Product Details

Finally a sparging system that's a "set-it-and-forget-it" design! This elegantly simple sparge mechanism automatically sets the hot liquor flow rate and liquid level in your mash / lauter tun. As you change the sparge rate into your boil kettle, the AutoSparge™ automatically responds by increasing or decreasing your hot liquor flow to compensate and keeps a constant level in your tun. Awesome for RIMS systems!

Works great with gravity systems OR with pumps! Wort gently rotates on top of grain bed to reduce channeling, oxygen pick-up, and to increase extraction efficiency. WIth a constant hot liquor level over your grain bed, complicated rotating sparge arms are unnecessary complications!

Valve body and float ball with rod are 100% stainless steel. Includes 18" silicone hose and stainless hose float. Requires a 13/16 mounting hole. Threads accept a 1/2" female NPT fitting.

Fits any pot larger than 12" in diameter including converted kegs. Adaptable to coolers.

How well do these work / fit in a 10 gallon cooler with regards to the length of the rod that the float ball is attached to? How adjustable is the actual distance that the float ball protrudes and can it be adjusted? I typically use large grain bills so I'm concerned with the ball / float arm being out almost horizontally and touching the opposite side of the cooler.

Best Answer: It works great in 10 gallon coolers with proper installation, the 9" float arm can be fully raised in the cooler.
