After you have properly recirculated (if you choose to do so) you could stop the runoff, and put your drainage hose into a fine mesh hop sack clamped tight with a worm clamp.

That's what I was going to suggest as well.  It works.

Alternatively, you could line the tun with one of these:

I'll check them out, thanks.

Alternatively, I suppose I could just install a standard cooler bulkhead and screw a threaded thermowell into the interior coupling.

Does anyone sell a weldless thermowell that could be installed in a cooler mash tun?

All the ones I am finding are designed for kettles.

Who's planning to make it out this year? 

I'm hoping to be there.

If you are planning to ferment cold (like 48-50), I would pitch 4.

I guess the thing that is perplexing me the most isn't so much the lagers, as I expected 2124 to take a long time to clear up, but rather is the english beers.  1968 flocs like out in a big hurry when it is done, so I'm not sure why I'm having such a hard time getting that stuff cleared up.  The bitters, pales, and the scottish were all done with it, and they all have the same particle problem.

Is it possible you're just transferring too much trub when racking from the fermentor to the spunding/serving keg?  Maybe that haze is fine hop particulate, etc. rather than yeast.

If you want good long-haired country music from that era, a far better choice is "The Gilded Palace of Sin" by the Flying Burrito Brothers. Heck, "Workingman's Dead" or "American Beauty" are better country than the Eagles.

Yeah, Gram Parsons was pretty cool, and I love the Dead. 

There's a pretty good live album of the Flying Burrito Brothers at the Avalon Ballroom in 1969 when they opened for the Dead.

Well I ordered the new mash tun.

Let us know how you like it. I'm thinking about buying one of those myself later this month.

Man, I am loving my new Extech 110.  I've only just received it, but so far it is much easier and faster to use than my MW101.

I have a batch fermenting now with 1450, so I should have some idea about that one soon.

1450 with 50 ppm SMB - no sulphur issues
3711/3724 blend (50/50) with 44 ppm SMB - no sulphur issues

Bauhaus is a little north, and is one started by a former member of the forum, he went by Pawtucket Patriot. Might drop by and say hi.

I was actually thinking about doing that as well.

On my iPhone Podcasts app, what's showing up is two copies of Brew Files #3.
