Break that sparge up into 2 sparges.1st one 2.25-2.5G 180-85 degree water. This will get you to
170.2nd 2.25-2.5G 170 degree waterThe more you sparge the more sugar you will rinse out. If pot
size is ...

This has all been very helpful. Sounds like there are two pretty big changes here - the first
being that I'm probably not running enough water through my grain (gonna need a bigger brew
pot), so I'll ...

Thanks for the feedback. Still a little confused. I ran off just about 5 gallons exactly -

Perhaps the sarcasm that is seeping from your response was unintentional, but it sort of makes
you sound like a jackass. Just an FYI.There are many things I do not know about beer, which is
