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.

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.

This is my first experience using an electric system.  Setup was easy and links provided to online videos eliminates guess work.  I like the recirculating pump and the all-in-one unit.  Easy to clean and the immersion chiller provided works well.  Recommend buying disconnects similar to the one provided for the pump.

It takes a little longer to brew than propane but the timing features allow it to be used without having to watch it the whole time.  This more than makes up for the extra 30-45 minutes.  Probably can reduce the brew day further by setting the auto feature to warm the mash water in advance so you can start your brew day whenever you choose - haven't done this yet.

I had an issue with the unit which was immediately corrected by the support staff.  You can't go wrong doing business with Williams Brewing.  Prices are good and support excellent.

Good Unit for Brewing
Received unit a while back. Mostly a very good unit. First brew went great. Good flow with using the pump system. Second one not so much. Had issues with the mash pipe screens clogging up during mash. Maybe not such a big deal, but when the temp in lower area says 150F, the mash was only at 140F (i.e., I couldn't get the warmer water on the bottom to mix with the mash and raise the temp). Trying to get to 170F was a nightmare. Only one other issue. The chiller they give is useless if you want to brew a smaller (~3 gallon) batch as only the bottom two or so coils get submerged in the wort.

I little hiccup at first but this thing rocks
I set this up out of the box for a dry run and cleaning and had no power to the control panel. These guys took it back, fixed it( unplugged ribbon wire) and had it back to me in 4 days.
First brew was a Farmhouse with 12 pounds of grain including oats and flaked wheat. The multiple screens kept gunk out of the pump. I used the recirc during the last 40 minutes of a 60 minute mash ..I used the pump to run through my counter flow and was at 70 in the fermenter in 20 minutes. 
I was able to brew in my kitchen while it snowed. That makes this even better.

Will help produce better beer!!
Absolutely love the Robobrew! It is user friendly and helps me hit mash temps every time. Heats water to strike and boiling temps much quicker than I anticipated. Excited to use the Robobrew, and I believe it will help me learn to create better beer.... and who doesn’t want that?!?!?!

Great New Brew Kettle
Really enjoy using this.  Was using a grainfather before at a friends house and i feel for half the price this is an even higher quality product.  The pump works better and the fittings and features exceed that of the grain father.  The controls are easy to use and and the extra features such as handles on the glass lid and the kettle spout and false bottom really push it over the top.  Thanks williams brewing for great customer service as well!

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.

Do you stock the parts to convert my older model to the cam lock couplers on the spare arm
No

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.
