Default Whirlpool Port location on a Keggle

I searched out before posting, and read that the location ins't that important.
If I am starting out with 5gallon brews and move up to 10gallon brews would the best spot be at the 5gallon mark ??

Just wondering what size brews you do ? Mounting it at the 7gallon point would that be at or just above the pre-boil level of a 5gallon brew ?

Are you talking about a whirlpool on a boil kettle? Wouldn't you want that as close to the bottom as possible to move the most wort?

Mine is at the 3 gallon level and works perfect at a 90`elbow

Mine is at the same height as my drain valve. It works fine for 5 and 10 gal.

Sorry for the confusion, I was looking for info on a Brew Kettle application, but was reading up on a thread for a Mash Tun application.

Ok. For a Brew Kettle application I want to install it as close to the bottom of my Keggle, and in a Mash Tun application some were in the middle ?? Is this correct ??

I just got a new March pump, and am planning on installing a whirlpool in by BK this weekend. I plan on putting it close to the bottom, right above the drain.

If I were installing in the MLT, I would want it as close to the top of the grainbed as possible.

Different recipes = different amounts if grain.

MLT = at the top of the vessel
BK = where ever you want it.

Like said at seven gallons mine points down for a five gallon batch and for 10 gallon batches it's in the middle
