Sparge Return for Insulated Mash Tun

I’ve used my insulated mash tun multiple times now, and it works very well.

The only thing I haven’t been happy with was the return. I finally settled on a stainless steel colander to help distribute the water evenly over the grain bed.

I had a keg lid left over from my last keggle build, so I trimmed it down to fit the Mash Tun, and secured it to the lid using two 6-32 stainless steel screws and nuts:

And then added the appropriate hardware to connect to the lid of the sparge return:

The Tee Connector will allow me to add a thermowell or sampling faucet.

We’ll see how it works next time I brew.
