Well I am a machine, so I guess even though both pies were homemade you can still call them that ha ha. I'm calling on my old skills from summers past working at the pizzeria

Now that is a peach!thanks! guild makes beautiful guitars. I really want one of their 12 strings.
One of the advantages of the Coleman Extreme (70 qt., anyway) is that it has a trough/groove slightly lower than the bottom level that allows maximum drainage. The 70 qt. is also large enough to do reasonably big 10 gallon batches.+1 to the 70qt coleman! gotta love the channel for the drain. Plus it can do 10 gallon batches. When I went all grain, I bought a small cooler (5 gallon I think?) did 3 or 4 batches then bought the 70 qt so I could do 10 gallons. Should have done it in the first place....
yeah I'm batch sparging. I believe I saw a post somewhere by Denny saying that'd he experimented with longer braids and didn't notice a difference.Palmer talks about manifold configurations in his book as it relates to the flow through the grain bed.
The manifold configuration is only really important for fly sparging. Assuming the OP is following Denny's Cheap'n'easy methods, he would be batch sparging and 6 to 8 inches of braid is perfectly fine.
