Crafting A Better Beer

The worlds first and only fully modular, all-in-one, all grain countertop brewery. It has a 10G capacity to make around 6G of beer at a time, and does this all by using readily available household power. This isn’t a modified coffee maker, but a system designed from the ground up to deliver amazing craft beer.  Every beer style is possible with Unibräu, as it can handle even the heaviest grain bills.

The System

We sourced the best possible material for our Unibräu and believe that this is a piece of equipment that will stand the test of time.  The entire brewing system is modular, and modifiable, using standard brewery connections meaning it can be serviced for life.

 Kettle

Made from nearly indestructible 1.0mm thick 304 stainless steel with a 5.0mm tri-clad base and silicone covered handles, our brew kettle stands on it’s own as possibly the single best brew kettle on the market, but also integrates with our stainless grain basket to create our single vessel brew system.  Our kettle is designed for future integration with traditional brew setups, and can be used over flame, induction, and stovetop.

 Connections 

We chose what commercial brewers prefer, and outfitted the entire system with 1.5" tri-clover compatible fittings, which makes disassembly and sanitization of the Unibräu quick and easy.  These standard fittings make the system modular and expandable.  Want to add a brewing element or install a more powerful one?  Want to move the temperature sensor to the pump outflow?  Thinking about adding a separate sparge vessel and pump?  No problem!

Controller

The temperature control unit just plugs into your GFCI protected kitchen outlet, and it’s easy to set your desired mash temperature, allowing you to do a manual step mash. It features a pump controller and cooling output, meaning this controller can easily manage your fermentation schedule.  Accurate temperature sensing is through a port in the kettle, with our 304 stainless tri-clover compatible sensor.

Pump

Our included magnetic drive pump features a stainless steel pump head, for durability. The pump is designed to be run continuously during mashing, delivering a constant flow of wort through the grain bed, which increases efficiency.  The pump is also used during the cooling process with the included counterflow wort chiller.  Unlike our competitors pumps, these are IP55 protected, meaning they are perfect in a wet brewery environment.  

Grain Basket

Our unique lift and lock mashing system, allows you to control the ratio of grain to water and maintains a consistent temperature throughout the grain bed.

The 304 SS grain basket is perforated at the bottom and the grains are separated from the wort when mashing is complete.   .

This also makes it possible to brew a huge range of grain bills, with the addition of a sparge step to increase the efficiency of your mash, or to help manage a super high gravity brew.

Counterflow Wort Chiller

Our amazing counterflow wort chiller cools your wort as it is being pumped into the fermenter. The hot wort goes one way, and the cold water goes in the opposite direction, delivering instantly chilled wort into your fermenter, while using less water.  Included with the wort chiller is the necessary connections, tubing, and faucet adapter.  We designed this chiller with larger orifices for easy flow through the chiller, giving you better flow and maximum efficiency.

Finally, the Unibräu system is compact, and all the components fit neatly inside the brew kettle.

We’ve been continually hearing from our customers, fellow brew club members, and friends that there is a real need for good home brewing gear, something that could make things easier. We wanted to make something that could last forever, was easy to use, and would truly stand the test of time. Our Unibräu countertop brew system fills that need, making the brewing process simpler, faster, and more enjoyable.   Over the last 2 years, we’ve gone through many revisions, we’ve tested many ideas, received input from brew masters, our customers and our brewing companions, and we think we’ve arrived with a design that solves all of the questions that needed to be answered.

Risks and challenges

Like many Kickstarter projects, there are risks with bringing a new project into production.
Many Kickstarter projects have run into issues when they launch as they might not have managed production, or properly managed a timeline. As a result these projects are abandoned or delivery timeline commitments are missed.
We at Bräu Supply are an established company, and we realize taking products to market is hard, but we've always delivered and we know how it's done.
