304 stainless steel mash cap connects to tubing (not included) and sits on top of grain bed, under the liquid level.
Use the pull-down menu to swap out connection type from barbed to MNPT Short, FNPT, or Cam Lock Male.
12-¾” diameter is the standard diameter size - works for most vessels. If that is too wide for your application then use the drop-down menu and specify a smaller diameter (additional charge applies).
Sits comfortably on top of grain mash, and solves several concerns of dedicated all grain brewers:
* Helps eliminate O2 exposure during recirculation
* Helps prevent channeling of the mash and shifting of the grain bed during sparging.
* Increases efficiency of sugar extraction from the mash.
Design credit goes to Bracconeire - a well known and active supporter of www.homebrewtalk.com; together we developed this product for his mash tun. The inspiration came from Bilsch - another well known member of HBT.
This item is customizable. If you need a LARGER diameter perforated disc - feel free to Contact Jaybird and he will happily quote it for you.
