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).

First All Grain
My experience thus far with home brewing had been exclusively with malt extract. I purchased the Mash & Boil so I could brew all-grain.  My first time went great. The Mash & Boil worked seamlessly. Temperatures held steady during the mash and the boil came up quickly. Things went just like described in the product literature. Can’t wait for my next brew.

great unit
I put this unit through the works. I brewed 60 gallons in this unit from July to August for a wedding. It worked with out any problems. I would recommend this to anyone who would like to get into all grain brewing. We also purchased the sparge water heater with it. Great way to heat up strike water if you are doing multiple batches back to back.

I love my Mash and Boil
I wish I would have got a M&B sooner. Less clean up, no more buying propane, mash water is set and ready when I want it to be. The list goes on. I highly recommend this product.

Mash & Boil With Pump
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!

I know nothing about home brewing but...
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.

Will the neoprene jacket for the RoboBrew 35l fit the Mash and Boil?
No, the Mash & Boil is a bit larger in diameter because it is double wall. The fact that it is double wall means it looses less heat than a Robobrew, so the jacket is not as important.

What size is the tubing on the re-circulation arm? Could you just hook it up to a counterflow chiller directly from that tubing?
The re-circulation arm will accept item J52, 1/2" heavy walled thermoplastic tubing. We recommend thermoplastic tubing as it is best suited for the high temperature of the wort and pressure generated by the pump.

When using the pump to recirculate during the mash, does the lid stay on. I would imagine you would lose a lot of temperature.
No, the lid stays off during mashing.

I bought the Mash and Boil before there was a recirc option. My mashes vary up to 15F from the target temp due to the internal control. Hence, no real control of my mash. Do you have a backfit option to make this unit useful?
The temperature swings you are seeing are just in the 1" pocket between the bottom of the basket and the element. The mash itself is not varying by more than a degree or two. If you look up the Facebook Mash & Boil forum, there are a lot of users who have rigged up inexpensive pumps.
