Buy a Grainfather w/Connect Controller – Get a Free Distilling Lid AND Free Drinkware

The Grainfather with Connect Controller – via William’s Brewing

More Info

The Grainfather is a 110 volt compact self contained RIMS mashing, boiling, and cooling system for mashing 5 gallon batches of beer. What is unique is that no special circuit, plug, or wiring is needed – this runs on any 110 volt 20 amp rated plug with a GFCI.  It features a 6 watt recirculating pump, for the mashing stage, and a separate counter flow wort chiller that you insert into the Grainfather when it is time to cool the 5 gallon batch after the electric powered boil. The boil is handled by a 1600 watt heating element.

For the initial mashing stage, you load the Grainfather with crushed grist (up to 18 pounds) per your recipe, set the thermostat to your desired mash temperature, add water, and let it go. Because it is a RIMS system, you can easily do multiple temperature rest mashing if desired – just adjust the temperature upwards with the thermostat whenever you want to go to another temperature rest. In addition the manual thermostat control, the Grainfather Connect Bluetooth control is also included.

After the mash cycle is done, you lift the grain basket partially so you can manually sparge by pouring water over the grain basket into the Grainfather below. You need to heat your own mash water, either by heating 5 gallons or so to boiling with the Grainfather before mashing and storing it in a stainless boiling pot, or heating when it is time to sparge with a separate brew pot on a stove. What we did was heat our sparge water in the Grainfather by getting it to boil in the Grainfather, then transferrring to a stainless boiling pot, and putting a lid on the pot. We then heated the pot briefly on a stove to raise it from 160° F. to the 168° F. needed for sparging,

After manual sparging, the grain basket is removed and you set the 1600 watt electric element to boil. It takes about 60-80 minutes to come to boil depending on ambient temperature. Hops are added manually during the boil per your recipe plan.

When the boil is over, you insert the included counter flow wort chiller to chill the wort which requires an external supply of cold water to run.  Our tests found this counter flow chiller extremely efficient, we chilled a 5 gallon batch of Double IPA to pitching temperature (about 78° F.) in 25 minutes, and only used 20 gallons of 70° F. water. It was so efficient that we just ran the end of the wort pipe from the counterflow directly into our fermenter.

After brewing, you run about 3 gallons of water (ideally saved from the chill) through the GrainFather again with a bit of PBW or other cleaner to clean the pump, lines, and counter flow chiller.

The Grainfather comes with a 1 year warranty.  We also offer a 60 day money back guarantee on everything we sell, even if you have used it (although this does not cover return shipping). It is 27″ tall with the recirculation tube attached, the cylinder body is 12″ in diameter, and 15″ in overall diameter when you consider the pump and thermostat.

A Grainfather app which allows you to upload recipes, and times your brew, is available free for Android and iOS. For iOS, go to iTunes and search for Grainfather, for Android, go to Google Play (the Android App has just been updated!). The included Connect Controller includes Bluetooth connectivity.


Note from HBF: I have a Grainfather (without connect controller) and I love it.  It’s my go-to brewing system.  I’ve have had or currently have multiple full scale and small scale systems and find myself coming back to the Grainfather again and again.

For a short time, William’s Brewing including a free distilling lid with purchase of a Grainfather with Connect Controller.  No coupon or promo code is necessary. Check product page for current availability.

Brew Hardware HERMS Coil 50′ x 1/2″ 304 Stainless Steel – on sale for $124.99


50′ x 1/2″ HERMS Coil via Brew Hardware.  Made of 304 Stainless Steel

More Info

From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

YOur HERMS coils are coiled in a local factory using 100% U.S. milled 304SS 1/2″ OD x .035″ wall tubing. Our standard coil diameter is 11.5″ outside diameter and the resulting coil ranges from 51-52 feet long at 10″ tall. Due the the lead in and out stems, the smallest pot diameter it will fit into is 12″ as long as the in/out fittings are above and below the coil.

This coil WILL fit into a converted 1/2BBL keg as long as the hole in the top is at least 12″ in diameter.

As pictured, our coils feature 90 Degree Cross Coil Bends meaning that he leads are bent approximately 90 degrees such that they cross the centerline of the coil. The result is a much easier install as the springiness of the coil allows for movement to line up to the bulkheads with ease. This configuration works with most of the install options you would want. However, if you have an application that would make better use of having the coil ends 90 degrees off axis from the bulkheads, such as using 90 degree compression fittings, you may request that we cut the leads off flush with the coil.

The minimum port to port distance we recommend is 9.5″ but you can stretch the coil to make it up to 14″ if you desire large gaps between coils.

Connectivity options:

First, there are a lot of ways to get a HERMS coil into a vessel and there are pros and cons like any other vessel bulkhead.

1. If you already have 1/2″ couplings welded in, that puts female 1/2″ NPT threads on the inside. You’ll need a pair of 1/2″ NPT x 1/2″ Tube Compression fittings to connect to the tubing.

2. If you are starting with a fresh tank with no holes or fittings, you can drill a pair of 13/16″ holes vertically spaced by 10-12″ and install our True Weldless Bulkheads (you need two) with 1/2″ Compression. This is the easiest and cleanest install possible without soldering or welding.

3. If the pot is unmodified and you would rather weld or solder, the best fitting for the job is the Pull Through Bulkhead with 1/2″ compression (you need two). You will drill a pair of 13/16″ holes, vertically spaced by 10 – 12″, then force the fitting through the hole using our pull through tool. With such a nice tight mechanical bond, they are a breeze to solder with our solder kits or fusion weld with a TIG machine with no (or very little) filler needed.

All these fitting options must be purchased separately as accessories seen on the right.

Note that nylon ferrules work well in locking onto these coils.
