    At my last brew I added a little more liquor to begin with, did a decent whirlpool and stand, no chill. The trub cone stayed intact, and I got bright beerinto the cubes.

    Look at how bright the beer is around the trub come. I was able to draw off 4L for starter wort

    So I made a thing
    This lowers the helix to the bottom of the guten and gives the lowest possible pickup
    I'm yet to give it a whirl and I'm not completely happy with it's position, so if it doesn't really work I'm going to try another design I have in mind

    Looks good spork, let us know it goes. I'm still looking for an answer to get it to work.

    Will this have the pump running through it, or just straight put the tap?
