Well I didn't hook it to pump but just using gravity and draining it while sitting level on the counter into the sink left behind just short of 2 quarts of water, I think hooked up to the pump it should draw it down much further.

I may need some. Not anytime soon though I just had to get some work done on my wife's car and it set me back a bit. I am currently looking to build a smaller electric brewery

Bill,

I just saw this on another thread this might be the way to go???

Might not be a bad option. I think the stuff is moveable so you can set it to dump just on top of the grain. The other part I have been thinking of is I would want to open the lid to look inside. I am still trying to figure out how to punch a hole in the side up at the top.

Yeah I might just use a spade bit I am sure that it would drill through pretty easy not sure how thick it is will find out soon enough I guess, maybe someone who has used this or drilled through the lid on one of these already will chime in. Yes it is flexibile and it can adjust to lay on top of the grain bed.
