    SS Brewtech Infusion Mash Tun - Recirculation Bulkhead Fittings?

    Just received the Infusion Mash Tun for Christmas and, as has been my experience with all of my SS Brewtech equipment... the instructions are far from sufficient.

    Mash Recirc and grain bed compression

    Hi, I've got a 15G SS Brewtech kettle with false bottom on an induction heater. I've got a 12V pump recircing the mash but it seems to be murdering my conversion effeciency. So i gave the grain bed a poke and it is very, very compact. Not at all compact enough to stop flow mind you, I'm just...
