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 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: Unlike other suppliers, we include Silicone tubing for the recirculation pump.

Works great
I’m happy with my purchase.  First time brewing and Robobrew made things simple.  Beer turned out great.  Pair this with the fermentasaurus with pressure lid for closed transfers to serving kegs.  Dry hopped in both fermenter and serving keg with amazing results.  Careful with initial grains/water volume, as there is some dead space with the mashing screen.  Will have to adjust this next time to get better utilization of the grains.

So far, I did three batches This vessel is fairly compact but very powerful. My efficiency is around 80%. Makes a  great beer for a fraction of the price of other systems available on the market. It will produce only, 5 gal batches but I don't mind to brew 2-3 times a month. It is very easy to operate and easy to clean. I gave only 4 stars because the temp probe is located at the bottom by the heating elements giving a slightly skewed measurement. When you brew, take the temp readings with the digital thermometer and note discrepancies from the digital display. Then it is easy to correct your desire temperatures. A little curve at the beginning but after a couple of brews you will have a good idea what the temp should be set to. In my opinion it is not worth to spend 2+ times more to get the similar equipment with more accurate temperature readings. 
Overall, I am very pleased with the system. I was skeptical before the purchase but it exceeded my expectations. Also, get a jacket.

Piece of Cake
   I bought this hoping that it would make my brew day easier, quicker and cleaner.   SPOT ON!   I have only brewed one batch with this unit, however it is very nice and perfect for brewers like me.   Be warned that it takes some time to heat up the mash and boil pot if you are used to using a propane heater.   It took about 24 minutes to heat my mash to temperature and another 20 minutes to boil my wort.   I would recommend this to anyone looking to brew 3-5 gallon batches and looking to simplifying.  
     It would be nice to have a sight glass to make it easier hit your boil volumes.

Nice product came just as described and pictured. Just brewed my first batch a few days ago and was incredibly pleased as it made my brew day so much easier. I had previously used a three tier system with a typical metal mash tun fed by gravity. With the robobrew you you have both heating elements and a pump built in which makes makes things more compact and much simpler to use. This made hitting my target numbers real easy and for the first time they were textbook perfect. Looking forward to my second brew session this weekend.

Will the Q47 Stainless Hop Strainer for the Grainfather also work for the Robobrew?
Yes, it fits just as well in the Robobrew as it does in the Grainfather.

In Chile, we use 220V, is it necesary a plug adapter for the Keg King Robobrew? Regards
The Robobrew we sell is for the USA market, and cannot be used with 220 volts.
