Q: Can I use this as a fermenter?

A: Yes, after boiling your wort you will need to empty the unit, clean out the trub, and then pour the wort back in. Use the optional distiling/fermenting lid (item L14) along with a #10 stopper (item R61) and an airlock (item E01).

Q: Have read all the comments, but I also know that home brewers are like golfers, notorious liars. This is a very good system, but why haven't you perfected it by putting in a circulation pump? Then you can add all the water at once, no sparge needed.

A: The Mash & Boil with Pump has just been released. See our item B95.

Q: May I set a specific mash temp, say 148 degrees F. and if so what will the +/_ temp swing be due to Thermostat lag?

A: The unit has a 6 degree differential to protect the non replaceable heating element from frequent power cycling.

Q: If you buy the sealed lid, isn’t there too much headspace to ferment 5 gallons?

A: The headspace contains the foamy krausen head and we think it is needed for this purpose.

Q: Anyone know what ER1 is all about, and how to clear it (other than hitting the reset)?

A: ER1 is an thermostat error code, usually caused by the thermostat wire becoming loose where it attaches to the circuit board. It can usually be fixed by opening the unit and reseating the thermostat wire plug onto the circuit board.
