Product Review (submitted on December 15, 2011):
Hello all. John here from Blichmann Engineering. It is normal for some wort to leak out the end of the unit during operation. The clearance is intentional and no rubber seals are used to prevent the piston from sticking from wort and grain particles. This wort just drains onto the top of the mash bed so is not an issue. It will still fully shut off and control flow as needed as the float rises.

If you have an earlier model with seals in them simply remove them and any sticking issues should be resolved.

If you are still experiencing sticking this is not normal. Please contact us at feedback@blichmannengineering.com and we'll work with you to get it resolved.
