Simply set the AutoSparge™ float in the lowest position and allow the hot liquor to rise above the grain until the flow is balanced. It is not a problem to run a large amount of foundation water above your grain. Alternatively, we do offer 9” and 12” float arms that will extend the reach of the float. Please ensure your kettle has adequate room for the longer float arm before ordering.
You can work with our local Blichmann retailer to order the longer float arms.
You can also purchase one on the Blichmann Engineering Replacement Parts site at the link below.
