Right now my Mash Tun has this inlet (https://store.brewpi.com/mashing/kettle-inlets-outlets/weldless-kettle-inlet-kit-barbed-bsp-241) with a silicon hose. The problem I having is that during mash re-circulation (I have a HERMS) the grain bed doesn’t get uniform due to wort coming in pushing a side the grains away from the hose. Any ideias to improve this method?
I’ve got one of the SS Brewtech recirc manifolds. They’re brilliant though can clog if any big bits of grain get through your false bottom. I tend to use a hose and stir every so often for the bulk of the mash, then switch the the manifold for the last 10mins & sparging.
