    Brewfather Profile for Brewer's Edge Mash & Boil

    Hello! After successfully completing a couple of brews from LHBS kits using a Brewer's Edge Mash & Boil, I've been interested in getting a deeper understanding of how recipes are made and how to brew better beer in general (e.g. water adjustments, etc.). Through my research, Brewfather came up a...

    Klarstein (Mash & Boil) Kettle Burn Marks

    Wow, it’s been a minute since I’ve posted on here. Finally getting back into brewing after an 8 year hiatus. Equipment has changed since then and I’m excited to try something other than my cooler and kettle to change it up (and maybe save some time). That said, I bought a Klarstein (mash and...

    WTB Brewers Edge Mash and Boil

    Looking to pick up a used mash and boil that someone no longer needs or doesn’t used. Either pump or no pump option. Houston TX

    Appropriate Pump

    Would this be a fairly good pump for recirculating with Mash and Boil, and also possibly recirculating during cool down?

    Questions about all-grain using Mash and Boil

    Hello again, I'm about to acquire a Mash and Boil, and I'm pretty excited. I've never done an all-grain, only extract, and the M&B seems pretty user-friendly. After extensive reading (staying up till 3am several nights in a row), I've got some questions about achieving desired efficiency...

    Looking for feeback

    Hi Everyone, I've been working on some brewing software with a few friends of mine the past few years and we have a version that's working for building recipes and getting brew day directions. It's totally free and is currently in beta at the moment. We'd really appreciate any feedback...

    Should I "sparge" a full volume mash?

    Happy Cinco de Mayo! I brew in a Mash & Boil all in one system which I have modified by adding a pump for recirculation of my mash which greatly increased brewhouse efficiency. I typically brew 4 gallon batches so that I can ferment under pressure in a corny keg. For this reason, it is very...

    Get better mash efficiency with 2 kettles

    Hi, i want transfer wort into separate kettle after mashing, add hot water to original kettle to rinsing the remaining sugars from the grain and then add there main wort volume back. Should be kind of batch sparge method, but without boil kettle. My second kettle isn't good for boiling, but ok...

    Newbie Adventures with Mash&Boil

    I just bottled my third batch over last weekend so I'm just getting started, but I'd like to share my approach and open for any feedback in making even better beer. I went straight to All-grain and use stainless as much as possible- Mash&Boil, Anvil SS Fermenter, Keggco 6Gal boiler and bottle...

    Anyone using the mash and boil or robo brew?

    I'm looking at getting one of these systems to do ebiab brewing of primarily 5G batches and would like to hear feedback from folks who have owned either of the systems. I generally don't brew beers over 7-7.5% abv, so I don't have large grain bills generally and like the simplicity of the biab...

    Use a bag with Mash & Boil - or not?

    I received a Brewer's Edge Mash and Boil as a birthday gift from my wife this year. I haven't used it yet. My brewing history is extract -> 3 tier all grain outside 10 gallon brews -> BIAB glass cooktop 2-3 gallon brews (kitchen). I hit my numbers every time with BIAB. I am reading some...

    Compensate or pull through?

    I recently brewed my second ever all-grain recipe. My first all-grain brew was a borderline-disaster, even though the resulting beer ended up quite drinkable. I felt a lot more confident and made less errors for my second attempt - progress :) I read Palmers “How to Brew” (an excellent book)...

    Efficiency problems, influence of flaked wheat and oats.

    Hey everyone. So I brewed a belgium wit the other day with a OG of 1.050 which I finally hit for the first time with my equipment set up. The grist consisted of rougly 15% wheat malt, 15% flaked wheat and 20% flaked oats.. the rest was pale malt and some dextrine. My next brew I was aiming for...

    All Grain BIAB

    I'm interesting in doing a 5 Gallon Batch of a hefeweizen. I just bought the grain as well a brewing bag to clamp over the sides. I know i need to not tie it off and clamp it so i can stir to avoid clumps. My question needs a little background I only have a 5 gallon kettle, If i was to make the...

    Would anyone buy the Robobrew over the Brewer's Edge Mash & Boil?

    I've seen a lot of talk about these two systems, and read some really excellent reviews (like Brad at, here and here). For the time being, let's ignore that the Robobrew comes with an immersion chiller and has an option for a pump*. In terms of the basic functionality, my readings...
