Q: Do you recommend a particular sparge arm for the M & B, susceptible as the Fermentap or something else? Thanks!

A: We just dump sparge water into the top a half gallon or so at a time, and do not have any problems with efficiency. If you are using a pump, something like the Fermentap or even a simple float ball on silicone tubing would work.

Q: What do you do if you get condensation in the controller? Is the unit wrecked?

A: No, moisture has found its way inside the base which could be due to water under the base or a leak. Typically this happens when you place the unit on a wet surface, and the heat from the unit heats the puddle it is lying in, and moisture gets in through one of the bottom holes in the base. To get rid of this, unplug the unit and turn it upside down. Leave it for 5 days to dry out and the moisture will disappear. This also could be an indication of a leak. A leak can be caused by the valve back nut not being tight enough. Check the back nut with a wrench to make sure it is tight to make sure this is not the problem.
