Do you want to get into mashing but want something simple? The patented Brewer’s Edge® Mash & Boil with Pump 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. Protected by U.S. patent D819,385 S.

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 160° F, the preset heat temperature. After 40 minutes or so, your strike water is 160° 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 153°. Attach the Recirculation Arm and tubing and turn on the pump (leave it on during the hour long mash). Adjust the recirculation flow with the Recirculation Valve so about an inch of wort sits on top of the grain bed during the hour mash.  During this mash time you will need to separately heat 3 gallons of sparge water to 175° in a separate pot you provide.
 
After one hour, turn off the Pump and remove the Recirculation Arm. 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 with a range of 45° F. to 218° F.  It also features a delayed start timer, so you can program the Mash and Boil to turn on up to 23 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.
Convert the Mash & Boil to a still with optional Mash & Boiling Distilling Package (see at right).

So much easier

Review by Josh on 5/12/2019

This makes brew day so much easier than it was before, plus, I can brew all year long. The pump works well, and I use the valve to adjust the recirculation flow.

Review by Jay on 5/25/2019

Works awesome. Saves time and clean up from using a kettle and burner. Temp control works great. Love it

I know nothing about home brewing but...

Review by Paul Mock on 5/28/2019

This makes it easy. I have used a Brew Magic system before but this is far easier and quite a bit less expensive. Have brewed twice and so far no complaints.

Review by Darryl on 7/25/2019

I love it and wish I had purchased it long ago. It was always time consuming and a burden to cook with a outdoor propane unit especially trying to keep the water at the necessary temperature. I also bought the sparge water heater unit. Two thumbs up!

Q: I have two questions, #1 When I brew with more than 12 lbs of grain my efficiency is only 53%, less than 12 lbs its 63% more not the 70% Iam targeting for. Suggestions? #2 The max temp that my Masn N Brew gets to during the boil is cycling between 209F and 211F, enough for a boil but it dosent seem to be a sufficient for a Hot Break. Comments. Thank You.

A: Regarding question 1, vary the amount of strike and sparge water (different ratios). Also, make sure you grain is crushed on the coarse side, as a fine crush will lead to more clogging and less efficiency. Regarding question 2, are you setting the temperature to 217 F during the boil? If you set it for 212, it will cycle to 212, and then turn off and cool 5 degrees before turing on.

Q: I have heard some brewers pushing the limits on max amount of grains. The instructions indicate a max of 15 pounds. What is the reason for this number? What am I risking with a 17 or 18 pound grain bill. Thanks!

A: Overfilling the grain basket could cause it to overflow and clog the pump. We find the unit can handle up to 16 pounds.

Q: Can you use a Brew in Bag bag for mashing inside the basket? It seems that would lessen any clogging of the pump during re-circulation.

A: Yes you can.

Q: What are the electrical requirements for the device with the pump?

A: 110-120 VOLTS AC.

Q: Do any of your brew systems have a built in chiller, or is a separate chiller required?

A: A separate chiller is needed, our item E81 Immersion Wort Chiller works well.
