Default Stuck sparge solution...

I got tired of waiting for my wheat batch to drain...Hit it with a few air compressor blasts up the drain...
Took a blast every couple minutes for 10 minutes...Finished up running like a champ...Boiling down now...

I have had a sparge or two that got real slow. I just added more boiling water and stirred vigorously. The flow got back up to speed and my efficiency went up.

With a Wheat, I add some rice hulls to make up for the lack of good hulls in the wheat malt.
