    I did some stirring, but not constantly. Do I need to recirculate if I'm going to heat the mash
    in the MLT or will constant stirring do the trick?

    Last session I tried a step mash with my direct fire MLT for the first time. My "false" bottom
    is a frying pan splatter screen with some copper fittings drilled into the center and connected
    to the ou...

    So assuming a sight glass is out, I'm on the right track. I just need to find a more suitable
    vessel to transfer the hot H2O from the HLT to the MLT. Graduations on my spoon/paddle is a
    great idea als...

    So I finally took the plunge this weekend and did my first AG batch. It mostly went well, I
    made all of the gravities I expected to, was a few degrees low on my mash temp by the end of
    the rest, but o...

    I have been having the exact same problem. I steep my specialty grains in about 3 gal of water
    for 45 min at 150 deg. then add DME for boil. Once chilled I top off with preboiled water.My
    thought are:...

    Thanks for the input. I would be using it for my 10 gal round cooler MLT. So it would probably
    need to be a little more sturdy than if it was in my boil kettle. I'm trying to figure out if
    others use ...

    Does anyone have any experience using the NB mash/boil screen instead of the SS braid setup?

    Great thread, thanks for all the info. I washed the yeast from a pale ale last week end,
    followed the steps and what do you know...it turned out just as described. Now I have four
    batches of yeast beg...
