Jaybird Grain Sparge Mash Cap for incredible improvements in sparging process.
SKU 3834
Item Options:
If reducing diameter from 12.75", specify in inches:

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.

The material is 304 stainless steel, 16 gauge thickness with 3/32 holes on 5/32 centers - the same material of our world-renowned Jaybird False Bottoms.

(Second picture shows examples of connection types - not included).

Great idea, great execution 09/09/2022

I typically mash using Jaybird's Thirfty RIMS on an SS Brewtech mash tun. This replaced the SS recirc manifold on my last brew, and I saw several immediate benefits. Since this isn't going to get clogged, there was no need to do an initial recirc to clear grain particles before attaching the manifold (which meant no opening the lid to switch attachments, no singed fingers, and no loss of temp). SS's manifold would sink into the grainbed, making it harder to check flowrate and/or monitor levels during sparge. The screen stays nicely above the bed and visible. (And I didn't have any issue with compressing the grainbed.) Lastly, super easy to clean up, no worries about getting stubborn grains unstuck from tiny holes in long, twisty tubes.
