The Gen 3 Robobrew with Pump from Kegland features a recirculation pump with an on off switch, as well as a false bottom and grain pipe to both protect the pump from clogging, and hold the crushed grain above the bottom for good wort circulation. The Unit holds  
9 gallons, although we do not recommend boiling more than 6½ gallons (perfect for 5-6 gallon batches). The grain pipe (basket) holds up to 18 pounds of crushed malt, and a pipe with silicone hose on top feeds the recirculated wort from the pump evenly on top of the grain bed.  Runs on any GFCI protected 110 volt plug with at least 15 amps.

 Something like a simpler Grainfather, the Robobrew has an electronic thermostat that lets you set temperature and also has a delayed start feature, so you can program it to turn on up to 23 hours in advance, handy when you want hot strike water when you return home from work.  Multiple temperature rests can be programmed in at the start of mashing, see the pdf instructions below for full details.

 The Robobrew also includes a simple stainless immersion wort chiller with ½” hose barb outlets, although you need to provide the water in/out hoses and fittings (see our Robobrew Chiller Tubing Kit at right, available as an option above).

 The system includes a Digital Backlit Temperature Control and Display, Malt Pipe, Dual Element Heating (500 and 1000 watts for 1500 watts total), a stainless ball valve with ½ threads to accept any NPT accessory, and a Magnetic Pump installed in the base.  A great deal on a recirculating electric system that will work anywhere you have a suitable 110 volt plug.

NEEDED, BUT NOT INCLUDED: ½" Interior diameter tubing (usually 10 to 15') to connect the immersion wort chiller to your water source and hose attachment fittings. We have an optional kit for this, and you can check the option box above to order this kit when you place your order.

NOTE: Silicone tubing for the recirculation pump is included.

We highly recommend you read the current instructions before ordering as they are more up to date than the printed instructions included with the Robobrew. Please click on the pdf below.

Solid all-in-one
I have only brewed 2 beers with this but it has been a pure joy! Very easy to run and use, since the sparge arm has a ball valve you can adjust sparging flow rates. Easy to clean as well since after initial scrub down you can run a PBW solution through it! More sturdy than expected.
Note: if you do NOT use the RIMS feature the temperature is at the bottom, not in the center of your mash, either use a separate thermometer for your mash or set temp 2 degrees highers than target.

I came from a brew-in-a-bag set up doing everything out of one vessel.  Brew days were long, clean up was tedious, etc. My efficiency prior to the this purchase was very consistent at about 75%.  My first brew on this system is gave me 80% efficiency, and my brew time was drastically reduced.  I was cleaned up and enjoying a victory beer in 4 hours! The pump is fantastic for mashing and cooling.   So far I am extremely happy with the purchase.  I brew indoors now and brewing is much more fun than it is work now.  I need more fermentation vessels!
Note: learn the system before you brew.  Do a couple dry runs with it.  The temp difference will be about 4 degrees F off from top to bottom of vessel. And keep a set of needle-nose pliers on hand for brew day.  The malt pipe extension can be tricky to center and to set on the conical machined fitting on top of the mash screen.  Other than that, this unit is the absolute best value and investment I have made in brewing to date! Cheers!

I bought the scratch and dent sale Robobrew. I have had a couple email conversations with Williams Brewing and found that they are quick to respond too.  I would highly recommend Williams Brewing and love the convienience of my new Robobrew.

Robobrew w/pump
Great value for the money. My first brew was a coffee porter and everything went well and the system worked as expected. It did take some time to get to a rolling boil but once there it maintained it well. A couple observations - hard to know the volume when draining the grain. the jacket accessory may help retain heat better which I ordered. The top screen with the gasket does not fit the malt pipe very well, I’m unsure if maybe my malt pipe is bent? After the first brew I installed a screen mesh filter to the drain under the false bottom because a good amount of grain flowed through. I also used a mesh bag for my hops so it did not clog the filter. Overall I’m pleased with the unit and the ease of brewing electric.

Poor Quality Control
The malt pipe was warped/flat on the welded seam due to poor manufacturing and lack of quality control.  The warp was so severe that it is preventing me from installing the top screen. Additionally,  the lid does not fit on the main unit without having to use excessive force and pushing down on opposite sides at once because the unit is a little warped.  I don't use excessive force and just leave the lid laying on top of the unit during brewing out of fear of it slipping and splashing boiling water on myself.  Not sure why a Keg King would ship a product without first ensuring all the pieces fit together.  Williams Brewing did send me a replacement malt pipe, so thank goodness for their GREAT customer service.  I would not recommend this product to other customers.

In your opinion which is the better choice, the Robobrew or the Mash and Boil unit? I realize the Robobrew has a pump but it wouldn't be too difficult to utilize an after market pump for the same purpose. Please answer via email Thank you!!
Jeff:  The Mash & Boil is simpler and a little better quality, the Robobrew features a built in pump.  If you must have a pump, the Robobrew is the way to go, but if you are used to single temperature mashing like in a rubbermaid cooler, the Mash & Boil is easier to use.

So with the still and fermenter lid option, you can brew liquor?
Yes, you can distill. You can also do this with the Mash & Boil (see item B27) which is in stock.
