I realize all systems are different but on my HERMS it has been tough with a 1qt/lb ratio. Because of a couple stuck mashes, I now brew more in the range of 1.3/lb. Having said that, I have had...

In my application the wort will be traveling through the HERMS after the grant so it can help keep temps in check. I love the dual-function idea of using it both as a vorlauf grant and a hopback!
