Very nice and shiny! How do you use the sparge arm?

Done one brew with it so far and it worked very well. As it says in the literature it is aimed at brewers who want to upgrade from a cooler mash tun, that is me, I have used up to now a Coleman cooler which also worked well. It held mash temperature as well as my cooler, losing less than 1°C over the hour, although my cooler was also wrapped up in many towels. The main advantage that this one has, other than it being shiny 8-) , is that MM includes the sparge arm which means I won't batch sparge any more. The one disadvantage for me is that to feed the sparge arm I decided I needed to pump it which meant ordering disconnects, pump, etc, although it is another little step towards looking more professional :whistle:
One other comment to make is that the one brew I have done so far produced the clearest wort (post boil) I have ever had in 44 brews, but, I did use a Protofloc tablet instead of Irish Moss for the first time too, may have been that :?: .

On my wanted list for the new year. Have bought the sparge pump already in anticipation.

Lucky Squiffy!

I got one a couple of months ago and haven't looked back.

You're right about the sparge, it can be gravity fed but needs a fair drop. My hlt is at head height - 6 ft ish - and works well with a drop to work top height. But much less than that is a dribble.

I find that the digital thermometer reads about 2 degrees lower than the mash is when taking a reading directly from the mash, that's easily adjusted for.

Oh and the feet fall off too easily...

It holds the heat excellently. Loses perhaps 1/2 to 1 degree over a 60-90 minute sparge. I tend to use the water from my chiller to clean the tun and last time left some luke warm water in overnight it was still warm 24+ hours later.

It's really well made and should provide many years of service - making all that SS worthwhile...
