Q: The 2.5G Wit recipe listed in the Mash&Boil Blog states 3.5 gallons pre-boil with 1G boiled off after 60 mins to make 2.5 gallons. Does this result in 2.5 gallons in the fermenter or should I plan for around 2.2 gallons due to the space under the spout?

A: We ended up with 2.5 gallons in the fermenter. Keep in mind the space under the spout is full of trub. You will have to tilt the Mash & Boil slightly to get the last bit of clear wort out, but you will end up with about 2.5 gallons.

Q: How would you suggest using the Mash and Boil to do a batch sparge? Seems like it might be tricky with the elevated grain basket having a false bottom.

A: The Mash & Boil is not designed for batch sparging, as it has a sparging basket that elevates. You also cannot do brew in a bag (unless you use the sparging basket and line the basket with the grain bag). If you take out the sparging basket and line the unit with a grain bag, it will set off the ER4 error code because the bag will block heat circulation.
