Sparge arm works great and allows me to not create any channels in the grain bed. The brewery controller I purchased to replace my old one worked for about 4 hours and the GCFI plug quit working and could not be reset. I sent a couple emails to get assistance from brau supply and heard nothing back. I had to purchase a. We GCFI plug on Amazon for an item that is supposed to have a 1 year warranty; not too happy about that . Customer service?
I used this the first time yesterday. My setup is I have a sparge heater, a gravity pump, a butterfly valve and this item. This works very well because I am a sparge kind of guy...This allowed me to get 88% efficiency.
Holes need to be slightly larger to avoid clogging, otherwise a perfect add on.
So far I have only used it once, for a NEIPA with the Unibrau Pro all-in-one system, so I do not want to say this always happens. When I was recirculating, grains would get stuck and clog the holes and I had to stop using it for the sparge. When I used it for cleaning and to test it with just water, it worked great. Hoping this was just a one-off issue.
