Description 

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 an economy 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.



NOTE: We include both a Chiller Tubing Kit (with 15' of tubing) for the Wort Chiller and silicone tubing for the recirculation pump.

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.

Robobrew gen 3
only one brew day so far on this machine but it was amazing. Boil was a very good rolling boil used with the brew jacket. All my efficiency's were on point and it delivered quickly and unharmed from Williams brewing. Williams brewing has been amazing with customer service and anything I have ever needed. The pump worked great while mashing in. i made sure to use a half lb of rice hulls with my blonde ale just in case. i wish this unit had a better heating element but regardless its still awesome!

Robobrew
I own the previous version of the Robobrew unit.  I wanted to do a follow-up review, now that I've used the unit for multiple batches.  I still really love this unit. It is easy to use and the price is great. I love the recirculation pump.  It is nice to be able to use it for re-circulation during mashing and for cooling.  The wort is very clear and te clean-up is very easy.  This all makes my brew day go much faster.  The only complaint I have is the amount of time it takes to get the water to temp.  I use my old burner to get my mash water going and to heat my sparge water, which definitely saves me time.  Using the full 1500 watts that the unit produces takes about 40 minutes to bring the wort to the boil, as opposed to about 15 minutes with my burner. Even with this timing, your brew day is still shorter, because of the convenience of using the unit.  One last thing: I've had a couple of minor issues with the unit and the Williams support staff are superb.  Great unit.

Robobrew V3 Review
Got my V3 and did my first brew on it a few days ago. Made the mistake of doing a NEIPA for my first brew on this. Recipe had 1.5LB flaked oats which got a bit gummy. In the future I will use some rice hulls when doing a NEIPA. 

For what you pay it is a great package, however the US version is just too weak to do 5 gallon brews. I turned the temp all the way up to 250 degrees for the boil and it never got past 211.5 degrees. Running the pump to keep the temp even, and using the tubing to ensure there was no cooling via aeration, I was still never able to achieve a rolling boil. 

I dont see being able to do full volume biab brews on this system with a meager 1500W max output. If we could run the full 2400W like the EU, Im sure it would work. All the video demonstrations you see online that show a good rolling boil are EU version not the US versions. So please keep this in mind.

I am giving this product a 3 and that is probably being generous. I may re-do my review after my next brew.

William's Brewing Responds:  The Robobrew was not designed to boil with the pump on. Make sure the pump is kept off when it is boiling, or when you are trying to reach a boil.  Also make sure both the 500 and 1000 watt switches are on and lit up when you are coming to a boil.  Any problems after trying this, please contact us at 800-759-6025, or email: service@williamsbrewing.com   Thanks for your business!

I am going to love this thing
I am really anticipating loving this thing. Unfortunately, as it first arrived, the pump worked intermittently and seemed to be getting air bound, though I don't know how. I contacted Williams Brewing and they suggested I open the pump and see if it was jammed with something from packing (and assured me this would not void my warranty). The pump looked fine inside, but when I re-assembled it, it worked fine for a short while and then quit in the middle of my first brew day. Grrr. The folks at Williams Brewing had a new pump out to me the next day. Since I have installed the new pump, I have not had any problems. Now I just have to get familiar with all my brew options.
Good product. GREAT service from Williams Brewing!

Awesome unit.
I used this on Memorial day to make my first All Grain Brew. It heated the water for the Wort very quickly and effectively. It kept the mash at the right temperature with no problem and the pump the recirculate worked just great. Sparging seemed to go pretty well; as did the boil. I used the wort chiller by pumping the beer through it after packing in a cooler with ice. This worked like a champ. once cool and used the pump to get the Wort into the fermenter. Easy. Clean up was pretty simple. Dumped it out, rinsed it out. boiled four gallons of water and recirculated it through the chiller and pump for 15 minutes. then dumped and put away. Didn't see any Trub left anywhere. I will wash it and repeat prior to the next use.  If you use the pump Like did I would use the lid and run the hose through the hole to keep the hose from falling out the unit.  Very happy with the purchase.

Can I use the Robobrew to make Brandy from Black berries or Grapes or will I need more Attachments?
You will at least need a Distilling Package like our item J47, as well as a fermenter to ferment your Black Berry or Grape mix in.

Is the heating element welded in place like the Mash and Boil or can it be replaced if needed?
It is welded in place like the Mash & Boil and Grainfather, and cannot be replaced.

I'm interested in the 240v version of the RoboBrew. Do you have plans to ever offer it? I've been electric brewing for quiet a long time and the US version at 1500 watts is just not enough.
Not at this time.
