    I got sick of grain going past the bottom screen so I made my own filter. It works to stop grain getting in the pump but now I've screwed the top screen onto the bottom screen with a split silicon hose around the edge.No grain getting past now only the finer stuff.

    Spunding Valve

    I wonder if you could add a T-piece between the disconnect and the adjuster with a collection bottle attached,you could slowly unscrew it to release the pressure and catch the krausen.Or a hose from the T-piece to a carb cap then a bottle.
