Default Need help with all grain procedure

I have been all grain brewing for about a year. I use pellet hops. I have a brew kettle with a faucet.

My question is how do I strain the hop particles out of the wert to put I through a plate chiller? What have others done? Do you have screens?

You can also whirlpool, then let the wort settle for about 30 minutes. Then pump through the chiller into the fermentor.

I need to build a hop spider.
Since I have the day off I actually went down to the local store to pick up parts for one today.
Unfortunately they had the nerve to be closed on Thanksgiving!

I use whole hops and a false bottom. Works great except when I forget the false bottom.

Just DON'T use PVC parts in your hop spider. They fail/get super soft at about 180F, so if you don't have it away from the steam, it will soften, deform, and droop into your wort (NOT a good thing). I also believe it releases nasty compounds when it hit those temps too.

I made my spider from all stainless steel parts (plus a nylon mesh bag) so that I wouldn't need to worry about heat with it.

I went with a 6" diameter stainless cake form... Amazon has it pretty damned cheap. I was able to drill and tap three holes in it, easily. Put some threaded rod through it, acorn nuts inside, lock wash and regular nut outside and basically good to go (just add nylon bag size you need).
