Sorry for the cross post but I should have posted here first I guess since I didn't get any responces in Gen Tec thread.
I was reading the article on a build your own hopback in the Brew Your Own magazine, vol. 13 no. 7, when the idea came to me of using my Rubbermaid MLT as a hopback. It seems like I could just clean it out while the wort is boiling and conect a high tempurature tube from the kettle's ball valve to the barb on my false bottom with the fresh hops underneath it. I figure I might need to switch the 90 degree barg on the false bottom to a 1/2 NPT threaded hose barb, but other than that I don't see why it wouldn't work.
