Hi guys,

So I just purchased one of these system, mainly because I done my back in and lifting a big brew pot full of boiling wort was a no no.
I am used to doing full volume BIAB and thought this wouldn't be TOO different.
I was wrong, so much easier to use, from setting an accurate brew schedule right down to cleaning, such a breeze.
I know there are a lot of variants of this system however, this looked the best that is currently in the UK market.
Setting up was a doddle and it basically just looks after itself.
Decided to brew up a batch today of an ale I had previously done by BIAB and it was soooo much easier.
Anybody who is thinking about getting a system like this, do it, will be some of the best money you have spent.

I haven't heard of this system, but it looks similar to all the other all-in-one systems on the market, which all seem very slick and convenient. What makes it so much easier than BIAB?

To be honest, the whole brew day.
I like the fact that I get a much clearer wort of the end of the mash for one.
Also once you have mashed in, this system keeps the temp really well and will automatically top up if need while recirculating.
Once the mash is over, no need to hold what can be a very heavy bag to wait for things to drain, just hooks onto a couple of ledges and drains. It's all so easy.

What system have you gone for? I don't think you will be disappointed with it.

Nice. It looks like a modified Robobrew. The sight glass would be an improvement. I’m always guessing as to fluid levels, since it’s hard to see the volume markings when sparging.

Looks like on the Titan version, you can lift out the basket in stages.
For me that would be a significant improvement since I hurt my back last year and I'm no longer supposed to lift heavy things.

Yeah, when it comes to sparging, there are 2 different stages to rest the basket on, I guess to help reduce hot side aeration.
I have now brewed 3 times in this system and have finally got my number dialled in, seems I hit about 73% brewhouse efficiency.
Just brewed up a low ABV beer using only 2.75kg of grain and hit my og which was 1.032.
