    There's two basic bucket methods. In one method one cuts out the bottom of the bucket, so the
    mill is mounted in a bottomless bucket that is placed in a second bucket to collect the milled
    grains. In ...

    I've been doing this successfully since I started this thread. No problems with clogging since
    I leave all the hop trub in the kettle. Never had a blowout or any other issues. I don't use a
    strainer o...

    4 hours all-in for all grain is pretty good. I wouldn't skimp where it counts, but most malts
    are pretty good and will convert by the 45 minute mark.

    At 87% already, you're not going to get better efficiency by crushing finer. Only sparging can
    do that.

    How about some details on the sweet wood-clad mash tun? I'm contemplating making one and
    looking to see how others do it. Thanks.

    The lid is too small to have gas in and beer out simultaneously. You may have to rig some kind
    of way to QD the gas in and beer out through the same port, and repressurize after each pour.

    If I were going this way, I would attach a handle or something to the false bottom so that you
    could pull it out from under the grain after mashing. This way, you could let it all out the
    bottom witho...

    Here is the manifold for my new mash tun. The cooler wore out, so I'm going to be using the
    former HLT keg for mashing. I'm calling it the Figure 8 Manifold. I kept it small so that it
    would stay lowe...

    It says maximum temperature output is 140 F. I'm sure it can be hacked to go higher, but that
    will void the warranty. Also, the sticky wort issue should not matter as these things (at least
    the ones t...
