    The GrainFather is an all inclusive all grain brewing system.

The mash temperature and boil are all controlled precisely with an electric heating element. The system comes with a digital temperature controller so you can adjust the temperature of your mash with in a degree. This allows for step mashing. The included pump allows for easy recirculating of your wort during the mash as well as allows for quick cooling at the end of the boil by allowing you to pump through the included counterflow chiller. This whole 8 gallon system is extremely compact so it makes for easy indoor or outdoor brewing. Another added feature is the brewing system can also double as a reflux or pot still.
