Description 

• Simple to use
• High quality components throughout for dependable operation
• Versatile - Mash, Boil, and Distill with optional Distilling package
• Two Year Warranty

Do you want to get into mashing but want something simple? The patented 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. 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 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 with a range of 45° F. to 218° F. (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.
Convert the Mash & Boil to a still with optional Mash & Boiling Distilling Package (see at right).

Mash & boil
Grains had trouble straining. Temp fluctuates a 5 degrees either way. Solid product easy for cleanup. Recommend a pump for circulation.

Awesome
I was looking for an easier way to brew in the wintertime.  This works perfectly.  Instead of brewing 10 gallon batches in the garage, I can now easily brew 5 gallon batches in the kitchen.  This makes all grain brewing so easy.  I have used it 3 times in 4 weeks. Great product.

Great system, join the group
I've been brewing for close to 20 years but had the M&B for a little under a year.  It's definitely a nice, streamlined way to brew.

What is the lowest temperature I can set, like if I want to do a kettle sour? Could it be set down to 100F?
Yes it can be set to 100 F or lower.

Can I use this as a fermenter?
Yes, after boiling your wort you will need to empty the unit, clean out the trub, and then pour the wort back in. Use the optional distiling/fermenting lid (item L14) along with a #10 stopper (item R61) and an airlock (item E01).

Have read all the comments, but I also know that home brewers are like golfers, notorious liars. This is a very good system, but why haven't you perfected it by putting in a circulation pump? Then you can add all the water at once, no sparge needed.
The Mash & Boil with Pump has just been released. See our item B95.

May I set a specific mash temp, say 148 degrees F. and if so what will the +/_ temp swing be due to Thermostat lag?
The unit has a 6 degree differential to protect the non replaceable heating element from frequent power cycling.
