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.

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.
