    Are you looking to 'control' or 'measure' the rate?I measure my rate of fly sparging and then

    how I do it! I can tweak strike temps, do step decoctions and raise to mash out temps without
    ever adding hot water or using direct flames. Usually I just do single step mashing but I
    always raise t...

  • Posted in thread: Mash tun with auto-stirring on 06-10-2006 at 02:32 PM
    In my case, I use a steam ring at the bottom of my MLT for step infusions. Stirring helps make
    consistent temperature through the mash. During the rest at 168f, no stirring is done and the
    bed has tim...
