Description

Are you looking for an awesome, easy-to-use, single vessel system to brew 10-gallon batches?  The BrewZilla is the answer! This all-in-one electric brewery is the next generation of Robobrew units and comes with various improvements to electronics, components, handle design and many other aspects. The BrewZilla features built in elements for heating and boiling, programmable mash schedule and delayed start, a built-in pump for recirculation, an onboard water-resistant control panel for setting and monitoring temperatures, a removable grain basket, and a built-in spigot for transferring. The compact design makes this unit easy to store when not in use.  Not brewing 10-gallon batches every brew day? No problem! The BrewZilla works just as well for 5-gallon batches, and with so much power, you'll get your temperatures up even faster.

To get the Wort Chiller Connection Kit for free, add the item to your cart along with the Robobrew / BrewZilla and use code ROBOKIT at checkout.

New accessory! Check out the BrewZilla Whirlpool Arm, which uses the unit's internal pump to recirculate and spin the wort, improving hop extraction and chill times. No more stirring!

Automatic Step Mashing! 
One of the coolest features of the BrewZilla is the ability to program the unit with up to 6 individual temperatures and durations so you can step mash precisely how you desire. Simply press the "S1-S6" button to select the stage you want to adjust, and use the temp, time and +/- buttons to program the stage. If you have less than 6 stages in your mash schedule, program the stages you want to skip with 00:00 as the time and the controller will automatically move on to the next step. When all the stages are complete, the Robobrew will sound an alarm and hold the last set temperature.

The programmable stages can also be used to set a delayed start of up to 23 hours in advance so that you can have your water hot and ready to go when you get home from work or wake up in the morning. In order to do this, fill the unit with strike water and program the controller with two steps. Step 1 should be programmed at a temperature lower than the unheated strike water (so the elements will remain off), and the duration should be programmed for however long you want the delay. Then program Step 2 with your desired strike water temperature and a duration of 1-2 hours, giving the Robobrew ample time to heat up and giving you a margin of error in case you hit the snooze button the morning of brew day.

This very capable 15amp brewery has over 3 kilowatts of power so you can get up to boil in no time. 220V outlet required! The BrewZilla has been made with ultra-low watt density elements, which means less caramelization and also makes this unit capable of producing very light beers with very little maillard effect. This is also particularly useful for high gravity beers that can get some degree of scorching in other electric breweries with higher watt density.

Triple heating elements run off of a single 220 volt plug and have individual switches allowing for more control over the heating process. The elements are 2000, 1000 and 500 watts for a combined 3500 watts! Use all three elements when you need to ramp up the temperature quickly, either to quickly get to your mash temp or to rapidly go from your mash temp to boiling. Use only one of the elements when you want to hold a desired temperature.

Built in magnetic drive pump to easily recirculate the wort during the mash. We recommend getting some silicone tubing to go with the recirculation arm. This allows you more control over the recirculation and you can then use the pump to transfer your wort to your fermenter.

The digital control panel makes it easy to see the current temperature and set the temperature you want. You can also set a delayed start of up to 23 hours in advance so that you can have your water hot and ready to go when you get home from work or get up in the morning. The digital controller is also water resistant so don't worry about spills or some water dripping down the side. This controller is built for brewing!

The brewery also includes a stainless steel malt pipe with false bottom allowing you to easily shift from mash tun to boil kettle during your brew day. The malt pipe includes a handle to lift it from the BrewZilla and tabs at the base so you can set the malt pipe over the system to let the wort drain out. It also has feet at its base to raise the malt pipe slightly off the base and help prevent clogging.

The included stainless wort chiller is shipped with bare ends so you can set it up for your situation. We list below the most common tubing and fittings to connect to a hose, hose bib, or faucet.

What MoreBeer! loves about this product: Homebrewing is trending in the direction of all-in-one, all-grain brewing systems, but there are few options when it comes to brewing 10-gallon batches. The Robobrew BrewZilla not only allows for 10-gallon batches, but the cost is half of the next comparable system. We've brewed on all the systems and we can truly say the Robobrew series is the easiest to use. We feel confident that a lot of first-time brewers could buy this and use it with ease. At the same time, quite a few of our experienced, all-grain brewing staff are buying these units to brew at home. The BrewZilla is considerably compact for a 10-gallon system because the pump is built-in at the bottom of the unit. When not in use, the system can be packed up into a box that is 24" x 24" x 34" tall and moved around with ease, which makes it perfect for guys and gals that have space constraints. All in all a great buy and highly recommended. Please note you will need a few extra pieces of hardware to connect the wort chiller and at least 2' of silicone tubing for the sparge arm.

