I've been using the straight bazooka screens for years, both in the tun and the kettle. They work great. I'd expect the T type to be even better.

Ireally enjoy my bazooka T screen. Works very well, but doesn't like pellet hops. If you end up using pellets use a hop bag.

I guess it works ok with whole hops then?

I've been thinking of adding a SS hose filter to my kettle drain. Anyone got any experience with that?

It works super with whole hops. Not a problem at all!

Sorry I've got no experiences with a braided hose in the kettle. I do however have a braided hose in my Mash Tun. I bought a pre-made kit from Chris1Kenobi in another forum.

He also sells a HLT and Kettle kit too.. or DIY of course.

My only complaint with braided hose in the MT is the fact I've never actually gotten my runoffs completely devoid of husks and grain particulates (always small white floaties in my recirculation fluids). It could be I'm too picky, or not doing something right. I think in my last mash I kept disturbing the grainbed, eventually the wort started channeling to where I had vourlafed backin. When the liquid was drained you could tell where I had re-added my circulated mash back in.

I've already got a DIY ss hose mesh manifold in my MLT. It works great for me. I'm just wondering if the trub would clog up the mesh in a kettle?

mines for the mash/lauter tun, so it should be okay. i used the SS braid in my Rubbermaidd mash/lauter tun, but it wasa home made, and much smaller than the Bazooka. that puppies big!

Talk to Dennis (tnlandsailor) about the Hop Stopper .

This thing has completely changed my brewday. Chilling/siphoning almost made me quit this hobby, and since I've had this thing it takes all my stress away.

I don't know what your boil kettle consists of but I'm sure a weldless convrsion could be made up to accept the hop stopper. As far as for my brewing, best money I've spent.

I've got a converted pony keg for a kettle. I've got a 1/2 male thread inside my kettle. My only concern with the hop stopper is that it blocks me from the bottom of my kettle. I will still be adding extract occasionaly and want to be able to stir the bottom of the pot.
