Very nice set-up!

I, too, like the sparge arm very much. I might have to steal that idea when I upgrade... if that ever happens.


Be sure to do a photo series or video of that thing in action!

First batch done yesterday: Dry Stout

the new system works well, just a couple of things I have to improuve.

First time I've tried continuous sparging, my efficency was too high! 80% so I've done a check of the gravity of the final running and it was 1.008
