    Ok that makes sense, the pump is pulling the grain together then it absorbs water and expands
    and that causes it to stick. I guess I have been lucky its never been a problem before for me.

  • Posted in thread: Buy a pump or counterflow wort chiller? on 04-02-2013 at 04:47 PM

    trub. Collect the middle creamy layer and pitch direct (that's the healthiest yeast), and
