Whether myth or fact, the thought of scorched wort while electric brewing gives me a bit of a shiver. So what’s one to do? Stir! 30 minutes of it while waiting for the boil sounds dull. Let’s put that pump to work.
Started with a piece of 0.5″ 304SS pipe. Bent the exterior bend, the outlet bend and welded on two 1.5″ TC caps. I designed the top to sit above the kettle to avoid adding another ball valve.
And on it went. The sparge arm swings over and attaches to the whirlpool inlet. This allows sparging to begin while I heat to boil with the stirring of the wort. All-in-all it takes about 24 minutes to end mash, sparge and reach boil.
