Robobrew All Grain Electric Brewing System [no pump] – $274.99!

robobrew

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.

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 ads 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.”

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!”

Anova Immersion Circulator – Touch Screen Recirculating Heat Stick

Anova Culinary Precision Cooker/Immersion Circulator (Black)

The Anova Precision Cooker Immersion Circulator is a touch screen heat stick with an integrated recirculation pump.  Set your desired temperature on the touch screen.  The Anova heats as necessary and has a circulation pump to ensure that temperatures are uniform.  Adjustable clamp and Stainless Steel Skirt.

Possible brewing uses could include: getting and keeping strike water at temp, direct use (with a filter bag in a mash tun or BIAB mash), maintaining temperature for sour mashes and getting to a boil more quickly (or helping to maintain a boil) for both all grain and extract batches.

I have a different model from Anova, the Anova One.  Check out my My Post on the Anova One.  Anova also has an article on their website about brewing with the Anova One.  Note that both of those articles reference a different unit.

Hands on Review: Wort Hog Turnkey Electric e-BIAB System!

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.

Wort Hog 120V eBIAB System

When it comes to electric Brew In A Bag (eBIAB) systems, there are several choices out there. I’ve tried both 240 Volt and 120 Volt systems. While I love the speed of heating water/wort on the 240V systems, I don’t love the constraints/expense of wiring a 240V plug in a convenient place. The 1500 Watt and 1600 Watt eBIAB units out there are good, but they do lack when it comes to speed of heating strike water or getting a really vigorous boil. The Wort Hog 120V system slides into this niche with the convenience of a 120V system, but using a 2250W Blichmann heating element to give a notable boost.

System Overview

The Wort Hog Turn Key System via High Gravity Fermentations Supplies uses a Bayou Classic 11-gallon kettle. I’d never seen a Bayou Classic kettle in person before, and I’ll admit I had a pre-conceived opinion of them. I thought of them as “cheap turkey fryers” based on their low price and marketing, but I found my baseless opinion was completely off. This 11-gallon kettle has a super shiny, polished exterior, but most importantly it was made of a very robust thick gauge stainless steel. With high quality, clean welds, this baby is certainly going to live up to wear and tear for a long time, and cleaned up very easily.
