Default Stainless Braided hose covers

Wondering if anyone has ever used them to fashion a manifold for a brew kettle?

They don't work very well in the boil pot, they clog too easily. You need a course mesh screen and whirpool.

Hope this helps! It sure works well for me.

I use a false stainless bottom, but in my boil kettle I insert either a copper or stainless metal scubber. I collect a small amount of wort in a pan to make sure it runs clear, then hook up the wort cooler

I'm just curious, Thirstyone. Why bother with teflon tape on the fiitings that are inside the kettle? It doesn't seem like it would matter if it leaked a little bit while submerged in wort.

If you had a dip tube and did not have leak free joints in the pipe fittings, once the liquid level reached the leak, the leak would act as a vacuum breaker and stop the siphon.

That is correct folks! Don't want the any leaks when drawing every last drop out of the kettle

Hmmm, where you get the idea to use Chore Boy to filter your elixer?

A lot of people use them, I've used the copper ones also. I think it works better if you drain from the side and whirlpool so the trub and hops get drawn to the center...



I built a new one with fine mesh screen that works better because it has 2 inlets.
