Everything that I have read says that I should maintain about an inch of water above the grain bed when I fly sparge. During the last two sparges (which were also my first two), even if I stop the run off I can't get the sparge water to build up over the grain bed. The grains just seems to float at the top of the water line. Did I misunderstand the directions, am I doing something wrong with my mash or the sparge itself? I am using 5-gallon Gott coolers as my MLT and HLT with a stainless braid as my filter. Any advice?
