I have bought a BeerMaker 30 and now I wonder how to do the sparging so that I get the clearest wort possible.
The issue for me is, that I have a steel cylinder that goes into my electric mash/brew kettle. The bottom of the cylinder i a metal plate with holes in it. I suspect that while I do the mashing, some particles will get through there and end up in the brew kettle.
When I am done with mashing, and start sparging I will have a hard time getting all the particles out, since a Vorlauf would be the whole liquid volume.
I am thinking about getting a mash-bag that I could put on the inside of the steel cylinder (or even on the outside).
Am I thinking too complicated? Is this effort really necessary? How would you use this?
I have not yet used this, but I hope to avoid errors that are unnecessary.
