For 3 gallon batches I tend to use about 5-6 lbs of grain. The Grainfather FAQ on their website says they don't recommend going below 5.5 lbs of grain. However, I just noticed they sell "micro pipework" for 2.6 gallon batches for $35.I think the Grainfather looks nice. I agree I would prefer more power but that would require either brewing in the laundry room (dryer circuit) or having an electrician run a new 20 Ampere circuit.
The second reason I don't think Grainfather is for me is batch size. I really like 3 gallon batches. I brew more often and get more variety.
No reason you can't do a 3 gal. batch on the GF.
Right...just need to make some adjustments for a smaller grail bill, but all of that is in the instruction manual.
Yep. I use the micro pipework and do 3 gallon batches. Works great.
