I've seen some folks use a tupperware lid to float on top of the mash and pour onto that to avoid channeling. Personally, I collect small amounts, a quart or two at a time, and pour back gently, but I'm using a cube and the grain bed is pretty deep.
This is the ORIGINAL Pabst Blue Ribbon Beer. Nature's choicest products provide its prized flavor. Only the finest of hops and grains are used. Selected as America's Best in 1893.
