Last minute I realized that if I start the runnings very slowly during vourlof and then go full drain that might be the way to go, is that correct????
Any input is appreciated
Yeah, that's the way I do it and in 431 batches I've never had a stuck runoff. Just crack the valve while you vorlauf. After the grain bed is set, open it up. And make sure you actually have a SS braid, not a plastic one!
