    Your waste will be higher due to foaming issues. You need to have a way to keep your kegs as cold as your brites, or you will have a mess. Generally speaking, it is not advised to fill from kegs.

    I wouldn't recommend a pressure washer, if something got plugged up on the drain you could easily over-pressure and burst the keg. Plus, pressure washers are more about high pressure and not volume,...

    Do you have rakes? Turn them on and take them all the way down to the false bottom. That should help you de-water things. Otherwise, its going to be a mess when you open up the mash tun door.
