No sparge technique
Just one question regarding a no-sparge mash.
Should I avoid re-circulating a couple of quarts before I gather the wort? I know that doing that will result in some grains making it into the boil and fermenter, but I am worried that I won't be able to recapture those initial sugars when I don't sparge.

Strain the first runnings through a coffee filter?

Sounds good. I'll give it a shot. Should have thought of that myself. Guess my brain has softened a little bit.

Just curious... But why no sparge?
