Its not easy. All I did was take the end and scrunch up the braid little by little and pulled the hose. Keep doing that and you'll get it. Its hard to explain, but really there is only one way to do it.
Yeah... I meant the rubber hose underneath. I think I was trying to make it harder than it was. I had my wife hold one end of the hose with pliers while I tugged on the braid. I was trying to pull a little from one end and then inch that "free space" down the length of the braid until I got to the other end. Turns out, the third pass down the braid I grabbed the very end of the braid and the whole thing just slipped right off.
Its in the mash tun right now, so we'll see how it goes. I keep catching it when Im stirring though....it doesn't really want to stay on the bottom. We'll see.
Thanks for you help.
