I loved my two Grainfather and use to tell everyone how much I loved the device but this app simple put is “useless” to be polite. I expect to do everything manually as this apps simply doesn’t work at all. What a waste of time and money. This app looks pretty but simply doesn’t work. I imported my recipes online but could never get my recipes to sync to the app. I was able to get the software to connect to one of the two Grainfathers but every time I tried to start a recipe it failed. Why??? Grainfather competition is growing quickly and you could be the #1 choice but sadly you look like you are simply trying to put yourself out of business. Why???? I will miss such a great product that sadly shot itself in the foot when it could have kept the lead and grown to be the product that all brewers wished they owned.

Like almost everyone on here, I am sadly giving this terrible app my one star rating. It’s painfully obvious that the company cares more about its social media features than it does about brewing beer. My issue is that when I create a new recipe and spend a bunch of time tweaking it, it disappears!!! I have lost three recipes out of the blue and other recipes will show up with 10 duplicates. Nobody cares about the flashy graphics and the photos of hipsters! Nobody cares about your “tips for tasting” or your other cheesy content. We just want a simple app that actually works to control our brew day. Listen to your customers and redevelop the app!!!!! I am seriously considering selling this thing and buying an Anvil or Clawhammer. Very disappointed!!

The original grainfather app for brewing was such a pleasure to use, just enter the steps hit go and follow along. This new version? I have spent nearly an hour just trying to enter the recipe this is unbelievably convoluted - maybe all this scientific mumbojumbo is useful for brewing scientists and anal retentives - I just want to brew some beer. After some more poking around in the app I found that you can manually control the HW via bluetooth - and some of the built in calculators are handy. Really wish you guy would make a simplified version or area in the app where i can enter in the steps without having to go into minute detail of every step - but maybe that is in there. I’ll keep digging around while I’m waiting for my strike water to come up to temp...

I’ve been brewing with the Grainfather (GF) for about 3-4 years and home brewing for at least 10 years. The Connect GF controller was previously a joy to use with the previous app versions but version 4 has rendered the Gf connect useless. When I get a new phone, the app was automatically updated and I’ve been stuck with this piece of garbage app. I would frankly advise anyone against the Grainfather product because of how terrible the app (GF Community) is. What was previously an intuitive app that would make brewing “press and play” has been become neutered. Please return the old version and burn version 4 with fire, sweep up the ashes, sprinkle holy water over it and bury it in a pet cemetery.

It’s time to step back and ask, “What do the users really want and need?” This app looks like a programmer’s idea of what users want without asking for their input. It has some good features like it is pretty, has community, calculators, tutorials, etc. However, some things like readability, recipe input, connectivity are lacking...that’s what is important. Gray lettering and an 8 pt font? Really? Connecting and running a recipe is iffy. Grainfather was the innovator of small footprint electric brewing. Learn a lesson from a company like Apple which make products that feel good, do what they should well, and can demand the extra you pay. Rework this app and ask brewers outside of your echo chamber what is important.
