Q: Can I use this as a mash tun only? How much wort is below the false bottom?

A: Yes you can, there is 1/2" of space below the sparging basket (it has a sparging basket instead of a false bottom). This 1/2" holds about 1/3 gallon of wort.

Q: Can you do a manual step mash with this?

A: Yes, but it is purely manual, you will have to change the temperature set point each time you want to raise the mash temperature. It can be done, there is just no automation involved.

Q: Can you add a pump to create a Recirculating Infusion Mash System? And if that works could I then manually change the temperature to do a step mash?

A: Some of our customers have done this, although we do not have a kit for this. It is possible to manually change the temperature by just setting a new temperature on the digital control at any time during the mash. This is manual, and the control cannot be programmed to switch temperatures on its own.

Q: I use Brewsmith software and was wondering if you might have already created or have the data to put the mash and boil into the equipment portion of the software?

A: We are working on it. Thanks for the suggestion.
