The Gen 3.1 Brewzilla 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 Brewzilla 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 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 FREE Chiller Tubing Kit (with 15' of tubing, hose clamps, and a female faucet adapter) for the Wort Chiller (a $19.99 value)

Amazing all-in-one microbrewery

Review by Jay on 6/9/2017

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.

Great product for the price

Review by Jesse on 6/25/2017

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.

Like Unit, needs better instructions

Review by Dj on 6/26/2017

I like the unit for convenience and ability to clean quickly but I wish it came with better directions on how to brew with it instead of just the set up. I got lucky and found a facebook group specifically for robobrewers which helped immensely. 1. MAKE AN INSULATING JACKET. use a yoga mat or car visor. Without one, my boil tops at 211. with one its 212.6. 2. The temp on the screen is temp at bottom of robobrew. Top temp is 6-8 degrees lower. Set temps higher to make up for it and use a top thermometer to verify top. 3. When recirculating, temp will drop significantly. Using 500W element will correct this but it takes time. Need to recirculate or your efficiency will be very low. 4. The timer you see on robobrew screen... is not a timer. Its a delayed start. 5. RICE HULLS ARE A ROBOBREWERS BEST FRIEND. Using these tips and joining the facebook group for robobrew users will help your efficiencyreach 65%-75% every time. Without these, you will be at 50% as I found out on my first brew.

Awesome Brewery

Review by Tab on 6/27/2017

Well I guess I was the lucky one. I had to run a die over the small tube to finish cutting the threads so it would screw into the screen, not a problem though. Continued putting together and found the malt tube handle to long. I could not remove the handle with the malt tube inserted, just took it to the good ole grinder and shaved off some material off the ends, not a problem though. Talked with Williams Brewing and Keg King about the problems, they've very responsive and looking into the problems. In conversations they found very few with this problems, I was just one of the lucky one of the draw. I give it a 5 because of the service and I love the Robobrew system.

Slick!

Review by Jay on 7/8/2017

I brewed my first beer in it last weekend. The process was pretty simple, the beer smelled awesome, and the recirculation pump worked well. I used brewers friend to calculate the water. Overall this is a great new piece of brewing equipment.

Q: Hi Williams B, Say would know what size gauge wire is used in the Robobrew cord? 16,18 or 14? wiring up a spot for the RB to go and would like to cover all the bases. Cheers

A: The stripped stranded power cord wire is 18 gauge (we measured the ground wire in the cable).

A: One year

Q: I see an answer offering this is a single wall system. Isn't double? The outer shell and the inner basket that holds the grain?

A: Yes, the inner basket is included. It is not double wall like the Mash & Boil, which has a double wall on the boiler part to help retain heat.

Q: Can I use the Robobrew to make Brandy from Black berries or Grapes or will I need more Attachments?

A: 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.

Q: Is the heating element welded in place like the Mash and Boil or can it be replaced if needed?

A: It is welded in place like the Mash & Boil and Grainfather, and cannot be replaced.
