Cleaning

Using TriClover fittings, disassembly of the system for emptying spent grains and cleaning on a brew day is easy.

The mashtun will be about 80-90 pounds (15 gallon batch @ 35lbs of starting grain) when you have to take it off the stand to empty it.  One person can manhandle it, two is a lot easier.

You will also want to take the boil kettle off to clean it as will have hop residue on the insides. It’s too tall on the stand to effectively clean and rinse it.  Sometimes you have to take the grant out to clean, though not as frequent.  I usually do this if I have a boilover from the top.
