i use a marked 1gal pitcher.There is one thing I am curious about. How are people measuring their water volumes throughout the whole process? Obviously in the beginning its easy if you are using store bought water in in gallon or 2.5 gallon jugs - but how are you measuring throughout the whole process?
I do the exact same thing. Works really well.i use a marked 1gal pitcher.
the initial strike volume is heated by itself, and while my mash is in the 45-60minute conversion, I'm heating up the sparge water so its ready at the appointed time.
I do batch sparges, usually a double sparge.
