The Grainfather G70 All Grain Brewing System - 70L/18.4G (220V)

The Grainfather G70 All Grain Brewing System – 70L/18.4G (220V) via MoreBeer

More Info

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

Massive 18.5 gallon preboil capacity
Powerful 3,300 watt heating element
Color LCD controller magnetically mounted for easy removal and cleaning
Wireless control via the Grainfather Community App
Dual stage false bottom to prevent stuck sparges
Wort chiller included
These systems will ship free to anywhere in the contiguous United States.

From the creators of the original award-winning all grain brewing system, the Grainfather G70 represents the next level in brewing equipment. Grainfather stepped up their game to bring you a smarter brewing system with a larger 70L capacity, improved design, wireless control, app integration and the same Grainfather signature quality guarantee. Whether you’re a homebrewer looking to raise the stakes or a commercial brewery looking to bring authenticity back to your pilot batches, the G70 is your true brewing companion. It gives you everything you need in one compact package that can be used virtually anywhere.

Custom Two Stage False Bottom
The conical base allows a false bottom with an inner collar to sit in the recess of the base. Early testers used 600gs of hops and saw full flow through the pump. This is very effective.

Powerful, Concealed Heating Element
Bespoke 3.2 kWh concealed conical heating element. Make the most of the power available. The element covers around 80% of the base and is mounted using a thermal paste rather than braised. This moves the heat efficiently upwards, minimizing the loss of heat to areas where it’s not needed. As it’s spread in a wide area, hot spots and scorching are very unlikely. Also, most solids settle on the false bottom, so they won’t touch the elements. As it’s concealed, it makes cleaning easy too.

Integrated Sight Glass
Integrated sight glass for easy volume readings during sparging. Instead of trying to judge the level of your preboil, you can easily sparge until you reach preboil volume. It’s also easy to clean after every brew. The sight glass cap can be replaced with the sight glass cleaning barb to easily recirculate a cleaning solution.

Redesigned for Improved Lautering
New rolled edge, mash plates and hop filter for increased strength and easy set up. There’s no more silicone seals, as the plates now have a smooth finish, making them more robust, hard-wearing and easy to install. Compared to the G30, the G70 is wider but not that much taller. Comparatively, the draining is still quick from the basket and there’s less likelihood of stuck sparges as the draining surface area is bigger.

Side Entry Recirculation
Convenient side entry recirculation. Rather than up and over, the G70 has a built-in port on the side of the unit. If the pump is accidentally switched on, the wort will be safely directed back into the boiler.

Dual Stage Hop Filtration
Large dual-stage hop filter provides a large surface area to allow for a hopping rate of up to 1.5kg, which also reduces pump load and blockages.
Wort Chiller Included
Huge Wort Chiller comes standard. Despite the volume being more than double, cooling times remain around the same as the G30 thanks to a more powerful pump, efficient false bottom and bigger wort chiller to match the wider unit.

Other Features:

Bottom drain below the false bottom means minimal dead space.
High temperature, high flow rate, food-grade pump. With an 8L per minute flow rate, you can transfer your brew efficiently and safely.
Heavy duty handles on the outside of the G70 unit.
Automatic heat sensors and safety cut-out for dry boil protection.
Color LCD controller screen with magnetic mounting for easy viewing from all angles and manual control.
Glass lid with handle.
Ball valve for sampling/draining.
Lifting bar included with winch lifting hook.
Robust stainless steel body and excellent build quality.
Wireless control via the Grainfather Community App
Safety aspects including locked in support ring, heavy duty, no slip brackets on the grain basket and protection from knocking the ball valve open.
Specs:

18.5 gal (70 L) Max preboil capacity
Max Grain Capacity – 37.5 lbs
Min Grain Capacity – 17.6 lbs
3300 Watt
220-240 V
50/60 Hz

Hands On Review: German Made Speidel Fermenters

Hands on Review Speidel Fermenters

German Made, Speidel Fermenters are available in a range of sizes 3.2 gallons all the way up to… 132 gallons.  Check out the full lineup including accessories and replacement gaskets.

I’ve owned a 5.3 gallon Speidel fermenter since October of 2011.  I use it for small batch BIAB beers.  I’ve been very impressed with that fermenter.  More recently, I picked up the 7.9 gallon version so that I can ferment full 5 gallon batches with all the same advantages.  This is a hands on review of both fermenters.

10 and 15 Gallon Torpedo Ball Lock Kegs In Stock + Hands on Review

 New 10 & 15 Gal. Torpedo Kegs!

New 10 & 15 Gal. Torpedo Kegs!

From MoreBeer:

Look out below! The Torpedo Keg Depth Charge series just dropped and they’re set to send blast waves through the homebrew world. Large-scale homebrewers will appreciate the ability to fit their entire batch into a single 10 or 15 gallon ball lock keg, and you can expect the same great features that have made Torpedo Kegs such a hit. Laser welded construction for superior quality, rolled stainless steel handles that will last a lifetime, and stackable design that won’t interfere with your fittings.

To learn more and order your Torpedo Kegs, click here


Thoughts from HBF: This is a great entry into the homebrewing keg market.  Larger 10 and 15 gallon kegs are tough to find and even more difficult to find at a reasonable price.  The current prices, $219 for a 15 gallon keg and $199 for a 10 gallon keg are.. bargains, especially considering that they ship for free to many US addresses.  Beyond kegging larger homebrew batches these can be used as fermenters.
