Lauter Tun

Proper filtration is key to achieving the brew you desire. When the mash is pumped into the lauter tun, the sweet wort is then separated from the grain husks. The lauter tun consists of a large vessel to hold the mash, a false bottom, and a manifold to allow the wort to recirculate and clarify. The wort can then be transferred to the kettle while sparging removes any residual sugars to be collected. An adjustable height raking machine keeps the bed from collapsing allowing for a quick vorlauf and collection while maintaining your desired clarity.
