I'm using ten gallon round rubbermaid coolers doing five gallon brews. I fly sparge with a SS false bottom. This is the second AG with my new Barley Crusher and I had a stuck sparge this time. Pleassssse tell me what my options are when this occures?
What I did was ugle, however, I got it running and finished with one point above my projected OG. Beginners Luck, right. What a mess.
I used a coat hanger as I have in the past, but it would not clear with that. My real problems started when I pushed the false bottom off the hose with the hanger. I had to dump the whole mess into the empty brew pot and start over. I did finally get it going. I can see any one of your tips would have been a better place to start. Thanks.
By the way, I came in with an OG one point higher that projected so I was happy about that.
