Help guys a stuck sparge at 1:20pm Saturday
What type of equipment are you using? How many lbs of grain?
Do you have any rice hulls on hand? If so, rinse about a half pound with boiling water in a strainer and throw them in. Stir, and try again.
Sometimes just blowing on the hose gets it going again. Most of the time I have too close the valve, stir the mash and vorlauf. The grain bed can too compacted.
No, rice hulls.
I used my compressor and blew back into the hose, still no flow.
I think I wave have to drain with a paint strainer mesh
Blow on the hose with a turkey baster. Or just use your mouth. It will all get boiled in a minute anyway.
EDIT: Oh I see you tried a compressor. Forget my suggestion.
Ugh!!!! My first all grain did not start off well. Ended up using a pain strainer. My pre-boil gravity was 1.024. It was supposed to be 1.036.
How bad is this?
The wort is still boiling away. About another 20 minutes left in the boil.
Take the tube out of the braid!
