This is a really well designed and manufactured piece of kit. I have made 5 brews so far and it's simple to use and great to have everything all in one, although I would also recommend buying the sparge water heater (which can also be used to collect cooling water and re-use for cleaning). Small and very large grain bills can be more tricky (under 3.5 kg or more than 7kg) but it's perfect for a normal brew and great fun to use.
After I did my first brew in my grainfather my old three vessel system went immediately on eBay !! The grainfather is so easy to use has a very small foot print yet produces exceptional results. My wife and friends love the beer I've produced and I can't believe how good it is too. Home-brew-online provided me with nothing more than an exemplary service with next day delivery. Cannot recommend the grainfather nor home-brew-online enough
