Wort grant, many brewers learned about it at the brewery. ACE beer equipment has upgraded it from a stainless steel vessel to a glass vessel. As you know, glass makes it easy to check. A wort grant is a small vessel for collecting wort, open to the air, placed between the lautering vessel and the wort kettle. It may be small, but it plays a big role in the brewhouse system!
Why do we need a wort grant?
When using a pump to move wort from the lauter tun to the kettle, it is easy to extract wort faster than the grain bed wants it to flow. This can compact the grain bed and cause a stuck runoff. Apart from being a significant inconvenience, a stuck runoff can also damage the wort pump because magnetically coupled pumps can be damaged if they run dry.
It has three functions:
To avoid potential vacuum in the lauter or mash/lauter tun during wort pumping for recirculation or filling the kettle;
To allow the brewer to assess wort clarity and wort flow;
In larger systems with multiple lauter tun outlets, to determine whether all parts of the grain bed are flowing sufficiently well or require raking or other measures to improve flow-through.
The grant thus serves as a flow buffer.
