Blowoff Hose Chaos

I brewed a Imperial Russian Stout yesterday and obviously collected more wort than I should have. My 6.5 carboy was really full and then I added my 3L yeast starter.

Igloo Cooler Mash Tun Cleaning

As a new user of cooler mash tuns, I have a potentially silly question: how do I get any stuck grain out from under the edge of the false bottom? I have a few pieces stuck. Thanks for humoring me.

Cooler mash tuns

Silly question but I'm new to my igloo cooler mash tun. How do I get grains out that are caught between the bottom and false bottom? I assume the false bottom can be removed? Thank you.
