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!”

Buy a Wine Kit from Adventures in Homebrewing – the rest of your order ships for free! + stacking deal

Purchase any wine kit and AIH will ship your order from free to addresses in the contiguous 48 US states. Some items are not included – look for “standard shipping rates apply” to identify those items.

Stacks With: 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.

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 and Grainfather.  This is a great way to get a defacto discount on these items.

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.

Beverage Doctor pH Meter Pen

Beverage Doctor pH Meter Pen via Adventures in Homebrewing

About, from AHS:”An accurate and ergonomic pH meter! The Beverage Doctor is incredibly accurate with a resolution of .01 pH, 3 point calibration system and an automatic temperature compensation (ATC). The 3 point calibration system is incredibly easy to use and ensures the most accurate readings. To calibrate, simply insert your probe into the closest pH calibration solution to that of your test sample and push the CAL button. Thhe meter will then detect which solution value is being used, and auto calibrates in less than 5 seconds. The pH probe comes with a convenient cap that perfectly seals over the probe, preventing it from drying out and decreasing its lifespan. The probe is also designed to be easily and affordably replaced when you do need to change it. Constructed of high quality components, the Beverage Doctor is also entirely waterproof.

As of this posting, AIH has this for $49.50. Check product for current pricing and availability.

Cereal Killer Grain Mill – $99.99 + Free Shipping & Hands On Review

cereal killer grain mill

The Cereal Killer Grain Mill from Adventures in Homebrewing gets consistently great cln_img_2933feedback and is one of our Top Finds.  This is a great mill!  Check out my Hands on Review.

Milling your own grain… 1.  Gives you control over the crush of your grain.  That’s a big factor in efficiency.  2.  A mill allows you to fine tune for your equipment and process.  You know what the crush is going to be since you set it.  3.  A mill allows you to save money by buying whole bags of grain at a discount, and 3.  The shelf life of unmilled grain is longer than pre-milled grain.  Freshly milled grain = better tasting beer.

As of this posting, this great mill is on sale for $99.99 and includes free shipping .  To US addresses in the lower 48 US states.  Check AIH for up to the minute price and availability.

Cereal Killer Grain Mill

HBF Reader Feedback…

  • Anonymous… Bought this a few weeks ago. Love it. Much better than a corona mill.
  • Google+ Friend Kieran… Just used our Cereal Killer for the first time last month on a clone brew recipe. This thing is lights-out! We did not spring for the optional handle, and instead used a power drill.
  • Google+ Friend Chris… Used mine tonight, great deal, great mill.
  • Paul Says… “I have this mill and love it.”
  • Twitter Follower Dan Say “I have this mill.  I love it.”
