Hey guys,

Has anyone modified their rig to sparge/recirculate using this from MoreBeer.com?

I saw this picture of Allagash's pilot system on Facebook today and it got me wondering if it can be done relatively easy.

Any thoughts, ideas or comments?

Cheers,
Hooch

I just cannot see that I would get much more out of this modification.

I like the new blichmann auto-sparge... Haven't seen it in person, but now entirely stainless!

Reasonable price, and reviews seem favorable - I will be buying one.

Please send us a picture or two when you install it. The Blichmann Auto-Sparge seems to require drilling a hole into the mash tun and its at a set height. The MoreBeer Ultimate Sparge Arm clamps on and has adjustable height for the difference in grist and batch sizes.

On a separate note, while touring Allagash a few months back it looks like they converted their BM to electric. I wonder if Sabco has plan to release an electric model. ???

I think the new one has a 1/2" NPT male end which will attach to the mash tun inlet with a simple compression fitting. The arm has adjustability too... Not sure how much, but I think it is ample if brewing as little as 5 gallons.
