General Homebrew Discussion / My Mash Tun problem
« on: March 14, 2010, 08:25:36 PM »
I have been brewing for over a year now and have decided to upgrade my all grain system. I went from having a 5 gallon cooler mash tun to now a 48qt 12 gal mash tun. I have made two batches on this mash tun and keep running into the same problem. When doing a 5gal batch in this 12 gal tun I leave 1-2 gal of wort in the tun. Is this tun too big for a 5 gal batch? Also I did not make a new manifold for this one yet. I just used the octagon manifold from my old round 5gal tun which only occupies half of the bottom of the tun. Would making a square manifold the occupies the entire bottom solve this?

Thanks
