The Best Deal on Grainfather with Connect Controller for Cyber Monday

Grainfather via Keg Connection

$200 Off MAP: As of this posting, the Grainfather is currently under a MAP agreement.  That means retailers must enforce a minimum advertised price.  This unit usually sells for about $1000 and is typically not discounted.   As of this posting, it’s marked down to just $799.95.  This must be a Black Friday deal that Grainfather is authorizing as I’m seeing it at multiple retailers.

  • Free All Grain Kit: Keg Connection is offering your choice of a free recipe kit.
  • HBF Reader Coupon!  As of this posting, coupon code HBF5OFF takes an additional 5% off.  Check Keg Connection for current availability. That makes this system just $759.95
  • Free Shipping: This also ships for free to addresses in the contiguous US.

This combo is a stellar deal.  I have no idea how long it will last.  I would suggest taking advantage of this sooner rather than later.  Check Keg Connection for current availability.

Brewer’s Edge Sparge Water Heater – $119.99, Save $40 via William’s Brewing Black Friday

Brewer’s Edge Sparge Water Heater.  About, from William’s: “On your brew day, the last thing you want to think about is sparge water. If you want something as simple and easy to use as possible, so you can concentrate on your brewing process, the Brewer’s Edge® Sparge Water Heater is the solution. It heats up to 4 gallons of sparge water to precisely 168° F., and is a perfect companion to the Mash & Boil, Grainfather, or Robobrew.

Features a preset temperature of 168° F. which is digitally controlled to plus or minus 2°. The great thing about this is how simple it is – just fill the Sparge Water Heater with the gallons desired, plug in, and choose either 750 or 1500 watts depending on how loaded your circuit is. Then wait for the green light and you are ready to sparge! It generally takes about 45 minutes to heat 4 gallons when using 1500 watts, or 2 hours when using 750 watts (this time can be shortened considerably by filling the unit with hot water from your tap). Double wall construction means the Brewer’s Edge Sparge Water Heater holds heat better than competing units, and costs less to run as it is better insulated than a single wall heater. It will run for hours and hold your sparge water ready at precisely 168° F.’

  • Simplicity – No adjustments, just plug it in and wait for the green light
  • Quality double wall construction for more efficiency
  • Choose from 750 or 1500 watts depending on your circuit capacity

As of this posting, William’s Brewing is discounting a large selection of gear for Black Friday… William’s Brewing Black Friday!  This is included in the mix and marked down $40 to $119.99. Check William’s for current availability.

Brewer’s Edge Mash & Boil+Pump – $319.99, Save $80 for Black Friday

Brewer's Edge® Mash & Boil With Pump

Brewer’s Edge® Mash & Boil With Pump

More Info

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

• Simple to set up and use
• Recirculation pump for even temperatures during mashing
• High quality components throughout for dependable operation.
• Versatile – Mash, Boil, and Distill with optional Distilling package
• Two Year Warranty

Do you want to get into mashing but want something simple? The patented Brewer’s Edge® Mash & Boil with Pump makes it easy. No need for an outdoor burner, complicated brewing stand, or a 220 volt special circuit – it plugs into any 110 volt GFI household outlet. The Mash and Boil’s exclusive double wall stainless construction conserves heat to achieve a rolling boil with only 110 volts and 1600 watts, and its precise thermostat and internal sparging basket lets you mash and boil in the same vessel. Protected by U.S. patent D819,385 S.

A typical brew day with the Mash & Boil begins with formulating your 5 gallon all grain recipe (up to 16 pounds of crushed grain can be mashed), and then heating your strike water to 160° F, the preset heat temperature. After 40 minutes or so, your strike water is 160° F, and you mix your crushed grain into the sparging basket already inside the Mash and Boil. The mash will cool to 152° or so, and then you set your thermostat to 153°. Attach the Recirculation Arm and tubing and turn on the pump (leave it on during the hour long mash). Adjust the recirculation flow with the Recirculation Valve so about an inch of wort sits on top of the grain bed during the hour mash. During this mash time you will need to separately heat 3 gallons of sparge water to 175° in a separate pot you provide.

After one hour, turn off the Pump and remove the Recirculation Arm. Lift the sparging bucket and lock on its included legs, and let the malt sugar drip into your Mash & Boil, which has now became a boiling pot. Turn the thermostat up to 218° F. and give it about 40 minutes to heat to a boil. During this time, ladle one gallon of hot sparge water at a time into the top of the sparging basket until you get to 5½ gallons. Now remove the grain basket, and when the boil begins, add your hops as per your recipe. Boil for 1 hour, and then cool with a suitable wort chiller (not included, our item E81 works well as does any immersion chiller that is up to 11″ in diameter). Or use the stainless valve with ½” hose barb to run the wort through your external chiller.

The Mash & Boil features an adjustable thermostat with a range of 45° F. to 218° F. (switchable from Fahrenheit to Centigrade). It also features a delayed start timer, so you can program the Mash and Boil to turn on up to 23 hours after setting. For example, load it with strike water, and have it set to be hot when you come home from work to save time. Intended for 5 gallon batches, maximum capacity is 7½ gallons. 28” tall closed, 40” tall with basket, 14” wide. A 5′ power cord is included.