Use the Pump for More Than Just Recirculation!
One of the surprisingly handy features of the Robobrew is that the recirculation pipe features a female camlock. This allows you to hook up other accessories and use the unit's pump for more than just recirculating wort. With a male camlock and silicone tubing, for example, you can use the internal pump to push wort through a plate chiller or counterflow chiller. Check out our selection of camlock fittings here.

What is the max diameter for a better wort chiller the one that is included isn't very good?
David DePaoli on Jan 8, 2020
BEST ANSWER: I'm not sure of the net inside diameter of the vessel, but I've been pretty satisfied with the chiller provided. Two issues I've found and how I dealt with them: (1) it's stainless and not copper, so the heat transfer isn't as good. But, I think this is well countered by creating a whirlpool chiller using the recirculating arm. The built in pump creates plenty of flow to create good movement around the chiller. (2) The in/out bends on the stainless steel make the chiller sit pretty high in the kettle. If you're making 5gal batches (instead of the full 10), only about half of the chiller is in the wort. That's an easy fix, I cut off the bends and added the tubing and claims directly to the new upright ends. Now it sits on the false bottom and the coils barely poke out the top of the wort on 5 gal batches. Works great. Just my thoughts on how to improve performance with the chiller I already paid for.
Can you use this to convert to the proper plug? 14-30P Male 4-Pin Dryer Plug To 6-30R Female 3-Prong Receptacle Outlet Box NEMA Power Cord Adapter/Converter
Brian Herbert on Mar 25, 2020
BEST ANSWER: It would be easier/cheaper to change the outlet. As long as you have a 220 wire and plug (for a dryer etc) you should be able to find the corresponding outlet at a hardware store for around $3. Thats what I did. Took all of 5 min. There are adapters out there if you are looking toi maintain your dryer current dryer cord to swap between the 2, but youd be better off to change dryer cord to match robobrew and change the outlet. That should run about 15-20$ vs 30-60 for an adapter.... Depends on what your goals are though...
What is the maximum grain bill recommend for the brewzilla v3?
Ron Harding on Apr 12, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hi Ron, the recommended max grain bill is 35 lbs.
Could you use 2 of Morebeers Hop Spiders at the same time on this system?
Jason Rister on Apr 23, 2020
BEST ANSWER: There's definitely room for both, but the chiller won't fit if you're using 2 spiders during whirlpool.
The cord sounds a bit short for where I’d have it. Is an extension cord okay for this or is that a no-no (assuming I know not to trip over it)?
HockeyHomeBrew on Aug 12, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes! I have an extension cord made to specs of the power cord going to an outlet.

Andrew LeFaivre on Jun 5, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hi Andrew - This specific Robobrew requires 240V. For the information that is requested, we recommend speaking with an electrician.
thinking about upgrading for the power but only gonna brew 5 gallon batches. Anyone brewing 5 gallon batches with this?
Scott Childs on May 29, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hi Scott - There shouldn't be a problem with brewing 5gal batches in the Brewzilla, just make sure you keep an eye on your boil off rate.
Can anybody show me a picture of the wiring of a US model? Is the board different? I have a AU model and would like to change the plug to a 220V US plug.
Angus Manford on Apr 18, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Not sure what board you are referring to. I stopped by an electrical supply store for a 220 plug. Told the guy what I was up to. He said they run on 50hz in some of those countries and our 60hz was likely to burn it up. I contacted kegland they said they thought it would be okay. I did and it seems to work fine. Still missing secondary screen, which is on parts list and not in box. Kegland decided to handle it by ignoring me. Had stuck sparge in first run.
What is the warranty & are the electric elements replaceable should they fail in the future?
PAUL ALDRICH on Apr 12, 2019

What is the minimum batch size recommended for this set up? Would it be safe to do 6 gal batches in?
Coy Patrick on Apr 8, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hi Coy - Take a look at this thread: https://www.reddit.com/r/Homebrewing/comments/98p6yr/robobrew_users_smallest_batch_size/

There shouldn't have a problem doing 6gal batches.
Is it safe to run PBW on the pump?
Nathaniel Y Canson on Mar 22, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hi Nathaniel - Yes it's safe to run PBW through the pump.
Is there a temperature controller available that fits the 65L Brewzilla plug? The plug head for this unit is rare in the US.

