Here at Grainfather, we think that life is too short to make bad beer. While no one would say that brewing beer is simple, we’ve developed the design and engineering from craft breweries to create a range of easy-to-use homebrewing systems which are the perfect present for any beer lover.
Any craft beer enthusiast can make great beer at home and brewing with grain gives the freshest and most delicious results!
To start making beer from grain you need two key pieces of equipment – a brewing system, and a fermenter. You’ll also need some ingredients including grain, hops, yeast, and water. With the gift of a gadget-packed Grainfather brewing system, the first five steps (from heating to chilling/transferring) usually take around six to eight hours to complete. Then, once chilled and transferred into one of our temperature-controlled fermenters, they can take care of the rest until ready to bottle or keg!
Going from grain to glass usually takes around four weeks but timing is ultimately determined by the style of beer that’s brewed and with our equipment, there is no limit to what you can make. Check out Brewing 101 for a deeper insight into brewing with grain.
Searching for gift ideas for someone who loves beer? Look no further than our line-up of brewing systems.
The Grainfather S40 is a stainless steel, feature-packed brewing system that allows any brewer to create 38L (10 US Gal) of beer from one brew. Plus, for the gadget geeks, there’s our multi-awarding, app integrated, 30L (8 US Gal) brewing system – the Grainfather G30.
To gift a complete homebrewery setup, we also have a range of fermenters. Our GF30 has all the bells and whistles. It’s a 30L (8 US Gal), digitally controlled, app integrated, stainless steel fermenter. Plus, we have our 25L (7 US Gal) fermenter that features less tech but still has a high-quality, stainless steel build. Provide everything that a beer lover needs to start brewing at home by combining either one of these fermenters with the G30 or S40.
Our range of G SERIES systems are app integrated, so we don’t just stop at equipment. We have a free brewing app for both Android and Apple users, which provides the ultimate brewing experience. Once connected with our equipment via Wi-FI® or Bluetooth®, access our step-by-step system and let the app guide you through every brew.
We have the utmost pride in the equipment that we design and engineer, but also the service that we offer too. We’ve created an online hub of beer recipes, brewing resources, and support for any level of brewer. The best part is that it’s easy to access, anywhere, at any time.
We’re a global team of beer enthusiasts in New Zealand, Australia, Europe, the UK, and the USA.
