So there are needs, and then there are wants. To that end, I just discovered the Grainfather sparge water heater! Anyone have one of these luxurious items? I’m curious how even the heat could possibly be from bottom to top. I was looking for a cheaper model in another brand, but I might just save up and bite the Grainfather price tag.

Just concerned about even heating.
Thanks for the advice!

Was considering getting one but ended up getting a digiboil cuz i can control the temps better for sparge needs and the power it can use to heat the water, 1500 if needed.

I hadn’t considered another mash/boil type of kettle, but it’s even cheaper than the Grainfather heater by $30 or so. Good call! I did end up getting the Grainfather. Haven’t used yet, but I see the markings are in Celsius and liters. No problem, I can convert volume quickly enough. The temp setting will not change from use to use anyway.
