You have to select the hinge you want. If you are still having trouble shoot me a PM and I can walk you through it, but I think the link will get you there.. Scroll down to the bottom just below the You Tube Video of the stands.

Cheers
Jay

I'm a keggle brewer and this inquiry started with looking for an easy means of filtering out hop matter from my boil, so I started searching for the best hop spider I could find. I've seen this SS hop spider and was really impressed with the quality from the pictures as far as hop spiders go.

I came across your 15" reverse hinged SS false bottom and #3 Filter and was wondering about it's filtering capabilities.

My thought and concern: It appears your essentially using three layers of the same filtering material to accomplish the filtering. However, the holes still seem fairly large to me for filtering out pellet hops. From my research, SS hop spider mesh is typically on the order of 300-400 microns. Is your false bottom/filter #3 combo adequate for filtering how pellet hop gunk?

I'm excited about your product over the hop spiders because it would filter trub as well, thus 'straining two birds with one filter!' Can you please comment on your filter's ability to filter the pellet gunk as well as cold break?

THANKS!

I believe Jay has posted before that his filters/bottoms won't really work with pellet hops. If you're using whole hops in the boil, it should be fine. The item from Stainless is designed to work with both pellet and whole hops (from what I recall). The only real difference between a regular spider and the one from Stainless is the stainless basket/bag instead of using a nylon bag.

My 6" OD hop spider setup, all stainless except the nylon bag, run me maybe $30 total. That's with stainless legs, ring, nuts (and such) and the stainless worm clamp to hold the bag on.

BTW, I don't see the neurosis over hot break material getting into fermenting vessel. It doesn't do any harm for the brew. If anything, it's of benefit. I don't whirlpool or try to filter out the hot/cold break material in my batches. They still come out very clear in glass. It also doesn't block my plate chiller (a DD wide 40 plate chiller). I use the spider to keep the hop matter out of the chiller. Otherwise, I'd just dump that into fermenting vessel too. Also, there have been tests performed by other HBT members regarding break matter going into the fermenting vessel. It does zero harm and might even do some good for the batch. Basically, get over it already people.

Subbed, this is an interesting thread. I just got my hands on my 3rd and final keg (don't ask) and I'm about to get started on a stand and rig to replace my current system.

I use an IC. I am thinking of ordering jaybirds hop stopper. I do not care if stuff is in my fermenters, i am worried more so on clogging.

Jaybird, will you drill a one inch hole in it? 3/4 inch from the edge.

Pretty much got a 26 gallon update international triclad pot. I used sanitary fittings (welded from a local welder) and a diptube that is a one inch pipe. Pipe only has 3/4 of an inch from the edge.

I am posting here from my phone and it is tuff but.I'll give it a go....yes the level 3 is designed for pellet hops and the trub you get during the boil...yes the holes are all the same
Here is how it works. We know the 15" alone will stop about 80% or more of the pellet hops.and if layered like we do we use hops and trub to create a filter, kind of like you do in the MLT. The way you use it is, at the end of the boil you have to clear out under the level 3 by doing a.quick recirculation to get the hops out of the filter that got in there during the boil. Now as far as the filtration itself I have used the system with well over 16oz of hops in a 10 gallon batch and was, after a quick recirculation able to collect my wort in a carboy with very little hops transferred. Would say the system will easily filter 95 to 97% of your trub and hops. I was able to filter more than that but I dont.want you to think its 100% Its close, very close and the guys that I invented this for ( the plate chillers) are now able to use their plate chillers without clogging. And really thats why it.was built..as a solution to the "pellet hops clogging my chiller" issue....

Jay,


I've been reading all the success guys are having with your FBs and level 3 filter system. I have the 11 gal Bayou Classic kettle used with a plate chiller and I have also been looking for a better way to filter hops. I see on your website you have the 13 1/2 inch FB for that kettle which you say requires a stand. I was wondering if using the level 3 filter (instead of stand) with the 13 1/2 inch FB sitting on top, reversed so hinges are on top, will work for me. Its hard to tell if the level 3 filter will sit flat on the bottom or not.

Thanks for the help!

No a level 3 is built only for the keg conversion kit. I have however custom built stands for guys with different kettles to build in a level 3 stand. It is a custom build and something we need to talk about so I know exactly what we are dealing with and so we can get it right for you. So on that note if you want to discuss it and other options feel free to PM me your # and I can just call you to go over your options.

Jay

Now we just need another free shipping thread from Jay. That would make the cold of this early spring season a bit warmer!

Jay I will be ordering a false bottom from you, just not sure when. Thanks for all of the quick PM responses from you recently. You have been a lot of help. I just spent quite a bit of money on 3 20 gallon Stainless Kettles and all new fittings, so not sure how soon it will be. Maybe by the time I am ready, you will be running a great special! I doubt it though, I never get that lucky....
