Add pressed on Locline male socket?:

Blichmann Autosparge. This device is used for two different brewing systems. In 3 vessel fly-sparge systems, this device is installed in the mash tun and regulates the inflow of sparge water. Without the autosparge, you would need to regulate the mash tun's sparge inflow and wort outflow to the same speed and double check the flows occasionally. The autosparge allows you to only worry about the outflow speed and then you can truly walk away for the rest of the sparge time.

The other use is in 2-vessel RIMS systems such as the Blichmann Breweasy. In these systems, the mash is drained from above down into the boil kettle that is equipped with a temperature controlled heat source. The wort is heated and pumped back up to the mash tun. The autosparge is employed in this system to ensure that the boil kettle is never completely pumped dry.

This particular version is equipped with a weldless bulkhead which can be installed into a kettle simply by drilling a 13/16" hole. The 1/2" male NPT threads slips through the hole and the unit is secured with the included locknut. There is a silicone oring nestled into the base of the unit that makes the install liquid tight provided you do not overdrill the hole. If you have a welded coupling installed in the kettle with female threads facing inward, you can thread this autosparge into that but some male threads will remain exposed.

Note: some customers have inquired if our locline based Mash Recirculation Kit may be used with the autosparge and the answer is yes. We've tried to describe how to do this yourself but many people asked us to press fit the locline directly on for them when purchasing so we just added the option to a dropdown menu above. To be clear, this option gets you one locline male socket pressed on to the hose barb that normally feeds the floating thinwall silicone tubing. You'll need to purchase either a dozen or so locline straight pieces, a sparge ring, or a combination of both and those will snap on to the male socket.
