Whirl pooling is nothing more than taking your spoon and spinning the wort in none direction to create a vortex that pulls all the break and hop material to the center of the kettle. Once the whirlpool slows the debris is deposited in a cone in the bottom center if the kettle

I use a 2-winged stirring rod on a power drill , it can whip a really nice vortex into 11 gallons with no trouble at all , leaves a nice cone as well

That would be hot side aeration and while the consequences can be debated, excessive is not a good thing as I understand it.

( waiting for those to chime in and tell me I'm wrong.....)

I stir in such a way that I try to minimize splashing and bubbles for that same reason.

Man, I love this forum. I've learned more in the short time I've been a member here than I could've possibly imagined. Thanks for sharing such great information. I think it's awesome that a 7 year old thread still gets traffic. Wonderful.

Came upon this thread in research on doing a whirlpool. When I view the thread on my ipad, it shows broken links for images. When I view on my computer, there's no pictures at all. Am I the only one who can't see the images from the OP on the first few posts of this thread?

So, I'm trying to work whirlpooling into my brew session and I'm having an issue. I've just installed a 2nd port for the return whirlpool using a pump. Here's a pick depicting the set up of the valves. BTW, this pot is approx 20" in diameter. The whirlpool valve has a 1/2in street elbow on the inside of the pot and the liquid drain valve just has a 1/2in hose bard for now (this was a test).

I was able to things swirling, but there was no visible vortex there. It was almost like the flow was either not strong enough or being disrupted by not have the dip tube. I don't have a depiction of this, but does this make sense? Can anyone offer some advice? I can run it again tonight and upload a picture or video of it if needed. Thanks!

Here is a picture of my whirlpool -- I just use elbows for both and have no issues getting a large trub cone even with and IC. You don't really need a "vortex" like on a stir plate, mine just moves in a very small clockwise movement.
