    One of the reasons I went to this system to be able to move clear wort into the kettle.

    That looks fucking awesome, you must be happy so far.
    Has it been a pretty stress free brewday?

    How did you go with the Sparging? You need about a inch if wort above the grain, and adjust the speed of the transfer to brew kettle such that it is the same as the sparge water coming in. Good luck. I'm jealous of your setup. Obviously you work hard and have earnt it.

    Got spot on volume and efficiency some how.
    Easiest brewday I've ever had.
    Cleaning was a breeze and no lifting.

    Really happy with the sparge manifold and the ss falsey.
    No grain at all got pat it.

    Brewed a golden ale with all centennial. I've got some bry-97. Never used it so I'll give it a try.
    Usually gone with liquid yeasts but I've been wanting to see how this dry stuff goes.

    Nice. What Brewhouse efficiency did you end up with?
    Do you also have a SSBrewtech fermenter?

    Thanks mate. Looking forward to brewing again.
    Such a pleasure to use this system. How fast it heats up and the BCS control.

    The mash temp was pretty much keeping up with the HLT temp which surprised me.
    Mash temp followed the HLT by about 1 degree so there wasn't much waiting after ramping from 36 ( mash in) to 65.

    I have a water flow meter coming. I plan to set that and have water go from meter through HLT coil and straight into mash.
    Will be very accurate with volumes then.
