Mash Sparging Sprinkler

Edit: I’ve decided that this is a bad idea. There is a TON of heat loss through this. Don’t do it unless you have a way to maintain temperature in the mash tun.

I have a brew in the fermenters, and my first all-grain batch is going to be … interesting.

My first mash

One of the reasons why it will be interesting is because of the lack of a good way to evenly sprinkle water into the mash.  So I fixed that problem.

In place and ready

Ready for me to add the hose barb connector.

There’s a ton of holes off the bottom of the holes (I say off the bottom because I drilled at about a 30-45 degree angle from the bottom, this would hopefully equalize pressure.  I won’t be pushing a lot of water through this, as it will be coming from the hot liquor tun through 5/16″ hose with only gravity as pressure.

Next brew day is coming up.  I can’t wait.
