I was planning on brewing an all grain batch of NB Brickwarmer the first week of January, however, couldn't get to it.  It was pre crushed a few days before Christmas.  Would you still use the grains or  are they going to be too stale. I won't be able to brew until this weekend.  Thanks guys

Very nice.  If you need someone to hang out/move in there, let me know.  I live in San Tan Valley!!

No, I did a batch sparge.  Things went well.  Had 12.75lbs of grain with room to spare, but if in the future I want a big batch, I'd like to use some of that room.  It wont collapse cause it's stainless steel, the copper idea is great though.  Knew someone here had good idea of what to do.  Thanks

I have a ten gallon mash tun with feet under my manifold to keep it elevated off the bottom.  I put two gallons of water and added four more (To get my water to grist ratio of 1.25).  Thanks again guys.

Did my first all grain today in a new mash tun.  What suprised me was that I had 2 gallons of dead space.  I thought this was a bit excessive.  Does anyone else have this issue, or should I chop down the feet a bit?  Thanks in advance for any advice/tips.  John

Just remember that it's a fun hobby.  I think my all-grain come out better, however, my issue is finding the time due to having children.  If you've won a few medals already, you won't have any issues going all-grain.

That looks nice.  Beats having to walk back and forth to the garage and backyard to set things up.
