Powered by electricity for precision mash & boil temperatures
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 is known for precision temperature control for the best possible results. A gentler heat is used at certain stages to minimise the risk of scorching and after the mash it can also ramp up the heat quickly for when more vigorous heating is required. The Grainfather cleverly switches between the two as necessary. Heating from mash to boil takes approximately 20 minutes.

The Multi-function Grainfather Pump
A 6 Watt, 1,800 RPM magnetic powered pump perfectly suited to meet tough demands of continuous brewing. Designed to recirculate the wort through the grain bed for maximum brewing efficiencies during the mash
Also the pump is used during the cooling stage to pump hot wort through the wort chiller for efficient cooling of the mash. Also used to clean all pipe work by pumping the cleaning detergent through the system.
A Grainfather pump filter is fitted inside the Grainfather to prevent hops and stray grain from entering the pump or pipework, keeping the wort clear while also preventing any blockages.
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 the size of your grain bil. 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.
Grainfather Support & 3 Year Warranty
The Grainfather is fully supported by us at AHB and by a fantastic Grainfather support team who love brewing just as much as you do. Our support team is here for any technical enquiries on brewing or how the Grainfather works, as well as general customer service enquiries. All Grainfathers come with a 36 month warranty.
