I "sparge" as well. takes a few extra minutes to pour some hot water over the top of the grain
and buys me 1-5% in efficiency. sometimes i don't even keep it hot. pull it off before dough in
and then ...

I understand all that. He needed a filter that had 3.5 inch feet to fit over the dip tube in
his BH kettle. The BH kettle was chosen for its relatively more narrow profile than typical 20

I have a 400 micron basket and wouldn't want to go any smaller. I had an air bubble form
underneath on the first brew because the pump was not throttled enough. Anything smaller than
that for grain is...

also. What did yo...
