    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
    the wort...

    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
    recirculatio...

    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 ...

    @TexasWine answered that above.No, I don't think so. A standard 3V system allows the grain to
    soak in the entire mash amount. The GF uses more of a "dynamic" mash where the wort is
    continually recircu...

    Thanks for the reply and well wishes, John. I was just looking at your build the other day. I
    loved the pictures that illustrated finishing the inside of the Triclamp ports. And you didn't
    seem to pur...

    Hi guys.Everything is fine with me. I hope to be brewing again soon, as a matter of fact. We
    recently rewired the electrical panels in the house and the garage so that I now have spare
    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 ?

    What mash water ratios are people using and how thick can you go ? 1.25 quarts per pound ?
