Description

Elevate your brewing game with the 220V 17 Gallon Gen 4 BrewZilla. This cutting-edge system combines more power & capcity with innovative features like wireless connectivity via WiFi & Bluetooth, allowing you to heat faster while you control and monitor your brew day, ensuring precision, convenience, and exceptional beer batch after batch!
 
  • WiFi / Bluetooth enabled RAPT Controller tracks your brewday and automatically uploads detailed information to the RAPT portal
  • The top mounted RAPT Controller can be tilted upward for easy viewing, or detached from the unit to mount it on the wall or placed on your bench
  • Mirror polished dome shaped bottom with center drain — get every last bit of wort into your fermenter while the perforated bottom screen filters out 95% of hot break and hop matter
  • Make larger batches or higher gravity beers! BrewZilla offers the largest malt pipe capacity for units in its size range, and the Gen 4 unit has a 30% larger malt pipe compared to the previous generation
  • Perforated bottom on the newly designed malt pipe allows for improved mash recirculation flow without sacrificing efficiency
  • Element power percentage can be adjusted via the RAPT Controller. Go full power to heat up quickly, or dial it down so you don’t overshoot your strike water temp
  • The built-in pump is plumbed to both the recirculation and arm and the bottom ball valve. Recirculate wort during your mash, then close the recirculation valve and pump wort to your fermenter via the bottom valve
  • Pair with the RAPT-enabled Bluetooth Thermometer, allowing your BrewZilla to calculate a core mash temperature reading and more accurately control temperatures and mash steps
  • More RAPT-enabled accessories are coming, and future firmware updates can be downloaded to the RAPT Controller itself over the internet

WiFi/Bluetooth Enabled RAPT Controller
The RAPT Controller is mounted to the top of the boiler body, allowing for easy operation when you have the unit set on the ground. The controller can be tilted upwards to give you an even better view, or it can be removed from the BrewZilla entirely if you’d prefer to mount the controller on your wall or lay it down on a workbench. From the controller, you’ll orchestrate your entire brew day. Program mash steps, dial in element power, and operate the integrated pump all from one screen.

But the RAPT Controller is much more than a beautiful, full-color display switch board. Once synced to the RAPT Portal, you’ll be able to track, record and monitor your brews online. No need for handwriting notes or punching brew day details into your phone – all of the data from your brew is automatically logged to your portal profile. This information doesn’t just include your mash profile; it also captures detailed information about your element power and pump activity, opening the door for very precise repeatability.

And the RAPT Portal isn’t just a digital archive for your brew days. With your BrewZilla powered on, you can control your brewery from virtually anywhere using your phone’s web browser. Not sure when you’ll be home from work or your kid’s ball game going into extra innings? No problem! Before you head out, simply log into the RAPT Portal from your phone and tell the BrewZilla to start heating your strike water. Along with remote control, the portal enables you to program alarms and push notifications for all of your boil additions. We’ve all been caught up with a side task and failed to throw in that yeast nutrient or clarifying agent at the end of the boil, but the BrewZilla has the back of even the most forgetful brewer!

But wait, there’s more! In addition to WiFi connectivity, the RAPT Controller is also a Bluetooth gateway device. KegLand is currently developing various Bluetooth devices such as the Bluetooth Beacon Thermometer and other sensors which will be compatible with your brewery upon release. The RAPT Controller is able to receive information from Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) devices, adjusting its processes based on this new stream of information while simultaneously logging it to your RAPT Portal. With the Bluetooth Beacon Thermometer, for example, you’ll be able to feed temperature readings from the top of your mash bed to the controller. The controller will then compare this reading with the main temp probe reading at the base of the kettle and adjust element cycling based on these combined readings.

Finally, the RAPT Controller WiFi connectivity allows you to update the controller’s firmware with a single click. Take advantage of new features and accessories as soon as they become available by simply keeping your BrewZilla connected to your local WiFi network. And again, the WiFi is already built-in! No need to come back for an expensive add-on accessory down the road.

