Announcing: Auber Cube 240V/30A Controller now at Brew Hardware

TEMP CONTROLLER, 240V/30A AUBER CUBE ECONOMY CONTROLLER

TEMP CONTROLLER, 240V/30A AUBER CUBE ECONOMY CONTROLLER via Brew Hardware.

More Info

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

The Auber Instruments Cube controller is a feature rich tabletop style controller capable of providing precise temperature control as well as boil intensity control for boil kettles. It can handle up to a 6000 watt element. The heart of the system is the EZboil “brain” that is unsurpassed by any other industry PID. We’ve been recommending Auber controllers for years and finally started stocking units for your convenience. This is essentially a single vessel controller, suited very well for BIAB vessels but it could also be used for a budget multi-vessel controller if you’re willing to swap plugs between elements.

In Mash Mode, set a target temperature by twisting the input knob and pressing in the knob to set it. An advanced PID algorithm will run the element as aggressively as possible without overshooting to get you brewing as fast as possible. When the temp is reached it will sound an internal alarm and start an internal mash timer.

In Boil Mode, the unit will run the element 100% output to ramp to a boil quickly but as soon as it approaches boil, it will sound an alarm and automatically ramp the power down to whatever power setting you’ve entered. This avoids boilovers without having to watch the kettle like a hawk.

This economical version of the Cube controller has two auxiliary 120 volt outlets that are each controlled by panel-mount on/off switches. This is typically used to control a pump or two. Due to this feature, the power input for the entire controller is 4-wire (hot, hot, neutral, ground). This package includes the L14-30R receptacle for power input but not the cable or the male plug. See an accessory cable in the list on the right.

The standard temperature probe we offer with this controller is 4″ long and has a built in weldless bulkhead. The hole required in your pot is 9/16″. The sensor cable is quick disconnectable from both the controller box via XLR plug and also on the probe end so you can move your kettles easily for cleaning without removing the entire probe.

The Grainfather is an all inclusive all grain brewing system. The system allows you to mash at high extract efficiency by utilizing a pump for easy recirculating of the wort through the mashing process. The grain bed is then easy raised out of the kettle to provide for sparging and draining of the grains. Your mash tun then becomes an electric boil kettle.

The mash temperature and boil are all controlled precisely with an electric heating element. The system comes with a digital temperature controller so you can adjust temperature of your mash with in a degree. This allows for step mashing.

The included pump allows for easy recirculating of your wort during the mash as well as allows for quick cooling at the end of the boil by allowing you to pump through the included counterflow chiller.

This whole 8 gallon system is extremely compact so it makes for easy indoor or outdoor brewing.

Robobrew V3 All Grain Brewing System, No Pump – $299.99 + free shipping

Robobrew V3 All Grain Brewing System - 35L/9.25G AG470A

Robobrew V3 All Grain Brewing System – 35L/9.25G via MoreBeer

More Info

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

If you want to jump 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 onboard water resistant control panel for setting and monitoring temperatures, a removable grain basket, and a built in spigot for transfering. It is extremely portable and uses 110v power so it can be used nearly anywhere.

Dual heating elements run off of a single 110 volt plug and 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 stainless steel malt pipe 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.

The included stainless wort chillers is shipped with bare ends so you can set it up for your situation. We list below the most common tubing and fittings to connect to a hose, hose bib, or faucet.

What MoreBeer! loves about this product: Homebrewing is trending in the direction of all-in-one, all-grain brewing systems and the Robobrew is the ultimate value. Being electric and all in one vessel, we can easily say this is absolutely the simplest way to get into all-grain brewing. You can move it around with ease which makes it perfect for guys and gals that have space constraints. The reason to choose this model over the version with the pump is price and simplicity. This unit makes great beer – you certainly do not need a pump and the pump adds some complexity. All in all a great buy and highly recommended. Please note you will need a few extra pieces of hardware to connect the wort chiller.

  • Stainless steel construction
  • 9 gallon total capacity with a finished beer output of 5-6 gallons
  • Digital temperature controller
  • 110v power and plug
  • Dual heating elements for total control (1000 watts and 500 watts)
  • Stainless steel 1/2 inch ball valve for draining
  • Immersion wort chiller included
  • Stainless steel malt pipe/basket
  • Stamped in volume markers
  • Glass lid
  • Temperature reads in °F or °C (press and hold temp button for several seconds to adjust)
  • 32.75 in H (with recirculation arm) x 12.5 in D
  • Recommended max. grain bill – 18 lbs
  • Recommended min. grain bill – 8 lbs
