Is ice necessary? 

Yes. We highly recommend using an ice/water mixture. Keeping the water at a cool, constant temperature prevents air bubbles from forming in the water. These air bubbles are produced when the water temperature changes and they can sometimes slow or stop the valve. You can also brew in the refrigerator to help reduce the air bubbles, but we find ice works the best. It should be noted that the idea is to have ice in the tower throughout the brew cycle. Adding room temperature water on a hot summer day will most likely melt the ice quickly. We’d suggest making your best estimate for ice throughout the cycle.
