I used my 15.5 g keggle for the first time yesterday, after several searches on making a dip tube I settled on a 1/2 copper bent 90 degrees in center of keg and added a SS mesh scrubbie at the bottom. Needless to say it did not work, it immediately clogged with sediment and no liquid exited the ball valve. (had hose going from ball valve to bottom of carboy to insure a syphon) I use pellet hops and saw a post during another search this morning that the mesh scrubbies do not work at all for pellets. Also, my chiller did not sit on the bottom of the keggle because of the copper tube and I feel impeded the cooling of the wort. Has anyone developed something that really works for them? am thinking of going down the side of the keggle instead of the center to allow the chiller to sit, but still not sure what is best method to screen out the sediment? I do like using hop pellets vs whole leaf, will a hop bag work with those? Thanks T.
