  • This week I welcome back Chris Graham. Chris is the President of MoreBeer, one of the largest homebrew supply stores in the US. Chris has also taught at the Siebel Institute and is a former board member on both the Brewers Association Board of Directors and the American Homebrewer’s Association Governing Committee.
  • We have a brief discussion about Chris’ recent activities and some of the ways MoreBeer has had to adopt their business during the pandemic.
  • Chris starts with an explanation of what an “all-in-one” all grain brewing system is and what the major components are.
  • We talk about the advantages of these systems and why they have become very popular in the last few years.
  • We also discuss the advantages of many of these small counter-top systems for brewing small batches along with their low cost.
  • Chris talks about some of the features to look for in an all-in-one system.
  • We walk through specific system options starting with the Braumeister which is one of the first all-in-one systems.
  • Next we discuss the Grainfather which was perhaps the first system to offer all-in-one brewing at a more economical price point.
  • Next we discuss the BrewZilla which comes in three sizes.
  • We continue discussing specific systems including the Mash & Boil, Digimash and the new Anvil Foundry.
  • Chris explains which system is the most popular at the moment and why.
  • He shares his closing thoughts on all-in-one brewing systems.
