Q: Will it operate on a 15 amp circuit?

A: Yes, since the Mash and Boil uses 14.5 amps on 110 volts. You would not want anything else connected to that circuit though.

Q: Is it possible to fly Sparge with this u it or is it set up as a batch Sparge only? Also is it possible to Vorlof to clear up the wort before Sparging into kettle?

A: The Mash & Boil with its elevated grain basket is like a hybrid between fly sparging and batch sparging. You can use a simple Vorlauf process by elevating the grain basket after mashing, and use the valve to pour off a half gallon or so which you then deposit on top of the grain bed in the elevated basket.

Q: 1. Can it be programmed to advance through a multi-step mash with 2 or more temperatures? 2. What is the distance from the bottom of the kettle to the 4 gallon mark?

A: It cannot be programmed to change temperatures at set times. To change the temperature, you have to use the thermostat controls for each temperature change. It is 9" from the bottom of the kettle to the 4 gallon mark.

Q: Can you adjust the boil temp? As I am at a high elevation (5675ft), my water boils at 202 degrees. I don't need the extra 10 degrees. Also, does the the Mash & Boil reduce the temp automatically once it's achieved a boil?

A: You can set the boil temperature anywhere you like. We would recommend setting it to 210° F. for your location, if you set it at 202° the built in differential will cool to 195° or so between cycles. It does not reduce the temperature once it reaches a boil, but you can adjust the boil temperature at any time.

Q: Is it possible to preform a kettle souring using the temp controler over a period of a few days.

A: Pretty hard, because the Mash & Boil shuts off after 3½ hours and has a maximum run time of 4 hours before you have to reset the timer. So we would say no, this would be not be practical.
