Q: Can you add a pump to create a Recirculating Infusion Mash System? And if that works could I then manually change the temperature to do a step mash?

A: Some of our customers have done this, although we do not have a kit for this. It is possible to manually change the temperature by just setting a new temperature on the digital control at any time during the mash. This is manual, and the control cannot be programmed to switch temperatures on its own.

Q: I use Brewsmith software and was wondering if you might have already created or have the data to put the mash and boil into the equipment portion of the software?

A: We are working on it. Thanks for the suggestion.

Q: So just got the unit....set it at 166 and waited until it got there. Then when I tried to hold it there, it went all the way to 160. This is disappointing as a mash needs to be more dialed in than that. Any tips?

A: The Mash & Boil has a 6° differential to prevent rapid cycling and wear to the heating element, which means if you set it to 166, it will get there and then turn off and wait until it drops 6° to 160°. It should then turn back on and go back up to 166°. This is generally not a problem when striking the mash, as long as you hit it at 166°, and mix in the grain then.

Q: Heating elements all have a useful life span before they must be replaced. As I read earlier, the coil is not replaceable. What is the repair on this unit then for a burnt heating coil?

A: There is no repair, as the element is welded into the base of the boiler.
