Grainfather Grainkids

Funk Estate Rock Steady XPA Grain Kit



Get ready to jazz up your next brew with the Funk Estate Rock Steady Xtra Pale Ale All Grain Kit.

Funk Estate is the work of three dynamic beer enthusiasts who share a passion for beer. They saw their beginnings in Wellington, then started a brewery in Auckland and have since moved to Mount Maunganui where they brew alongside Mount Brewing Co. 

Rock Steady is one of Funk Estate's most popular beers on the market today, so let your customers know they will be able to brew this themselves at home on the Grainfather, share with friends and keep it rockin' all night long.

Mangrove Jack's Jacked Up APA Grain Kit




A classic style and arguably the forerunner to the development of quality beer in the US. This is a slightly different take on it using the same classic malt bill, but using a mixture of old and new hops for a punchier flavour and aroma.

FLAVOUR: In this big beer, the initial toffee notes are then coupled with a fascinating rose petal character, pink grapefruit and herbal yet slightly earthy character.
AROMA: Resplendent aromas of pink grapefruit, melon, passion fruit and lemon.

Black Jack Dry Stout All Grain Kit



As simple as a stout may seem to design and brew, getting the balance of roasted and toffee characters right with the exact amount of bitterness is a fine art. This stout is the product of years of tweaking to brew a stout that we think is just about perfect.

Aroma: A combination of coffee, chocolate, molasses and prunes with a hint of smoke.

Tasty As Helles Lager All Grain Kit (Temperature Controlled Fermentation)


Helles brewing is the epitome of German brewing, there’s good brewing and then there’s helles brewing. Nothing short of perfection is the goal of making this Bavarian lager.

Tasting Notes: Restrained floral notes and freshly zested lime and orange marmalade aroma. Perfectly balanced with an elegant maltiness and restrained floral and citrus hop flavour.

Yeast: M76 Bavarian Lager
Hops: Pacific Jade, Wakatu, Pacifica
Brew Stats: OG: 1.049 FG: 1.012 ABV: 4.9% IBU: 24 EBC:6 VOL: 23 L

Pale Monk Belgian Witbier


The grain bill for a witbier is fairly fixed, it should contain continental pilsner malt and ummalted wheat, in addition to this, a proportion of oats are often used to add some body to the beer. One of the biggest mistakes made when brewing witbiers is overuse of botanicals, but in this case we've provided exactly the right amount of coriander, orange peel and chamomile.

Flavour: Light, dry and zesty with an underlying refreshing orange and coriander character.

Aroma: Classic aroma of coriander and orange peel.

Yeast: M21 Belgian Wit

Hops: Pacific Jade

Extras: Coriander, chamomile, orange peel

Brew Stats: OG: 1.045 FG: 1.010 IBU: 15 EBC: 6 ABV: 4.5% VOL: 23 L

Grain Weight: 5.88 kg

Designed to be used with the Grainfather.


Sly Red Rye IPA All Grain Kit


As with most IPAs this is brewed strong with an enormous addition of hops full of character. However, there is also a thoughtful application of caramel malts to create a maltier and darker coloured beer that helps the hops to become characterful in a slightly different way.

Flavour: On the palate the beer is a pleasing cacophony of textured caramel malts, firm bitterness and juicy hop goodness. The beer finishes smooth and dry with a lasting cleansing bitterness.

Aroma: This red rye pours a deep red with a creamy head, your nose is immediately assaulted with a light pine sap and tropical fruit punch aroma.

Yeast: M44 US West Coast

Hops: Nelson Sauvin, Pacific Jade, Cascade, Green Bullet

Brew Stats: OG: 1.063 FG: 1.012 IBU: 60 EBC: 30 ABV: 6.5% VOL: 23 L
