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 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 begins with formulating your 5 gallon all grain recipe (8 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 152°, 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.  If you want to do small 2½ gallon batches, our optional Small Batch Adapter (item J11) is available.

 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 a half gallon or so of hot sparge water at a time into the top of the sparging basket until you get to 5½ gallons. This is easy as the Series 2 features a new grain basket that sits above the rim, making it easy to see the gallon markers. 

Then 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 or X59 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 to centigrade). 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. The vented lid features a removeable handle to convert to a sealed distilling lid with your T500 compatible distilling column.

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.

Note: The lid should not be clamped while brewing, and should be off when boiling. Only clamp the lid when distilling to avoid steam burns.

Great All in One

Review by Wayne on 10/23/2021

I’ve had my Mash and Boil for over 2 years and brewed many batches with great success. You simply can’t beat this unit for the price. You simply have to experiment and know where your temps are in comparison with the built in thermometer. I’ve debated on spending more money for a more advanced unit, but decided this does everything that I want it to do and that’s make good beer without a lot of complicated gadgets!

This is an excellent all-in-one brewing machine. I have used it non-stop for over 3 years. Never had an issue with it. Always brewed really great tasting beers. Would highly recommend to any home brewer wanting to do full grain brewing.

Mash and Boil Review

Review by Ed Walkowski on 10/22/2021

1600 watt heating element burned out quickly and 1000 watt element is very slow to perform the given task. Replacement elements are not available I was told.

Much more relaxed brew day

Review by Geoffrey Mohn on 10/22/2021

I’m very happy with my M&B. It’s great to be able to set the timer and have the mash water all ready to go instead of having to wait for the gas burner to bring mash water to temperature. Also it’s great not to have to worry as much about boil over with an all grain brew. I use a DigiBoil for sparge water heating. Initially I had a problem with the correct amount of water to create a full 5 gallon keg of finished beer. Once I got the water amounts dialed in it’s been very consistent. I’ve brewed 7 batches so far. I’m happy with my choice!

I love it!

Review by Jim Clark on 3/30/2020

I love it!!! It works just as advertised. Made it so much easier to boil the mash and so much cleaner with the inner column. The temperature indicator leaves a bit to be desired.

Q: How can I keep from getting bottom full of burnt on mash and popping off the element? I clean it off between every brew but ias soon as I start I get build up. Anything I can put on it to keep off build up during mash?

A: Fine particles can cause deposits and scorching. Grind your malt as coarse as you can without letting whole kernels through the mill which will help reduce the dust and the burnt deposits. Worst case, a battery powered drill and a wire brush can remove stubborn deposits.

Q: What is the typical grain mill setting for my crushed grains with this mash pot?

A: Grind as coarse as possible while still crushing all the husks. The best way to check for this is open the rollers up until some kernels come out whole, and then tighten up the gap a bit so the whole kernels get crushed.

Q: Is there a Mash and Boil profile for Beersmith?

A: Here is a link to one from the internet. We uploaded one to Beersmith about 5 years ago, but not sure if this is it or not.

Q: I’m having issues getting an active boil with my new mash and boil with pump equipment. I have set the temp as high as 220 F but it only reaches about 210 F and a very low boil. Boil off is only about a half gallon per hour. Any suggestions? Thanks.

A: It should reach 212 F but no higher as it is limited by the boiling point of water. Try a different outlet, and avoid using extension cords. Boil off of 1/2 to 3/4 gallon per hour is typical.

Q: Is it necessary/recommended to recirculate wort with this unit?

A: It is not necessary, you can infusion mash in this unit at one temperature. Some brewers like to drain a quart of so of wort during the mash and mix it into the top of the grain basket for a recirculation effect.
