Grainfather G70 Brewing System
8/4/20 Online orders are paused until Easter so we can catch up on the backlog. While the team are in lockdown its only me picking and packing so we need to clear the orders in the system before we accept new orders. Please be patient and we'll open up the website to online orders again over Easter Weekend. Take care. Bryan
We are open and shipping online orders only from 6th April 2020. Our Retail shop is closed while we are in Level 4 of the lockdown so there can be no pickups from Brewers Coop. All orders are being couriered via our normal courier company. Please note that we are on reduced staffing and some product lines are out of stock. We will contact you if your order needs substitutions buut rest assured we are doing our best to get you your brewing supplies. Take care, Bryan
Complete unit including Counterflow Wort Chiller, dust cover, quick connect re-circulation hose and lifting bracket. No accessory kit needed.
Large brewing capacity. 60L into fermenter with up to 7.5% ABV finished beer. That will give you 3 Corney kegs of fresh beer.
PID heating control for high accuracy mashing.
The G70 comes with 3-year warranty.
Fast and easy cleaning. Clean in place capability minimises the need to remove and individually clean parts. Easy and sanitary brew transfer.
Large, high efficiency Counterflow Wort Chiller included.
Smart controller with built-in wireless connectivity and mobile app integration for step-by-step remote controlled brewing. Monitor your brew on your mobile device.
Two stage false bottom. The conical base allows a false bottom with an inner collar to sit in the recess of the base. Early testers used 600gs of hops and saw full flow through the pump. This is very effective.
Convenient side entry recirculation. Rather than up and over, the G70 has a built in port on the side of the unit. If the pump is accidentally switched on, the wort will be safely directed back into the boiler.
Ball valve for sampling/draining. This runs in line with the pump so it’s particularly helpful when draining the cleaning water. The water runs out quickly, emptying the unit in no time.
Bespoke 3.2 kWh concealed conical heating element. Make the most of the power available. The element covers around 80% of the base and is mounted using a thermal paste rather than braised. Also, most solids settle on the false bottom, so they won’t touch the elements. As it’s concealed, it makes cleaning easy too.
New rolled edge, mash plates and hop filter for increased strength and easy set up. There’s no more silicone seals, as the plates now have a smooth finish, making them more robust, hard-wearing and easy to install.
Compared to the G30, the G70 is wider but not that much taller. Comparatively, the draining is still quick from the basket and there’s less likelihood of stuck sparges as the draining surface area is bigger.
Huge Wort Chiller included. Despite the volume being more than double, cooling times remain around the same as the G30 thanks to a more powerful pump, efficient false bottom and bigger wort chiller to match the wider unit. The large size means it needs to be positioned away from the G70, however this is made easy with longer silicone tubing attached as standard.
Integrated sight glass for easy volume readings during sparging. Instead of trying to judge the level of your preboil, you can easily sparge until you reach preboil volume.
Safety aspects including locked in support ring, heavy duty, no slip brackets on the grain basket and protection from knocking the ball valve open. Lifting bar included with winch lifting hook. Use the bar for a two person lift or with a stable winch system for individual brewers to lift the grain basket. Bottom drain below the false bottom means minimal dead space.
Automatic heat sensors and safety cut-out for dry boil protection.
Large dual-stage hop filter provides a large surface area to allow for a hopping rate of up to 1.5kg, which also reduces pump load and blockages.
High temperature, high flow rate, food-grade pump. With an 8L per minute flow rate, you can transfer your brew efficiently and safely.
Colour LCD controller screen with magnetic mounting for easy viewing from all angles and manual control. Robust stainless steel body and excellent build quality.
Power requirements: 3300 Watt 220-240 V 50Hz/60Hz (NZ, AU, EU, SA, US, CA)
Note: The G70 requires a 15 amps fuse and socket.
