Features??

- Dual Element Electric Power?

The Grainfather is electrically powered and features a dual element (both 500 watt & 2000 watt) to vary power and heat output so you can mash with lower heat and quickly bring it to boil during the different stages of the brewing the brewing process. The Grainfather cleverly switches between the two as necessary. Heating from mash to boil takes approximately 20 minutes.??

 - Grain Basket for mashing and sparging?

A stainless steel variable height grain basket allows you to brew with anything from 4.5 – 9 kg of grain. Featuring perforated plates and telescopic pipework to expand or decrease the size of the grain basket to recipes. When ready for sparging, a basket lifting handle is then inserted into the grain basket to lift it up, out of the wort. A 45 degree turn then allows the grain basket’s feet to rest on the specially designed support ring to allow the grain basket to drain while you can batch sparge over the top. A Sparge Water Heater can be purchased additionally to heat your water to the specific temperature required.??

- Counter Flow Wort Chiller?

A counter flow wort chiller has two connection points. One side is connected to the Grainfather, while the other is connected to the cold tap water. The hot wort is then pumped through copper inner coil while the cold water flows through the outer coil in the opposite direction, providing instant cooling and heat exchange. Once cooled the fresh wort can then be pumped directly into your clean, sterile fermenter. This reduces the chance of contamination as nothing is inserted in the wort, and it is only passing through the wort chiller once , going straight to the sterile fermenter where the yeast is added. A full batch of hot wort can be cooled in as little as 20 minutes. The cooled wort temperature will be cooled to approximately 5 degrees above whatever your tap water temperature is.
