Q: My mash and boil should arrive any day now, I am so excited to try it out. What have you found is the ideal Mill setting? I have been doing biab and currently have my Mill set at credit card width. Not sure if this is too fine to provide good drainage.

A: Credit card width is a good place to start. I would go with this for your first brew.

Q: What is the actual boil off rate.

A: We get a little more than ½ gallon boil off during an hour boil.

Q: Will the RoboBrew jacket fit my Mash &Boil?

A: Not very well, besides the Mash & Boil is double wall, which eliminates the need for the jacket (jackets are used on single wall units like the Grainfather and Robobrew).

Q: So, if I have the older Mash and Boil without lid clips, what are my options ? Would you sell the clips with, say, install instructions or a template or something ? Would really like to use the distilling equipment but can't afford to buy a new unit. HELP

A: We do not sell the clips separately, but the new distilling lid fits the older Mash & Boils, but you would need to find a way to secure it or clamp it down.

Q: I would guess that the mashing process would cause some grain pieces to go through the bottom of the basket. Does a Vorlauf process where you run out wort and pour it into the top of the grain basket result in a clear wort for the boil phase?

A: Yes, some husk particles do get through, and pouring a quart of so of the first runnings off the sparge into the top of the grain bed will reduce this. There will always be some husk particles that get through, however.
