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.

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!”

Stacking Deals On: 15 Gallon Blichmann BoilerMaker G2 Boil Kettle! – best deal I’ve ever seen on this kettle

blichmann boilermaker kettles

Blichmann G2 Kettles come in a variety of sizes and configurations.  They are tricked out and designed for homebrewing.  They includes a sight gauge, thermometer, revolutionary valve design and more.  Check out my review… Hands on Review – Blichmann BoilerMaker G2 Kettles!

Discounts on Blichmann gear are rare. They are under MAP (minimum advertised pricing) agreements that make sales difficult.  There are periodic workarounds.

Deal #1: As of this posting, Adventures in Homebrewing has the 15 gallon BoilerMaker marked down to $354.99.  From what I can gather, that’s about $21 less than typical MAP pricing.  Shipping to addresses in the contiguous 48 US states is also free.

Deal;  #2: As of this posting, Adventures in Homebrewing is giving up to 750 additional bonus rewards points based on how much you purchase. No promo code is needed. Bonus points figure to about a 5% value.  Example: 750 points is about $37.50.  This kettle qualifies for 355 points + the full 750 bonus points.  That comes out to 1,105 points or the equivalent of about $55.25 back on a future purchase AND free shipping to most US addresses is still in play.

Best Deal I’ve Ever Seen: I’m pretty sure this is the best deal we’ve ever run on this kettle.  There may have been an eBay promo that took 20% off.  That would have been about $75 off.  This equals to a total savings about about $76.25, so even if one of those applied to a MAP priced offering this deal beats it.

Bonus AIH Rewards Points! – works with sale items, Blichmann, SS Brewtech, Grainfather & More

As of this posting, Adventures in Homebrewing is giving additional bonus points based on how much you purchase.  This does bundle with many of their existing sale items!  No promo code is needed.  More about AIH’s Rewards Program.

Bonus points figure to about a 5% value.  Example: 750 points – is about $37.50.  An example… the SS Brewtech’s great Brew Bucket Fermenter is selling for $199. That’s about what I consider MAP to be.  MAP = Minimum Advertised Price.  It’s an agreement between sellers and manufacturer’s not to sell an item below a certain price.  Rewards programs like this are one way to legitimately get a deal on MAP goods.  So, the fermenter purchase earns you 199 points + an additional 450 bonus points or 649 points total.  Those points are the equivalent of about $32.45 toward a future purchase.  $199 minus $32.45 is… $166.55.  A great deal on this awesome fermenter.  Note that the $166.55 is for summary purposes only, the $32.45 would be in the form of rewards toward a future purchase.

This works with nearly everything site wide including sale items.  It also works on some product lines that are typically excluded from promotions like – Blichmann, SS Brewtech, Anvil and Grainfather.  This is a great way to get a defacto discount on these items.