High Capacity Malt Pipe
With an approximately 41.5 lb capacity, the BrewZilla can mash nearly 20% more grain than similar sized models of the Anvil Foundry and Grainfather G70. If you want to fill your fermenter with more than a 5-gallon batch worth of wort, or brew the highest gravity beer recipes, the BrewZilla is the brewhouse for the job. And the included malt pipe is just the beginning. If you want to expand your brewery’s grain capacity even further, KegLand makes Boiler Extension Kits and Extended Malt Pipes for that very purpose. The malt pipe features a perforated section at the bottom which improves mash recirculation flow without sacrificing efficiency.

Concave Base with Center Draining
Leave no wort behind! The concave base with center drain means you’ll be able to extract every last drop of wort to your fermenter. If you’ve brewed in a traditional flat bottom kettle, this center drain may be a bit perplexing at first. Many brewers are used to whirlpooling after the boil to pull hop matter into the center of the kettle, then transfer out using a pick-up tube that pulls from the kettle wall in order to avoid sucking up the solids. But fear not! One of the key features of the BrewZilla is the false bottom protection screen. This screen avoids the need for doing a whirlpool, filtering wort as it transfers and blocking more than 95% of hops and hot break from getting sucked into the pump. This not only prevents blocked pump issues, it also increases the efficiency of your brewhouse by eliminating kettle loss from wort that may have otherwise been left behind.

Ultra Low Watt Density Elements
The concave base on the BrewZilla also allowed for larger heating elements with significantly lower watt density than other breweries. When a lot of energy is coming off of a small element, the local temperature near the element can be so high that it scorches the wort and causes caramelization. Lower watt density essentially means you can produce lighter color beers that would otherwise have fallen victim to caramelization effect. It also reduces that chance of boilovers and reduces stress on the elements which extends their life expectancy.

Easy Access Built-In Pump
The built-in pump allows you to recirculate your wort during the mash for improved efficiency and more even temperature distribution. But it can also be used to transfer your wort from kettle to fermenter rather than relying on a gravity feed, and with the optional CIP Rotar, you can used the pump to clean your BrewZilla (or fermenter) after every use. During your brew day you’ll be able to control the pump from the RAPT Controller with a dedicated button for turning the pump on and off. Another feature you’ll find on the controller is adjusting the pump flow. This doesn’t control the actual volume of the flow (you can do that from the ball valve located on the recirculation arm), but rather cycles the pump on and off automatically based on your setting. At 100%, the pump remains on continuously. But at 80%, the pump will cycle to be on 80% of the time and off 20% of the time. This may not be a feature that every brewer thinks they need, but it’s an excellent way to avoid running the pump dry accidentally, as the time the pump is off allows recirculating wort to filter through the grain bed and back into the pump inlet.

If you flip over the boiler, you’ll find the magnetic drive pump and all the plumbing is right at your fingertips. This means you don’t have to disassemble the base in order to access the pump for cleaning or maintenance if required. It also means the plumbing can be changed more easily too. For instance, the unit comes as standard with the plumbing from the pump feeding both the recirculation arm and the transfer valve, but you change this so the tap outlet bypasses the pump if you prefer.

MoreBeer!'s Final Word
We’ve been selling all-in-one brewing systems ever since they first hit the market, and we have to say that the Gen 4 BrewZilla is not only the most feature-packed unit ever made, it’s also offered at an incredibly competitive price point when compared to other systems. You’ll get all of the cutting edge Bluetooth technology you’d get with the Grainfather and at an exceptionally lower price tag. Plus, you get the WiFi capabilities as standard, rather than as a $100 add-on accessory. When it comes to mash recirculation, that’s yet another built-in feature on the BrewZilla, and the pump can also be used for transferring and CIP cleaning. The Foundry has a great starting price, but if you want to unlock its full potential, you’ll need to spend another $100 for the recirculation pump kit. What’s more, no other system in the same ‘weight class’ has the same grain capacity. And if the standard capacity isn’t quite enough, the BrewZilla can be easily upgraded with a Boiler Body Extension Kit and Extended Malt Pipe. When you purchase the BrewZilla, you can feel confident that you’re investing in a top shelf system and all of the critical features you’re expecting will be included.

