i'm doing an all grain batch in a square coleman cooler with a loose-fitted manifold. i'm halfway through the mash, went to stir, and i dislodged the manifold from the bulkhead that passes through the cooler wall. The water is 156f, it's too hot to reach down there and reattach it. WHAT DO I DO?

Run it through a paint strainer bag if you have one

Or a flour strainer/sifter if one is available. That does a really good job getting out small and large particles alike.

Be a man a shove your arm in there!

Or you could just dump it all in a pot and fix the manifold like martinworswick said. SISSY!

How hard is it to re-attach it? Could it be done with a pair of long BBQ tongs?

Don't stick your hand it. I did that once. I had a lobster had for a week.

I was only kidding Revvy.

A warning to all people who read my post. I was only joking around. I would not recommend you shove your arm in 160F anything (not that I haven't done it and I never got lobster hand).

I wasn't kidding I did it on the GAP thread brew. Hurt like hell for a few days.

I almost tried it again with my long silicone gloves on my last brew. I thought the braid came off. I did reach in as far as I could, but even though the gloves go to my elbow I realized my cooler is longer and stuff was going to flow inside.

I was able to realize in the hot second that the braid WAS attatched though, and ended up blowing through the hose on the valve to free whatever was blocking the flow instead.

I would assume it would depend on how long your arm would be exposed to the temp. You would have to be quick.

Seriously though, everyone listen to Revvy, don't shove your arm in your mash tun. I was just joking around.
