme. Med brukervennlig design og innovative og enkle funksjoner, er denne maskinen den perfekte samarbeidspartneren for både avanserte bryggere og nybegynnere. Den nye Connect Control Box gjør det enkelt å automatisere/programmere maskinen, og du kan til og med fjernstyre den fra en iOS eller Android app. Det er også mulig å stille inn tid for oppvarming av meskevann, slik at den er klar til du er hjemme fra jobb.
Med Grainfather får du både mesking etter RIMS-metoden, skylling, koking og effektiv motstrømskjøling i én og samme enhet. Bryggingen går raskere, du er sikret høyt utbytte av malten, samtidig som at risiko for infeksjoner reduseres. Den medfølgende motstrømskjøleren avkjøler og transporterer vørteren over til gjæringstanken i én operasjon på bare 10 minutter. Jo kortere tid du bruker på avkjøling jo lavere er risikoen for infeksjoner.
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 500 watt element is used in certain stages to minimise risk of scorching and when a gentler heat is required. A second 2,000 watt element is used to ramp quickly up to boil after the mash and when more vigorous heating is required. The Grainfather cleverly switches between the two as necessary. Heating from mash to boil takes as little as 20 minutes.
- Control Box for Heat & Power Control
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.
PID algorithm works in conjunction with a triac for more stable heating and so you can control power output

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 – 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 basket’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.
