Hey guys. When I put down my first brew the other day and strained the liquid from my steeped grain into the wort, I used a colinder instead of a finer strainer. As a result of have small bits of grain in the brew. Will this settle to the bottom after I rack and not end up in the final product when I bottle?

Any other day to get rid of it? The test jar has a fair bit of sediment in it at the moment.


Cheers

It'll probably settle out, but if you are worried, go spend $3 on a GMK Inline Filter (do a search)

I used a colander for my earlier partmashes kaitai. Some bits of grain did used to go through. They just seemed to ettle to the bottom.
Once you rack to secondary it should clear out fine.

Hi Kaitai

As kinky as this may sound. Next time you strain your grains in a collander try getting a pair of pantyhose, boiling them thoroughly to remove residual dye and putting it over the top of your collander as a liner.

Makes a good make-shift partial mash grain bag. Not bad for straining hops or wearing out on a Saturday night too. :huh:

For this one the easiest course is to wait for it to settle out then rack.
