Default Blichmann boilermaker whirlpool

Hey HBT! I got a 15g Blichmann Boilermaker for Xmas and was looking to install a whirlpool to run off a March pump on my rig.

What options do I have at my disposal to build this? I'm trying to avoid drilling into the sides of the pot if at all possible. Pictures tell 1,000 words

Thanks everyone!

You could use a compession coupler and connect the hose via barb or coupler, and use some soft copper bent into a long J. Just hang it over the side and into your wort aiming it along the inside of your BK to make a whirlpool.

That would def work! Should it be bent to run just at the surface or would it be best to have it run halfway down the pot?

That would be similar to the whirlpool/recirculation package that morebeer sells. http://morebeer.com/view_product/914...e_-_Option_One

Could probably make your own, but if you use an immersion chiller this looks like a good way to go. Once I get a pump, i will be doing this.
