This kit allows you to upgrade your current Grainfather to include the newer pipework and extras we are currently selling online. NOTE: You do not need this if you are buying a Grainfather online.
- Discharge pipe with ball valve and safety valve
This also includes for free all items from the Free Upgrade Kit;
- Recirculation pipe
- Counter flow wort chiller connection
- Grain stopper
- 2x Pump silicone tubes
- 4x Silicone tube fixing rings
- Bag of silicone O rings, and seals
The advantages of the pieces included in these kits are as follows:
- New coarse thread disconnect fittings that eliminate cross threading and make removing fittings quick and easy.
- On/off valve has been relocated to the discharge pipe which makes adjusting the flow through the chiller easier.
- A shut off connection has been added to the discharge pipe which removes the need for fittng the brass cap. (This is a male-female connection so requires a new recirculation pipe and new connection for the chiller.
- Pump moulded silicone tubes with rubber fixing rings which will avoid potential for leaks.
- Spare O rings in case you need them.
- Grainstopper – this new piece will replace the aluminium cap that prevents grain from falling down the overflow pipes. It also has a rolled groove which allows the overflow pipes to be extended to their maximum without separating completely.
