I traded a tap shank for a bag of Maris Otter. Ive finally brewed with it and had a stuck sparge. I was kinda able to recover from it by stiring the mash and using a grain bag to filter the output in the boil kettle.
Is this because I brewed a Pumpkin Ale that was kinda thick (used canned pumpkin) or because of the Maris Otter grain? Ive had stuck mashes before but quickly learned it was bc i had oats stuck to my false bottom. Today I was expecting an obvious 'oh that's why it was stuck' but when I cleaned up I couldn't identify the problem.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks,
