Q: I just received the Mash and Boil Series 2. There is no mention in the manual of using the 1000 Watt setting. I assume that this is still the setting to use during the mash. Is this correct?

A: The 1000 watt setting comes in very handy when distilling, as it allows for a very slow temperature rise from 170 to 203 degrees F, which is optimum for the smoothest spirit. It is also there in case you are also running a sparge water heater on the same circuit, to prevent blowing a circuit breaker. It can be used during the mash, although we generally keep ours on full power for all brewing if you have the juice at your circuit breaker.

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.
