Doing big brews or using big equipment with the Blichmann Autosparge? You might consider going with a longer float rod! A full six inches longer than the 6" float rod that comes standard on the Blichmann Autosparge, this longer rod can give you a wider range of motion for bigger brew kettles and mash tuns. This gives your more control and flexibility with your sparging capabilities. A minimum pot or mash tun diameter of 18" is required for use of the 12" float rod. Get the most out of your Autosparge!
