This information isn't entirely correct. Slot direction does not matter according to John Palmer.


"The slots can face up, down or to the side; hydraulically, it makes no difference." Palmer even has a picture of a tun with slots facing upward.

Maybe if your system relies on siphoning it would matter, but it really doesn't matter. Why else would a SS braid manifold work? It's essentially slotted all the way around.

just surround it with a fine muslin bag and you will be amazed at how fast you can run off the wort.
