I searched but found nothing, so my apologies if this has come up before, I'm sure it has.
I am getting a Chugger pump soon (maybe a Great Brew Eh pump though) and I am wondering it it will be compatible with my mash tun which has a SS braid? It's a 10 gallon Rubbermaid/Home Depot cooler with a 1/2" braid set up in a loop/circle.
I've heard that pumps can exert enough pressure/suction to cause channeling with a SS braid.
Is this something I should be concerned about? If so I'll just use the pump to transfer the water from the HLT to the MT and use gravity for the MT to the BK, and then the pump for the BK to my carboys, but I was just wondering if I could use the pump with my current MT configuration?
