All new Grainfathers come with this Connect Control Box as standard, but it is available separately for those who wish to upgrade from an older model.
The Connect Control Box is designed for the Grainfather and to be linked with Grainfather’s Connect App and recipe creator.
The idea behind the Connect Control Box is designed to automate some of the brewing experience without taking any of the fun out of it, allowing you to multitask or, you know, relax. The app will alert you when the next step needs to happen.
Control Box features:
Bluetooth connection to your mobile device so it can be controlled remotely
PID algorithm that works with a triac for more stable heating and control over power output
Programmable step mashing
Delayed heating - fill your Grainfather with water the night before and wake up to your water at strike temperature
Switch between celsius and fahrenheit easily
Waterproof graphic display
Lugs at rear which can be changed to suit any Grainfather currently on the market
