hi all - looking to make the move from extract to all grain.

I was locked an loaded to get a robobrew gen 3, but have seen a lot of comments regarding quality of product etc, I understand that you normally only hear about the bad experiences. is it worth just saving a bit longer and getting the grainfather? also, if I can get the nano 30l 3vessel system for the same price - what is the best way to go? I have the room for a 3 vessel, im assuming only downside is cleaning? would having the 3 vessel eliminate the need for a sparge kettle?

too many options - ill just order a chicken schnitzel

In my opinion there isnt much difference between grainfather and robobrew, if you buy robobrew from a reputable company, preferably kegland they will look after any issues you have quickly. Grainfather are good for any issues too, they look after you as well. You do get a better chiller with the grainfather and they have options like wifi for the controller, I think that costs extra and honestly to me not a feature I'm really interested in, you shouldnt be walking away from your brewing especially if you have things like pumps running etc, but some people love it.

I find myself using my robobrew all the time just because I'm time poor and the all in one does save a lot of cleaning, space and setup.

I have not used the 3V system you spoke of but it looks pretty good. I love my 3V and it does give me more mash space, but its more work on brew day, which I don't mind if I have the time.

I guess the other advantage of the 3V is easy repairs you can do at home if needed, rather than having to ship off your whole system to be fixed or replaced.

No one can tell the difference in beers made on any of these systems because there is no difference.

It is a hard choice to make when spending big bucks and there is no definitive right answer unfortunately. I'm not sure if you live near a brew shop that does demos but that is a good option, or a local brew club is a good place to look which again can be found by asking at your local home brew shop if you have no luck on google or social media.

Personally I have had no issues with my robobrews, but of course I see the issues some have, but similarly I also see lots of issues people have with the grainfather. They are both made from chinese parts, most, nearly all systems are.

The 3V system you will use your HLT for sparge water so you don't need anything else in regards to sparging.

Wish I could give you a simple answer but its really personal choice.

One good thing about getting a robobrew is it is cheap so if you decide all grain isn't for you you aren't losing a lot of dollars. We are all waiting on their 60L to see how that goes too.

Hope some of that helps!
Cheers mate
