Q: Is it necessary/recommended to recirculate wort with this unit?

A: It is not necessary, you can infusion mash in this unit at one temperature. Some brewers like to drain a quart of so of wort during the mash and mix it into the top of the grain basket for a recirculation effect.

Q: The temperature controller says it can do 45F. Does this mean that this mean it has the ability to cool, or does it heat only? If heat only, how would it hold up to the entire unit being kept in a thermostat controlled fridge at about 65F?

A: No, it does not having cooling ability. If you set it at 65 degrees F. it will work fine.

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.
