Posted in thread: Sanke Mash Tun - Figure 8 Manifold on 05-19-2015 at 04:27 PM
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...

The water coming in at higher pressure than 30 psi only means that you would not have to bleed
the pressure in order to fill the keg. That is only true for the first bit of water. As it
