Where you from Francis? Google "batch sparging" I think it's the easiest technique for your first go at it. GL.

To start there are two types of sparging, batch and fly.Which one were you thinking of doing?

Batch sparging and using a cooler tun with SS braid is about the easiest way to go.

I personally use a copper manifold in a 10 gallon rectangular cooler and batch sparge. There are two basic types of sparging and many variations in equipment and process of them, especially for batch sparging.

My process is to place water and grain in the mash tun, mix it up and let it rest. When it's rest is done I vorlauf and drain the cooler and add some water to "rinse" the sugars from the grain some more. I let it sit a minute or two to let the big chunks of grain hit the bottom and then vorlauf again and drain the cooler again. I might repeat the rinse another time depending on how efficient I want to be compared to how lazy I am.

That's pretty much it.
