I have used 15 and 26 gallon mega pots as mash tuns. What seems to be the problem?

Dead space is 1.5 gallons. Are you tilting yours when the run off slow down?

I use a stainless half inch street elbow. I can just squeeze a finger in the space between the bottom of the elbow and the bottom of the pot.
