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 AutoSpargeā„¢ 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.

Once past the learning curve this is well worth the money. Review by Edwin

You have to have at least 2+ inches of sparge water above the mash in order to ensure you dont disturb the grain bed. I use a March pump to transfer my sparge water so you will also have to restrict the pump output in order to ensure the pressure dosent force the auto sparge valve open. Other than that just make sure that you set the arm level before sparging! Otherwise you will burn yourself trying to fix it! (Posted on 3/13/10)
