Help Support Homebrew Talk:

Lautering is the act of separating the now sweet wort from the spent grains. In homebrewing the act of lautering is usually performed in the same vessel that was used for mashing by use of a manifold or false bottom.

There are normally 3 steps in the lautering process.

  1. Mash-out
  2. Recirculation (also known as vorlauf)
  3. Sparging
