Reader Tip: Clean in Place (CIP) + Shop Vac Deal

A process tip from HBF Reader Aaron:
Here’s a tip that changed the way I brew. Or, at least the way I clean up.  I was able to turn my 3 keggle system into a clean-in-place operation by buying a wet-dry vacuum. Now, after I mash, I suck up the spent grains with the vacuum and just roll it out to my compost pile. Then I use my chilling waste water to rinse the mash tun, refilling it with clean water when I am done. After I drain the wort from the boil kettle, I use the refilled mash tun to clean the boil kettle and pump. Finally I use the wet-dry vac to get all the moisture out of the kettles, and to get all the sticky off the vacuum.
