I have been in communication with Grainfather support about the issue as well and an
interesting question was raised about the draining of wort into the overflow pipe. I was asked

Wait, you're saying that you are supposed to let the entire grain bed drain, then add sparge
water? I can swear they specifically said not to do that in their video? They show the guy
adding water con...
