How to Brew A British Pub Style Ale in the Grainfather

Don’t forget to subscribe! We’ll be making more Grainfather, homebrew, and DIY videos soon!

Some days you just have to make a really tasty Grainfather brew. This is my favorite tried and true Pub ale inspired by a Fuller’s London Pride. I wanted to make a video that shows what a Grainfather can do, while also showing what I do to make the same beer twice. There are some really easy ways to consistently make a beer. I also use my Catalyst Fermenter which is great for propegating and harvesting your leftover yeast so you can re-use it. If you have any questions, feel free to shoot us a comment!

Emily and I also smoke a chicken in our Smokehouse Products Little Chief. It’s an electric smoker that is super simple, lightweight, and easy to use.
