Q: Hello, Do you think there would be a problem with the mash and boil sharing an outlet (separate plug same outlet) with a robobrew or grainfather? Thinking of using it as a vessel for sparge water.

A: If you set the Mash & Boil at its minimum setting, 1000 watts, it will use about 8.5 amps. A Robobrew or Grainfather at full power (1600 watts) uses about 14 amps, so combined, this is too many amps for one circuit and is not recommended.

Q: Can the mash and boil be used to do extract also?

A: Yes, but you will need to turn off the unit when mixing the malt extract in, to prevent the syrup from burning on the bottom. So you would get the water boiling, turn off the power, stir in the syrup, and then when the syrup is completely dissolved, turn it back on again.

Q: Hello, How long is the cord that comes with it? What happens if you don't use a GFCI outlet but just a regular three prong outlet? How heavy is the mash tube when saturated with grain? Does it need two people to pick it up?

A: The cord is 5'. It will work without a GFCI but safety will be compromised. The grain basket weighs about 37 pounds when you lift it and twist to start sparging, and is not hard to lift with one person. PS: We are currently out of stock, but will have more around September 4th.

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.
