I think you've got to use hi-temp tubing for that connection...at 150F regular vinyl tubing is about as stiff as cooked pasta. My setup is exactly like yours, but I used hi-temp vinyl and didn't have any problems.

Your freakin mash stuck because of 5lb's of wheat............Try a pale ale next time......It's one of the easiest brews to make and it requires NO wheat.....

So even though it was not flaked wheat it could have still been the culprit of stuck mash?

Flaked or kernal, it's still wheat. And you used 5 pounds for a 3 gallon brew? You would probably need a lot of rice hulls to sparge that much, IMO.

If you use a lot of adjuncts (unmalted grains) you will have to run a more elaborate mash schedule than a single infusion. These are the rests that I recommend:

Beta Glucanase - breaks down the wheat gums. This is what caused your stuck sparge
Protein rest - breaks down some of the long and medium chained proteins so the yeast has amino acids to feed on.
Saccrification - convert the starches

And if you are using cracked wheat kernels (not flaked wheat) I even recomend doing all this as a decoction mash or boil the wheat before you add it to the mash.

You should definately try an all barley malt beer next time. You'll see, its a breeze

I never thought of it like that Kaiser, but you are right. It starts in the mash. In the mean time that is still a lot of wheat.
