I did stir the initial run but it came out so darn cloudy I thought, that maybe I shouldn't be stirring after the initial introduction of water and grain. So once I started sparging I did not stir. That right there is probably my biggest problem.
I'm sure this is all personal preference but should I go ahead and build a HLT so I can start fly sparging or should I stick with batch sparging til I get it down? I'd prefer to keep my equiptment at a minimum. Swmbo is already whining about how much space my "brewery" is taking up.
