What sort of false bottom is installed ?
I use a homemade "Läuterhexe" (hose braid) and have yet to have had a stuck mash. With that grain bill, the only way to get a stuck mash is too fine of a crush.
Lauter witch? Gotta love that one.
Yeah, is an interesting name. Don't ask me why a length of filter hose is called a "Hexe"...
I looked it up , seems like a great idea and I'm surprised it could ever stick .
Crush is definitely my number 1 suspect
I got the standard 30L bucket. Inside there is a läuterhexe
The whole bucket is insulated with blankets wrapped around it. It holds the temperature quite well.
Thats the setup.
Im trying it again atm and will keep you updated. I hope it was just the crush.
Everything went fine, lautering was going well and I hit 75% efficiency. I guess it was just the crush.
It's a neat idea - all the braided screens I've seen have only one end. This uses a spring-style hose, I've seen them mostly made out of stainless steel braid. Replace that female T with a male T and you could wrap a braid all the way around or even coil it in the bottom of a lauter tun, increasing the surface area for faster lautering and decreasing the gunk.... This could be a wonderful invention!
What will those Germans come up with next ..... Great idea !
