Ive been away from my hobby for a while, and am starting back in slow with some extract batches. When i brewed all grain years ago i fly sparged.
Im building a Igloo Cooler HLT and MLT and plan on batch sparging. I am looking to use a pump to sparge. After the first runnings, how do you guys sparge? IS it ok to just pump the sparge water in through the outlet, since you are mixing up the grain bed anyways?
