Just wondering if anyone had a Grainfather brewing system and wondered what your thoughts are on it.


I am looking to purchase a G40 when stock arrives into the country,

Have had one for 4 years and have done about 40 brews 


well worth the time and effort


It is best to have a old fridge or something you can temperature control for conditioning


makes a huge difference to the final product and of course some kegs to put it in.




There are great groups on facebook and good forums on the grainfather website

Have recently upgraded from my original Robobrew to a Grainfather - same concept just some newer bells and whistles on the Grainfather.


Only one brew in with the new unit but have been brewing for many years with the Robobrew.


Be warned - the unit will be the start of gradually adding every new toy to increase quality at each stage over the next few years....

Yeah I've had the G30 for a couple of years now. Done a dozen or so batches. Works awesomely in my opinion. I got my setup in reverse order, got a keg setup first cos I absolutely hate bottling and a fermentation fridge cos that makes a huge difference to the finished product, but yeah the Grain father itself is great.

That's great to hear as well.


The "shopping list" does definitely grow when getting into all grain brewing.

Ex work colleague had one and swore by it. Made huge volumes :)

Had various Raspberry Pi's hooked up etc to measure and control temps so that he could save the recipes for reuse.
