    Grainfather vs Anvil Foundry vs Brewzilla vs ???

    Since having kids (I now have three littles), my time to brew has become extremely limited. My setup is a two burner/tier rig I cobbled together with a couple pumps for all-grain batches. Brew days, including setup and cleanup take a solid 6 hours or so, which rarely have any more. I'm looking...

    Between Brews: Controlling Gas Fired Burners Pt 2

    In the first segment I described the necessary plumbing and valves to make low pressure gas (either LP or natural gas) burners electrically controllable. To achieve control, we need to be able to apply 24VAC when we want flame, and to remove the voltage source when we don’t want flame. In this...

    Electric Brewing Simplified

    Unless you were fortunate enough to have an experienced brewer bring you into the world of home brewing, odds are your first batch was on a very basic setup. For me it was a partial extract batch brewed in a borrowed stockpot, on the gas stove-top of my old college house. A simple yet effective...

    My Electric Brewery Build

    The idea to upgrade to an all-electric brewery started 2 years ago after seeing some similar systems on several forums, including Homebrew Talk. I’ve been brewing for close to 10 years now, starting as most did: with extract in a single pot on a propane burner. When I moved to CT, brewing became...

    I'm looking at getting one of these systems to do ebiab brewing of primarily 5G batches and would like to hear feedback from folks who have owned either of the systems. I generally don't brew beers over 7-7.5% abv, so I don't have large grain bills generally and like the simplicity of the biab...
