    Not sure what you mean by "topped up", but that beer will be fine for a while (months). If it
    is sitting on yeast I'd rack to secondary. I'd use an airlock, just 'cause. Just remember to
    keep it fille...

    Do you mind posting a pick of this set-up?BoI have a low speed angle drill. Its RPM is around
    350 and works great. The handle was easy to thread a bolt and mount it to the plywood base.
    Looked at buyi...

    He's since changed his usual MLT to a more efficiency and effective design that doesn't present
    this problem.What did he change from/to?

    But with batch sparging, there is no reason at all to slow down the draining. A quick runoff of
    both the mash and sparge runnings will not reduce efficiency at all.That was my understanding,
    so I just...

    Stir? I've stirred hard and long. Once even with a 5g paint stirrer attached to a drill, to the
    point that I was worried I beating up the grain. No noticeable improvement.I normally use a big
    SS spoon...

    I mashed at 1.3qt/lb and got first runnings of 1.084. Per Kaiser's table, this is pretty close
    what I should expect, right? So I really don't think it is a crush/mash problem. Something is
    off with my...

    48 qt Coleman cooler for an MLT. Not sure how much water was above grain bed after it settled--
    maybe 3-4 inches? Mash started at 153 and finished at 151.

    Yes, I sparge to my boil volume-- 6.25g for a 5g batch (I shoot for 5.25 into fermenter). My
    buddy does 10g batches, but boils off at roughly the same rate. He tells me his second runnings
    are around ...

    Will do on the crush pic, but it looks a lot like what I see here as a decent crush. I stir
    well and have tried the double batch sparge several times. It never resulted in any meaningful
    increase.I bo...

    Thanks. I put 5g of 1.071 wort into the fermenter. Recipe was calculated at 68% and to put
    5.25g into the fermenter (to allow for trub), but I boiled off a little extra (and undershot my
