Description

Have you longed for a sparging system with a "set-it-and-forget-it" design? The elegantly simple construction of Blichmann Engineering's AutoSparge™ automatically sets the hot liquor flow rate and liquid level in your mash tun. As you change the sparge rate into your boil kettle, the AutoSparge™ automatically responds by increasing or decreasing hot liquor flow to compensate and keeps a constant level in your mash tun.
 
Newly redesigned - 100% stainless steel, improved o-ring mounting and 1/2" NPT thread.
 
The AutoSparge™ level and flow control system is an awesome accessory for RIMS systems, and it also works great with gravity systems or with pumps! Wort gently rotates on top of the grain bed to reduce channeling and oxygen pick-up, and to increase extraction efficiency. With a constant hot liquor level over your grain bed, complicated rotating sparge arms are unnecessary!
 
·         Stainless steel float ball, float arm, and valve body!
 
·         Includes 18" silicone hose and stainless steel hose float ball.
 
·         Fits any kettle larger than 12" in diameter, including converted kegs.
 
·         Comes equipped with 6" float arm.  9" and 12" float arms available separately for increasing range              of motion. Min pot diameter for longer float arms is 15" and 18" respectively.

Is it possible to have the Vorlauf Arm MTS Assembly and the Blichmann Sparge are added to the Mash Tun prior to shipping?

Anybody use this with a Brewer's Edge Mash & Boil?

I dig it!
Good quality. Easy to install and operate. Just be careful. First time I used it I was too busy playing around with it and not paying attention and ended up spargiing way too fast. lol...

Incomplete Package
I wouldn't bother unless you're going to shell out for the extra rod lengths also. These should really be included. I bought it not knowing if the rod it comes with would be long enough. Guess what - it wasn't. I still don't know which one I need, so I'll end up buying both of the extensions.
It's also not great that the valve can't handle a bit more pressure than it does without leaking.
But it seems like when I have enough parts and get things adjusted it will do a fine job.

Good product. A couple of areas of concern.
The auto- sparge works as described. I wish you could order it with the specific length sparge arm that you needed. Better yet, have adjustment for the length (ie clap on extendable float arm). The arm it came with was too long for my FF 5 gal batch mash tun cooler. Secondly, it would be nice to have something to support the auto sparge in the wall of the cooler. There is a fair amount of movement at the point of attachment. The FF cooler has a thin inner wall. This may lead to failure of the wall of the mash tun with time.

Blichmann Sparge Arm
Great product, but should have come with an one additional longer sparge arm, an additional float for the tubing, and approximately 24 inches of additional tubing. I had to order all of the above in order to get it to work properly on my 14 gallon mash tun.

somewhat works
It works but it leaks around the plunger so it doesn't shut off the flow and causes my sparge to go quicker than I'd like.

Don't Love The Autosparge
I bought one of these and found myself going back to my homemade sparge manifold. The design and idea of the unit is great as is everything with Blichmann, but I think you can save yourself some money and go buy some cpvc pipe drill some holes in it and use a valve on your HLT to control the flow.
