I have been homebrewing for a few years now and I am always looking for ways to improve my process and make brew days easier. Brewing all grain in a flat can be a battle with limited space and a small family, the Grainfather solves these problems.
I have had the most stress-free brew days with the Grainfather and the clearest wort since homebrewing.
The grainfather is the best all in one compact system money can buy at present.
After hearing the Grainfather was going to be released, I just had to have one. After a quick demo from the team when I was visiting Beervana, I was sold.
I have used it almost every weekend since and it has never skipped a beat. My beers even scored a few medals at the national homebrew comps.
If you are thinking of moving to all grain, or just want to make better beer, I can’t recommend this unit enough. It makes brew days so easy, and so much fun, and you can’t beat a system like it at that price.
We bought a Grainfather a couple of months ago so that we could enter a local homebrew competition at Mike's brewery in Taranaki.
13 teams competing with most people having years of brewing experience.
The competition involved taking your grain extraction kit to the brewery and using a suggested recipe to produce a American IPA.
We are completely new to homebrewing and had previously made one extract brew and used the Grainfather only once to make a Jacked Up! APA two weeks before the competition so that we had some idea how it worked!
Anyway as you probably guessed, we won the competition with our recipe named 'Rain in the Face' and now get to brew our beer on a large scale at the brewery which will be released at Oktoberfest.
Just thought you'd like to hear the story of how the Grainfather allowed a group of very amateur brewers win such a competition.

I've been using the Grainfather for nearly a year, and I've just upgraded. I've gone from brewing around 30 pints each time to near 40,000!!! I have recently started my new job as part of the brewing team in one of the UK's top breweries, and it's all thanks to the Grainfather. (Well....and partly me being a decent bloke!).
It was the Grainfather, with it's fantastic design that got me started in brewing and enabled me to realise my passion for making beer. Thanks to this passion, I was offered a position of becoming one of a four man brewing team. Cheers Grainfather! (I will of course still be brewing with my Grainfather at home.)
I was thoroughly impressed by the Grainfather brewing system. It was easy to use and would be the perfect fit for any experimental batches that a commercial brewery wants to trial. The fact that you can set thermostats and pumps and leave it to work it’s magic means that you can brew and do other brewery work at the same time. Or maybe just buy a brewery sofa and have a nap while it's doing its thing!
