Hi Peoples,


Just wondering if anybody has one of those hop screen cylinders that you can buy off the beer belly website??

If so are they any good? Looking to upgrade my rig ie. Plate Chiller, couple extra fittings for whirlpool so on and so forth, any thoughts on kettle design would be much appreciated :)

Very nice idea BF.

Similar to the old SS scrubbie method, which I'll probably be using once the old pickup tube arrives (mainly for using flowers though, and if the location of the pickup tube is correct, may not even be needed)

Same here and that's in a 70L pot with flat base. It works very well and can pull it out for cleaning.
I whirlpool for all of 30 seconds ten drain to cube.
It's the same as having a False Bottom in there, only better positioned. It's worth the cost but as per above, cheaper solutions can work just fine.
