Actually I'm adding 2 new lazy brewer procedures. The other one is mash recirculation. I used to make an aluminum foil cap with slits in it, and place that on top of my mash. Then recirculation hose flows onto that. I was thinking channeling when I first started doing it, which is not an issue because I'm not fly soaring. But I just kept making them out of habit. Reading Martin's comment on another thread, that just running the hose into the top is fine and will reduce mash O2dation, I've decided to just do it.
Looking forward to not making the foil disk, and not fishing it out after runoff. And looking forward to even more amazing results from this low effort LODO technique.
