Posted in thread: No Sparge Question on 12-09-2013 at 06:59 PM
I'd like to know what you're trying to achieve by doing a "mostly" no sparge with a 1 gallon
fly sparge. Of course you can do it but how well it does what you're hoping happens is
depending on what yo...

First... determine if you have an existing 30a or 50a circuit available. If not, find out if
you have space in your main panel for a 2 pole breaker..Get situated with a GFCI spa panel

If batch sparging with 185F water, don't I start releasing tannins and other undesirables from

While you COULD sparge with cold water, there's really no benefit to doing so. Just drain the
