Description 

Do you want to get into mashing but want something simple? The patent pending Brewer’s Edge® Mash & Boil makes it easy. No need for an outdoor burner, complicated brewing stand, or a 220 volt special circuit - it plugs into any 110 volt GFI household outlet. The Mash and Boil’s exclusive double wall stainless construction conserves heat to achieve a rolling boil with only 110 volts and 1600 watts, and its precise thermostat and internal sparging basket lets you mash and boil in the same vessel.

A typical brew day with the Mash & Boil begins with formulating your 5 gallon all grain recipe (up to 16 pounds of crushed grain can be mashed), and then heating your strike water to 162° F, the preset heat temperature. After 40 minutes or so, your strike water is 162° F, and you mix your crushed grain into the sparging basket already inside the Mash and Boil. The mash will cool to 152° or so, and then you set your thermostat to 150°, cover, and let mash for 1 hour. During this mash time you will need to separately heat 3 gallons of sparge water to 175° in a separate pot you provide. A thermometer hole is provided in the lid, in case you want to monitor the temperature of the top of the mash with any long probe analog or digital thermometer.
 
After one hour, lift the sparging bucket and lock on its included legs, and let the malt sugar drip into your Mash & Boil, which has now became a boiling pot. Turn the thermostat up to 218° F. and give it about 40 minutes to heat to a boil. During this time, ladle one gallon of hot sparge water at a time into the top of the sparging basket until you get to 5½ gallons. Now remove the grain basket, and when the boil begins, add your hops as per your recipe. Boil for 1 hour, and then cool with a suitable wort chiller (not included, our item E81 works well as does any immersion chiller that is up to 11" in diameter). Or use the stainless valve with ½” hose barb to run the wort through your external chiller.

The Mash & Boil features an adjustable thermostat (switchable from Fahrenheit to Centigrade) with an adjustable run time preset at 3½ hours for safety. It also features a delayed start timer, so you can program the Mash and Boil to turn on up to 24 hours after setting. For example, load it with strike water, and have it set to be hot when you come home from work to save time. Intended for 5 gallon batches, maximum capacity is 7½ gallons. 28” tall closed, 40” tall with basket, 14” wide. A 5' power cord is included.

Great system
I'm an experienced home brewer that was looking to brew indoors when the weather wasn't ideal and this little unit did the trick.  I've got two brews with the mash and boil and have been very pleased. It has a nice rolling boil and the delayed start allows me to wake up with my strike water already at mash in temp.  Just remember that when mashing the temperature that the unit reads is not the temp of the grains, but rather the temp of the liquid surrounding the mash pipe, and its this liquid that keeps the mash/grains at a steady temperature.

First All Grain
I can use the Mash and Boil in the kitchen.  It takes up little space.  It's easy to use and clean.  What a great deal for $299!

Great Product
My first all grain batch is going great. Excellent product! Probably couldn't afford to go all grain otherwise.

Novice Brewer
I purchased the Mash and Brew after trying to brew with whole grains using other methods, I am 100% pleased with how easy it is to brew a 5 gallon batch using the Mash and brew pot, I'm a novice brewer still fairly new to brewing I like how easy it is to use compared to other methods, there was a little more fluctuation in temperature during the cooking cycle than I thought there should be but after contacting customer service my questions were answered in a timely manner and resolved, Thank you for a great product!

Can't wait to brew again!
I live in an apartment and don't have much space for brewing but this unit allows me to do 5 gallon all grain in my kitchen. The single unit saves valuable space in my kitchen. Plus the timer on it saves time. Waking up to water already at 165 saved me so much time on brew day. Wake up, dump in the grains, and then finish waking up until the mash finished. I can't wait for my next brew day!

The 2.5G Wit recipe listed in the Mash&Boil Blog states 3.5 gallons pre-boil with 1G boiled off after 60 mins to make 2.5 gallons. Does this result in 2.5 gallons in the fermenter or should I plan for around 2.2 gallons due to the space under the spout?
We ended up with 2.5 gallons in the fermenter. Keep in mind the space under the spout is full of trub. You will have to tilt the Mash & Boil slightly to get the last bit of clear wort out, but you will end up with about 2.5 gallons.

Hi, i wan to buy this sytem and use it in europe (220V). Does the system support 220V input? Or am i going to need a converter? Best Regards, Garry.
No, it only supports 110 volts.

How would you suggest using the Mash and Boil to do a batch sparge? Seems like it might be tricky with the elevated grain basket having a false bottom.
The Mash & Boil is not designed for batch sparging, as it has a sparging basket that elevates. You also cannot do brew in a bag (unless you use the sparging basket and line the basket with the grain bag).  If you take out the sparging basket and line the unit with a grain bag, it will set off the ER4 error code because the bag will block heat circulation.

What is the minimum amount you can boil with this unit?
A 2.5 gallon batch is as small as you want to go with this unit.
