Description 

SCRATCH AND DENT: Please note the thumbnail picture above which shows the 3 dents that are in the bottom of every Robobrew.  Caused by the false bottom during shipping, these are on all units, and will not cause leaks or interfere with function.

The Robobrew with Pump from Keg King 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 a basic 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.  Although multiple temperature rest mashing cannot be programmed,  you can do this manually, by turning up the temperature during the mash to a new set point.

 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 diamter 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.

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.

Makes Brewing Easier
Love this pot, used once so far. Happy to revisit review in a few months only if I experience any issues or problems. 
Bought scratch & dent because of availability issues, makes no impact in the performance of pot

Great Unit
I gave this machine to myself for Christmas.  There was a slight mix-up regarding some additional items I ordered with the Robobrew and I am happy to say that the Williams customer service folks took matters in hand and quickly replaced the missing items.  They even let me keep the parts that were sent to me in error!  I assembled the unit, which I must admit was a little challenging.  if there is one thing that could be improved it's the assembly instructions, which are not step-by-step.  That said, the assembly wasn't difficult, just a little confusing.  I haven't brewed yet, but will do so this weekend and I may provide an updated review, based on the results.  Thus far, everything is good and my thanks to the Williams customer service staff for outstanding responsiveness.

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.
