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.

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.

Grain bill total is wrong

Grain toys does not equate to the actual grain bill.. I assume this also effects the actual sparge/mash measures?! Please fix!!!

I heard others with this same issue....

Heating issues

There is a problem with the heating algorithm as the controller reduces power when it approaches set temperature. So it just sits there increasing and decreasing power and not getting to your desired temperature. So if you do a multistage mash the timer does not start although the temperature is 1 degree below the set temperature. So you mAsh longer than you want unless you watch it. That kind of defeats the point of a programmable controller.

Remote Control ok but needs work

I found the app useful to control the grainfather but found it could load BeerSmith XML files - still working to get this loaded
