Notes:

Pouring the mash into a filter lying in the cane pan before straining it.  The pan is about twelve feet long and forms the top of a fireplace built under it.  Maintaining the fire at just the right temperature is critical to the process.  When the fire burns down wood is added and when it gets too hot it is cooled off by spraying water on it.  The next image in the series shows the next step -- straining the mash through the filter.
