Robobrew and Grainfather Distilling Package – on sale at William’s Brewing

About, from William’s Brewing “Do you own a Robobrew or Grainfather and want to get into making your own whiskey, bourbon, rum, or cognac? We have the perfect package that includes everything you need except a Mash & Boil and ingredients to get into distilling your own whiskey, bourbon, cognac, rum. This is a Pot Still package, which means the simple pure copper condenser included does not strip all the flavor out of the mash, required for true bourbon, whiskey, cognac, and rum. This is not the best setup for Vodka, Gin, or other clear spirits, as it leaves too much flavor in the final product.

Includes a Kegland Pot Distilling Arm, 15′ of water cooling tubing with a female hose connection to attach to your cooling water source, Robobrew and Grainfather distilling lid, Hydrometer Jar and Proof and Traille Hydrometer, and complete instructions. Regularly $176.95 if purchased separately, this package saves you $26.96 and makes sure you have everything you need. Please read the instructions below before ordering.”

As of this posting, this is selling for $149.99.  This combo saves you $26.96 over purchasing these components seperately.  Check product page for up to the minute price and availability.

Buy a Grainfather w/Connect Controller – Get a Free Distilling Lid

The Grainfather with Connect Controller – via William’s Brewing

More Info

The Grainfather is a 110 volt compact self contained RIMS mashing, boiling, and cooling system for mashing 5 gallon batches of beer. What is unique is that no special circuit, plug, or wiring is needed – this runs on any 110 volt 20 amp rated plug with a GFCI.  It features a 6 watt recirculating pump, for the mashing stage, and a separate counter flow wort chiller that you insert into the Grainfather when it is time to cool the 5 gallon batch after the electric powered boil. The boil is handled by a 1600 watt heating element.

For the initial mashing stage, you load the Grainfather with crushed grist (up to 18 pounds) per your recipe, set the thermostat to your desired mash temperature, add water, and let it go. Because it is a RIMS system, you can easily do multiple temperature rest mashing if desired – just adjust the temperature upwards with the thermostat whenever you want to go to another temperature rest. In addition the manual thermostat control, the Grainfather Connect Bluetooth control is also included.

After the mash cycle is done, you lift the grain basket partially so you can manually sparge by pouring water over the grain basket into the Grainfather below. You need to heat your own mash water, either by heating 5 gallons or so to boiling with the Grainfather before mashing and storing it in a stainless boiling pot, or heating when it is time to sparge with a separate brew pot on a stove. What we did was heat our sparge water in the Grainfather by getting it to boil in the Grainfather, then transferrring to a stainless boiling pot, and putting a lid on the pot. We then heated the pot briefly on a stove to raise it from 160° F. to the 168° F. needed for sparging,

After manual sparging, the grain basket is removed and you set the 1600 watt electric element to boil. It takes about 60-80 minutes to come to boil depending on ambient temperature. Hops are added manually during the boil per your recipe plan.

When the boil is over, you insert the included counter flow wort chiller to chill the wort which requires an external supply of cold water to run.  Our tests found this counter flow chiller extremely efficient, we chilled a 5 gallon batch of Double IPA to pitching temperature (about 78° F.) in 25 minutes, and only used 20 gallons of 70° F. water. It was so efficient that we just ran the end of the wort pipe from the counterflow directly into our fermenter.

After brewing, you run about 3 gallons of water (ideally saved from the chill) through the GrainFather again with a bit of PBW or other cleaner to clean the pump, lines, and counter flow chiller.

The Grainfather comes with a 1 year warranty.  We also offer a 60 day money back guarantee on everything we sell, even if you have used it (although this does not cover return shipping). It is 27″ tall with the recirculation tube attached, the cylinder body is 12″ in diameter, and 15″ in overall diameter when you consider the pump and thermostat.

A Grainfather app which allows you to upload recipes, and times your brew, is available free for Android and iOS. For iOS, go to iTunes and search for Grainfather, for Android, go to Google Play (the Android App has just been updated!). The included Connect Controller includes Bluetooth connectivity.

 

Note from HBF: I have a Grainfather (without connect controller) and I love it.  It’s my go-to brewing system.  I’ve have had or currently have multiple full scale and small scale systems and find myself coming back to the Grainfather again and again.

For a short time, William’s Brewing including a free distilling lid with purchase of a Grainfather with Connect Controller.  No coupon or promo code is necessary. Check product page for current availability.

Keg King Ball Lock Disconnects – $3.99

William’s Brewing has Keg King’s lineup of ball lock Quick Disconnects.

Here’s the deal – in my opinion, CM Becker QDs are the best around.  There are knock offs or off-brands that do work, but just don’t seem (again IMO) to be as good.

Enter Keg King, they are making some pretty stellar stuff at great prices.  I ordered their QDs from William’s and took a look.  They appear to be similar quality to CM Becker at a better price.  I’ll report back over time, but, upon first looks, these are another home run for Keg King.

Note: William’s has had a bit of a problem keeping this in stock.  As of this posting, they are available again, but check William’s Brewing for up to the minute price and availability.
