    Great Kit - Really speeds up the brew day

    Review by on

    After nearly a year of ownership I am now several brews in with this equipment and have really enjoyed my brew days using it.
    First of all turning the heat on first thing from my bed after filling my strike water the night before has really saved me lots of time on my brew days. But as the heater is so efficient it seems to take no time for the notification to come back that that the strike water is up to temp and its time to get up and get stuck into the brew day.
    With the Grainfather maintaining temps even through steped mashes it make the whole process so simple and before I know it the sparge is done and the boil is ready to go.
    The counter flow chiller is also so efficient I'm now only using a fraction of the water to cool compared to my immersion chiller and the time from flame out to pitching yeast has dropped significantly.
    The only hiccup I've had along the way was on my first brew when the temp sensor was not fully inserted into the thermowell and I ended up with an 80+ degree mash which destroyed my malt. As an extra check I now always take an extra reading from another thermometer before adding my malts.
    Other than that I've had a great time with this equipment and am looking forwards to many more brews to come.

    brilliant piece of kit

    Review by on

    i've had the GF for a few months now, once you're used to the setup and the steps you need to go through, this works pretty much like a professional piece of kit. a little flimsy here and there (thin metal) but as long as you take care of it, it should last you a long time. would recommend to get a hop spider as well, especially when you are brewing hoppy beers, as the filter can get stuck and that's a bit of a nightmare... counterflow chiller works amazing, depending on the temperature of your water, this should cool down a batch of 20l in about 20-30mins without a problem. would highly recommend if you want to be serious about the hobby. the connect app is amazing by the way and also worth checking out brew.grainfather.com as it has an integrated recipe creator and database that connects with your app.
