I batch sparge in a 70qt cooler. I do 10 gallon batches now (5 gallons of big beers like Doppelbock and Barleywine).
tap 1 - Summer Stout 6.6%
tap 2 - American Pale Ale 5.1% WLP001
tap 3 - American Pale Ale 5.1% Nottingham
SWEET stripped FSR on the wall, rode one of those for a season and loved it! Nice ride even by today's standards.
Oh yeah, nice setup also
Love the speaker set up. You gotta have power to it for the pump.. mine as well.
I will likely be stealing that idea.
I have a HERMS system and use the the kettle with the heat exchanger as the source for sparge water.
Ex fermentum, scientia.
My system has two five gallon coolers...one with false bottom and thermo well...the hot liquor tank with just a valve. My fly sparge arm is from NB. I love my little system. I get great beers, and that's all that counts!
