I'm setting up a 10 gallon rubbermaid mash tun, and I'll be doing batch sparging. I'm going to use the stainless steel braid method for lautering, but was curious if the layout of the braid would make any difference in my efficiency.
For example would I gain more efficiency if I were to have a "tee" fitting on the inside wall of the cooler, then have my braid make a "circle" connecting one side to each side of the tee? The circle would of course be flat on the bottom of the tun.
Or should I just do a straight shot out of my bulkhead with no bends?
This is my first mash tun, but I'd rather only spend the time/money once, instead of upgrading it later. Thanks!
