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.

A must-have for grainfather users, but PLEASE add multi-language option


As a home brewer based in China, I would love to share my brewing experience with my non-English speaking friends and teach them the whole process.

Lots to love in this app!


Not much to complain about. Updated regularly, controls Grainfather for various steps in the brewing process, holds your recipes. All this in an easy to operate logically designed app.

If I had one wish, I'd love to see the ability to create new recipes via the app rather than having to go through Grainfather's website.

Mash Volume problems


Was looking forward to my first brew with the Connect, but after exporting a recipe from Beersmith and importing to the Connect app, I noticed my mash and sparge volumes are different. I tried a test with a second recipe and the same problem occurred. All the ingredients are still correct.
