    Do I need a grain bag with Grainfather S40?

    Hi guys, I have a looked at a YouTube video where the guy was using a brew bag with the Grainfather S40. I’ve been a bit troubled since I thought the brew basket was enough. And now I really wonder if there is any advantage of combining the brew basket with a brew bag with my grandfather. Any...

    Grainfather vs Anvil Foundry vs Brewzilla vs ???

Brew days, including setup and cleanup take a solid 6 hours or so, which rarely have any more. I'm looking...

    Hey, I bottled my first brew with my Grandfather Conical Fermenter the other day, and I cleaned it ASAP. I rinsed it, rubbed it with a sponge, and soaked it for about 24h with Grainfather's cleaning product, but a few stains seemed to remain. So I soaked it again for about a day, and they're...

    Grainfather pump fail - forced no-chill

    Hey, Yesterday I was making a west coast IPA and my Grainfather pump decided at the very last minute to stop working... The Grainfather has a counter flow chiller which is linked to this pump - so it meant that I was stuck with beer at 80c (after my whirlpool) and no way to cool it! My only...

    Benefits and Disadvantages of Single Vessel Brewing Systems

    Not every homebrewer is a die-hard Do-It-Yourselfer. I mean sure, most of us feel the call occasionally – it’s probably the same brain wiring that makes us want to brew beer instead of buying it at the store.
