I have to disagree with that. If if it is all going down the pipe, there is NO flow through the
grainbed and the mash is over - whether complete or not. If that happens, I want to catch it
and save th...

An arrangement to permit overflow caused by a sticky grain bed to be dumped back into the wort,
preventing a spill, is also present in the Zymatic. It is actually necessary in that system, as

Really? I thought only in a RIMS or HERMS setup is there recirculation. Lacking that, doesn't
the mash sit static in the tun (cooler) unless it's stirred? Then, you might get some limited

If you're up for some reading, you'll find that the mantra of thicker mash = better efficiency
isn't true. I provided this link to you earlier in this thread. I'm guessing you haven't had a
chance to ...

breaker slots t...

if you try to go too thick, you won't get nearly the performance or efficiency you're after.
Ed:mug:Thicker mash = more grain in the basket = higher gravity beers if you can keep the
efficiency up. T...

Is anyone experiencing 3.5 hour mash days and 85% efficiency like the website claims ?
