    A Must have accessory.

    Posted by Ryan on Jan 28th 2017

    So this was the free accessory I chose with my GF purchase. I knew I would want one if not immedately, eventually.

    As far as things such as the fit and finish of this coat? Its top notch. It looks good and feels even better. It has some weight to it too, which is good as this is insulation.

    It fits absolutely perfect and was very easy to put on.

    Now for the REAL point of this. How does this help with what its supposed to to? It works. It flat out works. For me this is what it cut off on heating times.

    I havnt brewed with the system yet, but I have done the cleaning and just general fiddling around with it to get familiar with the unit. This thing is awesome. I wish I had gotten it sooner frankly.

    It feels quite well put together. All the components feel very high quality. Temp controller is spot on out of the box (compared it to my SSbrewbuckets probe).

    Im expecting great things from it when I can actually brew with it. Really really looking forward to being able to brew inside when the weather is awful.

    Id highly recommend this to anyone looking for an all in one system.

    Also the counterflow chiller is amazing. It was taking boiling water down to pitch temp instantly.

    As for how long it takes to actually heat its not bad. I filled with hot water from my taps (YAY INSIDE), so it started at ~130*

    Time to hit an average mash temp of 152* was ~17mins

    to hit boil from that was 44mins.

    This was without the graincoat. It hadnt arrived yet. With the coat.

    Cut 6min off reaching mash temp
    Cut 10min off reaching boil

    Depending on how many steps you are doing in a mash and how many times you brew a year this could save you hours eventually of waiting.

    A must purchase if you don't already have one.
