Robobrew All Grain Electric Brewing System [no pump] – $349.99 + Free Shipping

Robobrew Electric Brewery - 35L 9.25G

About, via MoreBeer: “If you want to jump straight into all grain brewing right from your first batch, or as an upgrade from malt extract brewing, the Robobrew is a complete turn key solution. The Robobrew is an all-in-one electric brewery that has built in elements for heating and boiling, an on-board water resistant control panel for setting and monitoring temperatures, a removable grain basket, and a built in spigot for transferring. It is extremely portable and uses 110v power so it can be used nearly anywhere.”

Keep Reading

“Dual heating elements have individual switches allowing for more control over the heating process. One element is 1000 watts and the other is 500 for a combined 1500 watts! Use both when you need to ramp up the temperature quickly either at the start to get to your mash temp or to go from your mash temp to boiling. Use only one of the elements when you want to hold a temperature.

The digital control panel makes it easy to see the current temperature and set the temperature you want. You can also set a delayed start of up to 23 hours in advance so that you can have your water hot and ready to go when you get home from work or get up in the morning. The digital controller is also water resistant so don’t worry about spills or some water dripping down the side. This controller is built for brewing!

The brewery also includes a removable stainless steel malt pipe/basket with false bottom allowing you to easily shift from mash tun to boil kettle during your brew day. The malt pipe includes a handle to lift it from the RoboBrew and tabs at the base so you can set the malt pipe over the RoboBrew to let the wort drain out. It also has feet at its base to raise the malt pipe slightly off the base and help prevent clogging.”

High Temp Food Grade Pump – 12V, 108 GPH

High temperature(100'C) 6.8L/Min (108GPH) mini DC12V Water Pump. Food grade. Sous V

High temperature food safe pump.  108 Gallons per hour transfer rate.  High temperature up to 100 deg C.  Note that this is 12V DC.  You need to wire this up to a compatible power supply.

In my opinion this is not a direct one to one replacement for something like a Chugger Pump or a March Pump – the flow rate just isn’t there.  I do see some possible homebrewing applications including… Transferring wort, mash or sparge water within your system, recirculating mash to help keep a consistent temperature and recirculating wort for chilling.