Perfect for Distillation
If you want to expand your lineup of homemade libations to offer Spirits in addition to Ales & Lagers, the BrewZilla makes an excellent pot still! Add the Distillation Lid upgrade and pair it with an AlcoEngine Copper Reflux Condenser or Copper Pot Still Top. AlcoEngine Stills have been selling on the home market for years and offer some of the most affordable, beginner-friendly stills you'll find.

I am buying this in the near future and plan to add a 220v line. What is the amp size required for the breaker?
frank koester on Sep 11, 2022
BEST ANSWER: It's a NEMA 6-30R plug so 30amp breaker, GFI. Then you'll also need 10 gauge wire to support 30amp. I currently have an Anvil Foundry running 220v. Sadly, it's 20amp and I'm running 12 wire. So, I need to change out everything.
Can you brew 5 gallon batches in the 17.1 gallon system?
RICHARD BERGERON on Oct 30, 2022
BEST ANSWER: Yes. Down to 1.25 gallon batch.
The top screen for the malt pipe that I received fits inside the pipe rather than sitting on top. Is this correct or did my 65 L come with a 35 L top screen?
Fred Hollingshead on Mar 25, 2023
How long is the power cord on the 65L brewzilla?
Nathaniel Dickinson on Mar 11, 2024
BEST ANSWER: Roughly 60" stretched tight (not advised for long term brewing). Get yourself an extension cord if you're going to be brewing anywere away from the 220V outlet
With the pickup at the very bottom is there a way to limit trub (pellet hops, hot and cold break) transferred to the FV?
Mike Wood on Aug 30, 2022
BEST ANSWER: The system has a false bottom filter that is claimed to trap 95%+ of trub and hop matter. From the videos I’ve seen with test runs, this claim is solid. The false bottom and conical bottom were one of the main selling points on this unit to me.
The RAPT thermometer is currently listed as OUT OF STOCK. Is it safe to assume if I preorder the gen 4 brewzilla that it will come with a thermometer? Thanks.
Brian Diehl on Sep 11, 2022
BEST ANSWER: The system comes with an integrated thermometer near the bottom, similar to most other all in one systems. The RAPT Bluetooth thermometer is an add-on that allows you to take a second temperature reading at the top of the mash, or wherever else you’d like. The system will work just fine without it.
I’m seriously considering the Brewzilla Gen 4 65L system. However, I have no interest in an immersion chiller. I have two CFC’s already. Can I order without the IMC?
Also, what about additional options such as the steam hat and pump update?
George Parker on Aug 1, 2022
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. All of the Gen 4 Brewzillas will come with an immersion chiller. Since they come boxed like this from the factory, we cannot sell them without the immersion chiller.

At this time we do not have any updated steam hat information. The diameter is the same as the Gen 3.1, so those accessories will work with this unit.

This includes the newly routed pump, and you could replace it if you need to. We do not have any other pump update at this time.
I live in Montana and would like to continue to brew outdoors in the winter. What is the lowest outdoor temperature that this can effectively operate?

Poor Whirlpool
65L 10 gal batch
Cooked 8 batches so far

Bit of a learning curve. The software takes a bit of getting used to. You cannot (AFAIK) set up heating power percentages remote while setting up a profile. You can certainly set temps and time though. While the profile is running (mash or cooking), you need to manually set heat power percentages on the screen. Not a big deal, but it would be nice to have it so as to avoid a boil-over. A boil-over is a mess, I'll tell ya that. Lots of nooks & crannies at the top for gunk to get stuck in.

