Pushing Keggle Mash Tun to the limits?
Have any of you ever put your mash tun to the limits, where your mash tun is a keggle?
I have a keggle with one of Jay Birds false bottoms, so i lose a gallon to dead space.
I am planning on brewing a weeheavy and for an 11 gallon batch, i'm looking at 36 pounds of grain. I'lll probably do a 1 qt/pound grist ratio.
Rackers calculator shows i would need 11.88 + 1 gallon deadspace FB, 12.88 gallons of space needed total. I've done some big mashes before, but this may be pushing the limits.
Any thoughts? I think i'll be fine, but always appreciate the input on HBT.
40 Gallons brewed in 2013....and counting
33 Gallons brewed in 2012
159 Gallons brewed in 2011
