    What is your filter? A manifold or a braid?I use a 52qt Coleman with a CPVC manifold in the
    bottom, very similar in size. Grain depth is mostly immaterial unless you fly sparge.Did you

    than the a...

    This may be a dumb question so forgive me if it is, but did you get the refractometer
    correction right? What was the brix reading?I got a Brix reading of 9

    You might be alright with your mash (I'm not saying you are, but there are chances).
