Brewer's Edge Mash & Boil All Grain Brewing System
1 Review Hide Reviews Show Reviews
Easy setup and instructions. Mashing worked quite well. Set the timer up to heat the strike water so that it was ready roll when I got off work. Depending on how compact your grain bed is I would not recommend raising the grain basket and fly or batch sparging with it suspended. The main issue I had with my first brew was very fast flow through the grain bed and out the bottom mesh of the basket. Since sparging requires a separate vessel anyway, I might recommend dunk sparging. You could even try fly sparging, with the basket still in the kettle, just by draining into a pot positioned below the spigot and regulating the flow out. The point is you have some options, but I would avoid sparging the way the instructions say, otherwise your efficiency may suffer, or in my unfortunate case you might need to use additional sparge water and a longer boil to get to the correct volume and OG. Also note: BIAB may not always be possible with just 7.5gal capacity, depending on recipe and batch size. As far as the boil goes, it does pretty well for 110V and 1600W . I suspect some of the 10 gal systems available might be underpowered for a bigger batch, but it works alright for this 7.5 gal system. Overall: good value and worked pretty well the first time with some sparging adjustments. I think the Mash & Boil will be a time-saver for me.
