It just fits very tight through the bung. If you have to you can use silicon to seal stuff.

Lufah,

Can you make a comparison between a slotted copper manifold and your stainles flexible?

No I can't. This is all I've ever used. I don't think it would make much of a difference for batch sparging. I really wouldn't recommend it for fly sparging. I think you would get to much channeling. The copper manifold would be a lot better for fly sparging IMHO.

Why didn't some one tell me I'm not supposed to use the braid for fly sparging? Ah well. I'm still making beer.

It works OK :!: :?: I had always read that you would get to much channeling that way. Goes to show what reading to much will do :oops:

I started using a long stainless braid that loops around in the bottom of my Gott drinking cooler. I've only done fly sparging since I started AG, and everything seems fine to me. I've read all over that fly sparging is better, but I didn't take that into consideration when using the braid.

I like the manifold idea. Having a slotting manifold reminds me of a lateral assembly in a sand filter. That assembly is made for an evenly dispersed flow thru the filter media. Wouldn't that hold true for a grain bed as well?

Nice set up travis. I hope I can put together something just like it before too long. You do 10 gallon all-grain batches, right? What size is your cooler again? I think I'm going to do 5 gallon batches. Wondering what size cooler I should get. Any ideas?
