The Grainfather takes the best brewing practices from craft breweries and puts them into a simple to use, all in one system that anyone can use to brew a professional craft beer or distil spirits - no matter their experience.
The Grainfather Connect Control Box together with the Connect App allows the automation of brew steps without removing any of the fun. You can multitask or simply relax in between stages and be alerted when to return to the next step by your app and/or control box.
Sync your recipes from your Grainfather Brewing Community account to your mobile device. Use the App to select the recipe you want and start brewing. Easy! Plus, add your own brew session notes which sync automatically back to your Brewing Community account so you remember what to change when brewing this recipe again.

•   Sync recipes from your Grainfather Brewing Community account to your mobile device
•   Control your Grainfather via Bluetooth using your mobile device as a remote control
•   Brew a recipe from the App and your Grainfather will automatically run through the steps

Bring back the old version

Seriously, bring back the old version of this app, I just want to program the temperature and the alerts, not spend half an hour selecting ingredients for the recipe and try to input the mash temperature into stages you can’t even click on. The app doesn’t work and now I have to use the appliance in manual mode with my phone as a stop watch.


Its broken!

You guys have ruind a perfect app.
Get the old one back, or at least let us have a option to use the old simple brew setup.

Avoid this app / All grain system

This New app is terrible my previous inputed recipes don’t work anymore. My last brew day was almost ruined as the app couldn’t talk to the server. Made Grainfather aware of this, 2 months ago and still not fixed. Bring back the old app it worked now I have an expensive boiler.
