Default SS braided hose

Just wondering how do you get the plastic hose pipe out once you cut the ss braid? And is that a better method than a manifold?

Pull the braid back and grab a pair of needle-nose pliers. Grab the rubbery inner tube and pull it straight out.

Edit: stupid question, but you did cut both ends, right?

You need to make sure you are not pulling on the SS braid. The harder you pull, the tighter it gets. I had better luck pushing the braid off of the tubing.

By the way, you might want to wear some leather gloves when you do this. It really hurts when a single stainless wire impales your finger.

Hold the rubber tube with some needlenose pliers and grab the braid right at the end you're holding and pull it towards the other end. You'll open up the braid that way and it will almost FALL off of the hose.

Yes, it's like those "Chinese handcuffs/fingertraps" of days of yore (not sure if they have another name now, or even if they really were Chinese).

Grab the braid about three inches from an end. With your other hand, push the end of the braid (but not the tubing within--just the braid) towards your other hand. The braid should be compressing, getting wider.

Then, pinch the end of the braid that you just moved down against the tubing within. Then, release the other hand (the one that was holding it initially). The braid should pop down the tubing a little. Follow that pattern until you can just pull out the tube.

Is an SS braid-filter better than a manifold? I'm not sure, but it's quicker to make. I would think that the manifold is more durable but have been assured that the SS braid is sufficiently durable for the amount I will mash. I'm quite sure that, if you were to brew batches consistently larger than five-gallon batches, a manifold or false bottom would be preferred at those scales.

NB: Palmer suggests nothing narrower than a 1" diameter braid for durability reasons.

Cheers

No! I was planning on using the connector at one end. On to plan B

I was looking at the assembly the same way thinking hey, it would be great to connect the braid with the connector but you have to have a way of getting the hose out which is crimped on the end. No way. In fact if you had a way to pull the hose out from that crimp, the braid would pull out too!

Very good advisory. I ended up getting blood on my tools when I made a SS braid

Then again, I don't feel like I've accomplished anything until I draw blood or create a golf ball sized blister on my hand.
