Either one of those Sparging (5030/5032) should do the trick. As I
may have mentioned, I got mine from Home Depot and I checked the
local Ace Hardware today on the way home and they carried them also.
On my first flaked grain mash I strained the mash through a NEW pair
of my wifes Panty hose. Caught hell for it but they worked. You just
have to be a little more careful than with the paint bags. Get too
rough and they tear.
As for the experiment. Well it never got off the ground. I decided
to go all grain Malt instead with some added peat malt. So far so
good with that. Just building up a sufficient amount of low wines for
now. Sorry I cant be of more help on that one. I think the Pilsen
would be a good choice though.
