Currently Sold Out

In stock, will ship on Monday, June 12

This is included with the Grainfather Connect, but is sold here as an upgrade for owners of older Grainfathers which do not have the latest bluetooth enabled Connect Controller. Also works to fix an older out of warranty Grainfather with a failing control box. Automation without removing the fun of brewing, be as involved as you want to be! More automation means you can multitask or simply relax while brewing and then be alerted when to return for your next step.

Use the Connect Control Box in conjunction with the Connect App (and the recipe creator coming soon) for the ultimate brewing experience.

Control Box Features:

  • Bluetooth connection to your mobile device so it can be controlled remotely 
  • PID algorithm works in conjunction with a triac for more stable heating and so you can control power output
  • Programmable step mashing
  • Delayed heating - fill your Grainfather with water the night before and wake up to your water at strike temperature ready for brewing straight away
  • Change between celsius and fahrenheit easily
  • Waterproof graphic display
  • Lugs at rear which can be changed to suit any Grainfather currently on the market
  • Use in manual mode or with app

App Features:

  • Grainfather Grain Kit recipes provided in app
  • Import Beer XML files 
  • Set your own boil temperature (for different altitudes)
  • Change between celsius and fahrenheit easily
  • Grainfather calculators provided in app

I’ve had my Grainfather for several years with the original controller. So I upgraded to the new controller and wished I’d done it sooner. Being able to preheat water while sleeping is worth every penny, not to mention it saves a lot of time.

Review by Joe P. on 5/3/2018

Disappointed that you are limited to 4 mash steps, disappointed that the app doesn't works as the instructions indicate, cumbersome to end a session, unfortunate that this was my only choice for a replacement controller, not what I had hoped for.

Q: Can we expect an Android app also?

A: If you check Google Play, there is currently an Android App, although there are some concerns voiced when you read the app description. Apparently, the bugs are being worked on right now/
