Q: What is the height of the temp probe in the Series 2 M&B. I have a series 1, that I bought in 2017, that probe is short (about 7mm). I ask because mine sometimes gets covered in trub and then the temp controller reads and responds incorrectly.

A: The probe height is the same in the Series 2 as it was in the Series 1.

Q: If I wanted to replace the valve or add a quick release…what size would work? * I have the first generation mash and boil without pump and sparge arm.

A: You cannot replace the valve except with the exact same replacement valve, otherwise leaks will occur through the double walls. As far as quick release, the valve is threaded 1/2" male BSP, and 1/2" female BSP or NPT fittings will fit like our item L70 Snaplock Adapter.

Q: What wort temps are safe to use the pump with? I want to recirculate to create a whirlpool around 180F. Is this okay?

A: While the pump can handle the temperature, we do not recommend running the pump after the boil as the hop matter could cause the pump to clog.
