Q: When using the pump to recirculate during the mash, does the lid stay on. I would imagine you would lose a lot of temperature.

A: No, the lid stays off during mashing.

Q: I bought the Mash and Boil before there was a recirc option. My mashes vary up to 15F from the target temp due to the internal control. Hence, no real control of my mash. Do you have a backfit option to make this unit useful?

A: The temperature swings you are seeing are just in the 1" pocket between the bottom of the basket and the element. The mash itself is not varying by more than a degree or two. If you look up the Facebook Mash & Boil forum, there are a lot of users who have rigged up inexpensive pumps.

Q: Will this product do programmable steps for mash conversion?

Q: What is the specific threading for the circulation arm/pump? I want to attach a 3/8th barb to the pump so I can whirlpool with silicone tubing during hopstand.

A: 1/2 " NPT. Our product L86, L11, and L83 would make a 3/8" nipple that would screw onto the pipe the recirculation arm screws onto.
