  • Posted in thread: How do you whirlpool? on 07-22-2015 at 05:54 PM
    I do the cheap and easy method. I use my immersion chiller to drop down to the temp I want to
    whirlpool at. Then I remove it, throw in the hops, stir, put on the lid. I stir every 5 minutes
    and replac...

    Not sure if it would matter but my HLT is kind of short and fat while I have a taller brew
    kettle. Not sure if that would cause some pressure differences but I don't see how I wouldn't
    be getting enou...

    So I got my pick up tube working by installing a 3/8" barb and tubing on my HLT. I'm a little
    confused cuz I put the same size pick up tube in my brew kettle, just side wall mounted, and it
    works like...

    Is the inside diameter of the dip tube smaller than the tubing leading to the pump?Yes it is.
    The dip tube is 1/2" OD while tubing is 1/2" ID. Is that letting air in and killing siphon? I'm
    not exactl...

    I'm confused, your saying it won't drain below the valve? For a syphon to work you'll need to
    attach some tubing on the outside of the kettle and make sure it drains below the elevation of
    the bottom ...

    Is the opening bottoming out and sealing to the bottom of the pot?No, I don't believe so. There
    is a 1/2" or so between the dip tube inlet and the bottom.

    I just installed a center dip tube on my HLT but am having issues with a strong flow and with
    it sucking below the valve level. I've read it could be an issue with letting air in and
    breaking the siph...

    If you are only fermenting for a short period (2-3 weeks), there really isn't much need to go
    to a secondary. you just can get some off flavor a by leaving your beer sitting with all that

    I went and bought a couple of side pick up tubes from bargain fittings. One as a whirlpool arm
    with a 90 elbow. I'll just recirc the wort through the pump and let it sit for 20-30 mins to
    settle befor...

    I expect to get shot for saying this, but here goes....At flame out I stir round and round and
    get a good whirlpool effect going. Then I slap the lid on the pot and walk away for about 4-5
    hours. I co...