During mash or cook, I keep an eye on it through the remote RAPT portal. I also have a security camera looking at the top to catch a potential boil-over.

The good part is I can work inside at my home office and monitor the cook remotely on screens. It really is a lot easier with this, versus the standard pot on a fire method.
The mash is easy, set the heat and pump percentages to 40% and drop the hose on top of the screen.
Cook is also easy, I have a profile set to hold at mash temp for 60 minutes, then another hold until I press a button to go to the cook phase.
Same thing after the cook, I tell it to drop down and hold at 170 until I add hops for whirlpool and then press a button, insert whirlpool arm, and hit the button to continue for 45 min whirlpool.
Here is where the big CON is, the whirlpool is super weak, pump is horrible, only gets it going enough to see it turning, barely. You must remove the chiller coil but it barely increases the swirl. This to me is NOT a whirlpool. There is a well known Aussie that shows you how to hook up a better pump in an online video on a well known site. But darn, it should have come with a pump that can whirlpool!!!
Temp seems to be off too, My boil setting is 218 F and 85% heat power.

Something else I would like to see is the ability to run the RAPT screen on the cooker with 120 volt so you can upload profiles and run an overnight pause. I built a 10X12 beer shed only for brewing and use generator power. It'd be nice to have it use 120v for those reasons and not have to have the generator running (I don't do the overnight pause because of this).

Overall, I wouldn't buy this 65L until they upgrade the pump to something that can make a usable whirlpool. But if you do buy it, you have a good unit. Be sure to get the neoprene sleeve, it holds the temps better.
Give your unit a good look over, I had a half dollar sized dent right in the front where it is very visible.

Brewzilla Gen 4 is awesome
My son and I have brewed for 10+ years and made dozens of batches. It was a chore and messy. This Brewzilla has lived up to its reputation. It does a great job and is easy to use and clean.
We are now makine 10 gallon batches. The beer comes out great

Big fan of the Gen 4 BrewZilla 65L
I've been brewing on propane for 10 years and finally pulled the trigger on an electric brewing system. My first brew was a simple 5 gallon pale ale and it went smoothly. Still learning some of the Bluetooth programs but seems to be a very good system for the price. Looking forward to making many great beers with this system!

Worth the wait!
I waited 5 months to get it, and it was worth the wait! It’s like having an extra brewer with you..(except they’re not drinking the beer!) it’s a must buy if you want to eliminate most of the little mistakes we make during a mash day..

Nice upgrade from the 35l, but still a first edition.
I had been running a 35l Robobrew 3.0 for years without issue and this is a nice upgrade. It heats FAST. I was up to strike temp before I was finished filling it up. From mash to boil took about 20 minutes and was rolling. I cut back to 75% for boil. Mash in was easy being so big but dialing in the pump was problematic. Cut the flow too much and it was stop pumping intermittently, open it up to clear it and grain flow through couldn't keep up. I used to internal pump to move the wort to a conical fermenter without issue in a 5 foot line.

Cons: Bottom screen was improperly made (confirmed via Kegland) and doesn't fit right/won't come out. No replacement available in the US.

Pump is underpowered for it's size. Again Kegland has an upgraded pump, but not yet available in the US.

Side perforations in malt pipe are good in theory but the lower feet place those holes above the unit and if wort flow is fast or moved with a paddle when sparging, wort sprays out the side and onto who/what is nearby. The lower feet should be moved above the perforations.

Finally the lower ball valve is cheap and it's mounting location is flimsy. I am looking into some kind of weldless bulkhead to replace it with something better.

TIP: Purchase the distillation lid, buy a 1.5" TC weldless bulkhead for the center hole and drill a small vent hole in the lid and you can set up a really nice CIP system using a submersible pump or really good brew pump capable of at least 7/GPM. I had it looking spotless in 15 minutes without touching anything.
