    Out of curiosity, what temp was your mash at? I had the same problem recently and I was
    somewhere between 165 and 167. I should have tried harder to bring it down (trying for 160).I
    ended up at 1.030 ...

    The way I did it was totally different! I split the wort evenly, as described, and the hops
    evenly, so that both pots were roughly of equal composition. Then combined. My concern with
    adding some of t...

    I fully expect to have a sour dry beer; I was just posting to see if anyone has experience in
    regulating how sour the beer gets, etc...

    I do this without a problem. Run off five gallons into your kettle and the remainder into a 3
    gallon cooler. Boil off a gallon and a half and top it up with the wort you have in the cooler.
    Start your...

    and the fermentation stalled at about 1.031 due to the high content of unfermentables. In lieu
    of dumping the batch (blasphemy!) I racked it over grapes in a secondary to use the lambic
    yeasts on the ...

    The braid's SS, I'm thinking of cutting it shorter and affixing a heavy SS nut to the end.
    Typically you want to see the braid long enough to cover the bottom of the tun, and no longer,
    correct?Also, ...

    Attach tubing on the outside? On the draining end of my ball valve?

    I'm using a 3/8" connected with FIP to attach the braid; the FIP has a 1/4" opening which may
    be leading to the slow lauter speed. I don't believe it would cause THIS slow of a lautering
    however.

    First all grain over the weekend. Build my MLT from a igloo 50 quart, 30" SS braid, and 3/8"
    ball valve. Found braid floating in grain bed in beginning, I think I have to affix it to the
    bottom of the...
