I've done a ton of searches and can't seem to find the information I'm looking for. I figured with all of the automated systems being built here, this is a good time to start a cleaning conversation.
We recently built an E-HERMS Kal Clone, and are finding cleaning to be a big hassle after each batch. Are there any techniques or advice you have for cleaning 20 gallon electric kettles (Blichmann) without having to move them?
We especially had trouble with the MLT false bottom (removing grain particles) and the boil kettle hop stopper. Cleanup took a couple hours and we had water everywhere.
We tried to use the pumps to our advantage, but it proved to be inefficient.
