Outstanding product with poor packaging

Review by Cameron on 5/23/2017

PRO - IT REALLY, REALLY WORKS!: I'm very pleased with the performance. Hit my numbers perfectly on the first batch. I was concerned that it wouldn't hold a strong boil or heat painfully slow, and neither has happened. You'll read that some people are adding insulation, but I can't imagine needing that...unless you want to reach a boil 5 minutes faster? or are brewing on a frozen tundra? CON - PACKAGING: As stated previously in reviews, the box that Williams ships the unit in is not very protective. Mine arrived with a few small cosmetic dents on the front, and the handle of the ball valve had the end of it's plastic coating scratched off, as the handle was poking out of the side of the box. The latter could have been easily avoided if they simply closed the valve before shipping so that the handle isn't sticking out...an annoying lack of attention to detail, but I can forgive it as the unit itself is great.

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!

Great Product

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

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 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.
