Subject: Sparge water level / Grain bed temp
Date: 1992-05-12 17:02:06 GMT

I've read two different ideas on sparge water level in the grain bed.
One says, maintain the water level just below the top of the grain bed.
The other says maintain the water level one inch above the grain bed.
Which is better/correct?

Also, I always stick a metal probe thermometer into my grain bed while
sparging to monitor the temperature. With 190 F water, my grain bed
temperature is 150 F. I use the Listermann sparger setup.
Anyway, just another data point.
