    Has anyone adapted a lauter helix to a grainfather (current model connect) and if so can you give me details on what fittings were used and any pics would be great.
    Cheers.

    There are a couple of folk with the Grainfather who have bought the Lauter helix, they live around FTG
    I will check up and see if I can track them down.
    Pretty sure there is a guy on one of the UK forums who has got one on his Grainfather.

    Thanks wide eyed, have been googling but not come up with much.
    Do you have the specs on the ones you had made ?

    Yes mate, 1,000mm long 2mm wire thickness and 22mm dia. I remember looking at the internals of the Grainfather and I know the helix can be utilised using hose.

    This might have been asked before but are these any good for a grainfather?

    He's a first poster. It seems that since the troubles of the rebellion new members have to post a certain amount before they can PM or (it seems) be PM'd. Tis' ridiculous, but it is what it is.

    Markp, looks good. Can you tell me exactly how you attached the elbow to the pump inlet? Does it just push on tight enough?
