  1. Hi Larry,

    Really enjoy your channel. Your videos are straight forward and easy to follow.

    I’m new to all grain and had some issues with what seemingly should be easy— Vorlaufing. I filled a 3 quart pitcher twice and recirculated, but I kept getting grain chunks in the runnings.

    My mash tun is a ten gallon Igloo cooler with a false bottom. I have a Barley Crusher grain mill with the factory settings. In my recollection, I didn’t drain my tun very quickly.

    Few questions:

    1. After recirculating, should I wait 5 minutes or so for the grain bed to settle?

    2. how long should vorlauf process generally take?

    3. Do you wait a full 60 minute mash time, or can you being vorlauf long with 20 minutes or so left?

    4. Any other general thoughts or tips for a successful vorlauf? Would love to see a video in this topic.

    Unrelated, but a video on measuring and adjusting PH would be great as well. Don’t see a lot of videos dedicated to this.

    Thanks so much for taking the time to read! Keep up the great work, your all grain for beginners is still reference I use!
