Ideas?
Put your screen on top of the Blichmann false bottom. It will provide a solid surface for it to sit upon.

You could try the hop stopper I built (see the link in my signature). It costs $10 and worked great with leaf hops. I haven't tried it with pellet hops yet, but I think it would work OK.

So any progress on this? I was thinking of exactly the same thing you were.

I would like to recirculate back to the bk after the plate chiller to help cool down faster. It might also help filter cold break better.

No progress on this as i have been cleaning up the details of my BCS build and programming that...and most importantly BREWING BEER!!!!

Its on the list of to do ...but I'm whirlpooling for the time being and that is working very well, but takes an extra 30-45 minutes.
