Default Relax, don't worry, my a**

Brewed my first all grain today. Couldn't get my sparge going. I made the Flyguy MLT with braided hose over notched plastic tubing. After trying to drain the wort for 1.5 hrs, I had to empty the MLT into a separate container, remove the plastic tube and used plastic ties to clamp to the nipples. It's now flowing nicely. But my wort was sitting in the mash for 2+ hrs. Oh well.

It'll still be the best beer you ever brewed. Promise.

+1 My first couple runs with the braid didn't go very well either. And 2 hours in the mash isn't a big deal, don't worry!

I'm sorry for being curt, but it seems i see stuck sparge posting when people keep the rubber hose inside. I use a stainless steel braid inside a coleman xtreme cooler and it works flawlessly. Just the braid.

Me & BeerPressure have the same set up, Braid & Coleman.

I've never had a stuck sparge except with a pumpkin beer, with pumpkins in the mash.
