Description 

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 Tubing Kit S69 at right, available separately).

 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 when you put the Robobrew in your cart, you will be given an opportunity to purchase this tubing kit.  Silicone tubing for the recirculation pump is included.

Great product for the price
I was so excited to find this was being sold in the US just as I was about to buy a grainfather. It's half the price and does the job just as well as far as I can tell. Please be aware that with this price there were obviously shortcuts made. Inspect everything as I did find several metal shavings that needed to be cleaned off. You don't want these in the pump. Some parts don't fit well either but they are workable. The handle to raise the mash pipe is hard to get in and out. I have to put one end in and pull it up a bit to get the other end in. The top of the recirc pipe does not fit well either. I give it some pressure and it stays in place if you don't bump it but it should slide on and off the pipe easily. I am still happy with the purchase though. You get what you pay for and none of these things make it unusable.

Amazing all-in-one microbrewery
First of all, the packaging this unit came in was spectacular. All items were wrapped in plastic to prevent everything from banging and scratching. Williams took it one step further and double boxed it. Shipped from California to Minnesota with 0 damage. The unit itself is of great craftsmanship. Every piece fits well together and gives the unit a professional feel. Was a bit leary of it being only 1500W but it heated to sparging temps (156F) from tap water temp (68F) in ~40min and then to boiling (214F) in another 30min. That's without any insulation on it. The recirculation pump is an amazing built in feature as it makes mashing more efficient and helps to move water around when getting up to mash temps. The wort chiller is just the cherry on the cake. If you're thinking all-in-one mash and boil system, look no further. You won't be disappointed.

What's the best profile to use for BeerSmith? There's the Grandfather profile and there's the "Electric Urn-BIAB" profile.
The Grainfather one would be very similar.

In the video, he says he gave his model a "good wash" so there's no machine oils left over. Should that firstbwash be with a grease fighting dish soap or with our regular brewery cleanser?
Use PBW, B Brite, or Brewer's Edge Cleanser as these do not leave any oils like soap can.

Can this be used to distill using the B80 Still lid, and T500 Condenser?
Yes, that is what it is also designed to do.
