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.

Q: Does the lid that comes with the Mash & Boil have a gasket? Just wondering if I can drill a hole in the stock lid and install a stopper and airlock/blow-off tube.

A: No it does not, it comes with a lid that fits the top, but is not gasket sealed.

Q: I see the Mash&Boil now has cover clips and a Optional Distilling Lid. Can these clips be bought separate?

A: No, these are welded onto the new Mash & Boil.

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.