Best thing I’ve bought for making great beer.
Been brewing with igloo coolers and burners for 6 years. Made the switch to this because I already had 220v plug for an electric car and was waiting for an all in one that could accommodate 10g batches. I’ve done five brews in this now and it’s awesome! So convenient, easy to plan, manage, clean. Temps always spot on, can prep water in advance, pump really easy for transfers, whirlpool, etc.... there’s only 3 negatives, both manageable to work around (1) if you’re doing a 5g batch of a smaller gravity beer, you’ll have to do a full mash volume otherwise your water won’t be above the grains. (2) if you’re doing a really big beer at 10g you’ll possibly need to plan for some separate small mash in a cooler. I sometimes brew 12g of an imperial stout for a barrel and beer to do this work around. (3) for sparging you’ll need to think ahead. I usually heat my sparge water first in the system and transfer to an igloo for later

This and a temp controlled conical is all you’ll need.
May 4, 2020
Outstanding!!
3 brews in already. all 5 gallon with large grainbills. Could not be more pleased with this unit. I did get the whirlpool arm from someone who had it in stock and that is a money maker right there. does multi step mashing beautifully. The chiller on the other hand was built incorrectly. One of the ends comes up the outside of the coil but would be significantly better if that arm went through the inside of the coil. It won't fit in a standard 5 gallon bucket.

Huge improvement in efficiency and time.
Have brewed about 6 batches so far with this. The best purchase I have made in my 3 years of brewing. Moved from a three tier system to this. Been getting 78-80% efficiency with this, I would recommend the brew jacket to hold temperature. Everything works so well, my only thing I’ve come across is sometimes the pump with clog when I have a lather grain bill. My way around that is to use the whirlpool arm (another accessory you must have) and have the pump onwhile mixing my grain, then disconnect and put the sparse arm on. If it does get clogged during the boil I’ve found an easy way to unclog by either blowing air or water down the pipe and that seems to do the trick. Overall this is a great all in one brew system that has made my beer so much better. Have taken it to the limit with 36 pounds of grain, although I wouldn’t recommend that it can be done. I’d also recommend putting the unit on something you can move, I have it on a piano dolly with a flat surface so it’s raised up off the ground a little so I can get to the controls a little easier. It’s great pre-setting everything so in the morning it’s ready to go. Also recommend getting a hoist for this if you are doing more then 20lbs of grain. Check out harbor fright, got one for around $15 and holds up to 400lbs. Being able to cut my brew time down to around 4.5-5 hours with prep and clean up involved is huge. Cheers!

Solid step to all grain brewing
After one brew session I'd call this a solid step up to all grain brewing. Unit seems to function well and heats to a boil faster
than anticipated. A few issues..... Box arrived in good condition but unit was a little battered inside with some minor denting and slightly bent parts. Maybe a box outside the original packaging is in order. Instruction book provided could be more comprehensive. Much better brewing detail available on line for this unit with a little searching.

Great all-grain system, great price.
High quality all-grain system, have brewed with this following an upgrade from gas kettle 5-gallon system, using mash tun/hlt. The kettle is simple to use, easy to assemble and clean after. No burning noted following the initial batch, temperatures held constant. Very pleased. Excellent price point for anyone interested in upgrading to 10 gallons, or switching to a smaller footprint.

Very Great Value
I wish I bought this system earlier in my brewing endeavors. This single vessel system is super compact, and does a fantastic job turning your milled grains into wort. I have brewed 2 batches and hit 70% efficiency on both. I was a little scared to make this purchase just because the price was so low compared to other similar systems. But I am sure happy I pulled the trigger!! I recommend purchasing the chiller tubing kit.

7 gallon lager with OG 1.055 no sparge needed!

11.5 gallon Double IPA with OG 1.068 4 gallon sparge needed.

I was surprised with the heating time... 30ish minutes to mash temp, 30ish min from mash temp to boil, and 30ish min chilling down to fermenting temp.

This system definitely lacks some tech features when compared to other single vessel systems, but if your willing to be a little more involved (push a couple buttons) you save a TON of money. This system is $800 less then a grainfather… But can handle twice the payload! do I really need to say anything eles??
