Q: Sorry for all the questions... I've read that there is also an issue with the temperature being off by 5-10 degrees and that is is also being addressed in the design. I guess I'm a few months from purchase and wondering if these will have been fixed.

A: This is due to the thermostat being at the bottom near the element. As far as we know, this is not something that will be changed soon. The best way to judge temperature with any of these systems is with a handheld thermometer either in the recirculated wort, or in the top of the grain bed.

Q: How do you clean the pump? Do you have to open the unit and disassemble it?

A: To clean the pump, clean the Robobrew and fill with clean water or sanitizer, and run the pump for a few minutes. You do not have to disassemble the unit.

Q: 1) Can the internal pump be using to push the wort through an external counterflow chiller? 2) Does the pump need to be primed?

A: Yes, you can hook up a counterflow to the top of the pipe, the valve on top of the pipe has standard 1/2" threads. Yes, the pump needs to be primed, but it primes itself, as it is below the boiler so it is automatically filled with fluid when the unit is filled.

Q: How hot would the bottom of the unit get? Too hot to set on the kitchen floor without something for it to sit on?

A: No, it sits fine on the bottom of any floor. The main thing is not to get it wet on the bottom where the electronics are.
