So Im getting close to being ready to brew with some keggles and have a question about water height and dip tubes thats been bugging me. So Ive got a false bottom and dip tube in my MLT. I need about 3 gallons of water to cover the top of the compression fitting that attaches my dip tube to the keggle. If I dont have at least three gallons I cant start the siphon process. What do I do if I for some reason I dont have at least 3 gallons in my MLT? Maybe I had a stuck mash and got some of the liquid out, but am now below 3 gallons. Or maybe a recipe calls for a small volume of liquid for the sparging, like 2 gallons or something.
Can I restart the siphon with an auto siphon? How do you get around this problem?
