Robobrew All Grain Brewing System via Adventures in Homebrewing

from AIH: “The easiest way to start all grain brewing today! The Robobrew All Grain Brewing System is a 9.25 gallon (35 L) capacity electric brewing system that makes it simple for homebrewers to step up to all grain brewing without a mountain of equipment and costs. This system includes a stainless steel mash tun/boil kettle, recirculation arm and pump, water resistant control panel, grain basket/malt pipe, spigot, and immersion wort chiller.”

More Info

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

The Robobrew features dual heating elements, one 1000 watt and one 500 watt, to give you full control over the heating process. Individual switches control the elements, allowing you to fire both elements to quickly heat your water to mash temperature or bring your wort to a boil, or just use one element when you want to maintain a constant temperature. The on-board water resistant control panel allows you to set and monitor temperatures. The delayed start feature allows you to set your temp (up to 23 hours in advance) and have your brewing water hot and ready for when you wake up or return home from work.

A built-in magnetic drive pump recirculates your wort through the recirculation arm. Make sure to add on some high temp silicone tubing to gain even more control over the recirculation process; it also serves as a great transfer/drain tube for the include stainless steel ball valve. Recirculating your wort will increase your efficiency and lead to better beers with greater yields.

A stainless steel malt pipe makes converting from a mash tun to a boil kettle super simple. The easy to left handles on the malt pipe lets you raise the pipe above the Robobrew system, with bottom tabs to stabilize the malt pipe while allowing your wort to properly drain. The interior of the Robobrew features etched gallon/liter markings and has a 1/2″ stainless steel ball valve to easily drain and transfer your brew. Once your done boiling, the included immersion wort chiller will bring your brew back down to pitching temperature in no time!”

Our Top Posts of 2018 #5… Hands on Review: Brewer’s Edge Mash & Boil Electric Brewery

To celebrate a great year, we’re going through some of our top content of 2018.  This was our #5 most visited post…

Brewer’s Edge Mash & Boil

I reviewed a number of electric all-in-one brewing systems a little over a year ago. As a collective group, these systems offer a lot to the homebrewer. They provide the flexibility and control of brewing process of all-grain, and the equipment simplicity of brew-in-a-bag. The fact that they’re electric gives you the ability to brew inside and convenience of not having to chase propane tank fill-ups. The electric systems also have the ability to set a target temperature and control to it, giving you better control of your brew day. All of these combine to create a more streamlined and less stressful brew day.

Each system has its own strengths and they all span a wide price range. The units I tried last year ranged from $470 at the low end to $2,500 at the high end. When I saw the Brewer’s Edge Mash & Boil coming in at $300, I was intrigued to see how this unit would work and if you really could go all-grain with an electric system at such an affordable price point.

Our Top Posts of 2018 #7… Hands on Review: Robobrew All Grain Brewing System

To celebrate a great year, we’re going through some of our top content of 2018.  This was our #7 most visited post…

This review is by Homebrew Finds Contributor Brad Probert.  Brad is an engineer, expert homebrewer and experienced reviewer.  Grab a link to Brad’s website at the end of this review.

The Robobrew is an electric all-in-one eBIAB system. It allows you to brew the complexity of all-grain batches with the simplicity of electric heat/control in a single vessel system. There is a wide variety of these systems out on the market to choose from. Robobrew aims to be in the midst of these as far as features and function, but at a much lower price to attempt to get this tool in the hands of as many homebrewers as possible.

Robobrew System Overview

The Robobrew comes in 2 models- one with a built-in pump, and one without. The model without the pump retails for about $350, and the one with a pump for $480. Although a significant price jump, the $480 price tag is several hundred cheaper than its competition. Getting a unit with a pump allows you to take advantage of a lot of the process efficiencies from the eBIAB systems, with convenience of recirculation during mash and pressure-fed wort transfer into your fermenter.

The pump is built into the bottom of the unit, tucked away out of sight and out of the way. There is a stainless steel transfer pipe that takes output flow from the pump and sends it up top where it can be directed to where you want it to go. The pump inlet is through an opening in the bottom of the brew chamber. Also in the bottom is the wort temperature sensor and the two independently switched heating elements (1000W + 500W). Although the heating elements have their own manual on/off switch, the unit’s electric controller also has the ability to shut off and turn on power depending on measured mash temperature compared to your set temperature. Importantly, the controller is smart enough to know when it should be using one or both elements when it’s getting close to your set temperature. It also is smart enough to only switch on the 500W element while trying to hold a steady temperature and things start to drift a bit.

For mashing, you put your crushed grains into the stainless steel malt pipe, which has a false bottom mesh on the bottom of it to keep grains from getting circulated into the pump or scorched to the bottom. There’s also a second false ‘bottom’ screen, which slides down inside the malt pipe after you’ve filled it with your crushed grains. And if two false bottoms aren’t enough for you, Robobrew has you covered with a third false bottom that sits below the malt pipe, giving you another layer of defense against stray grain particles during the mash, but also importantly keeps hop residue from clogging up your pump or wort chiller.

The controller provides basic control function by allowing you to set a target temperature with simple + / – buttons and then letting the controller turn on the elements automatically to heat up and then switch off when the target temperature is reached. There is also a delay feature that allows you to program in a delayed start for when you want the target set temperature to kick in. Set it to something short like a few minutes and make a pseudo mash temperature step profile you program one step at a time. Or for longer times (up to 24 hours) if you want to fill it with water and have the unit turn on to be ready for you after work.
