I'm considering adding a KettleValve ( to my Bayou Classic brew kettle. Is there anything I can use on the inside of the kettle to screen out pellet hop trub? I've seen the Kettle Screen, but it looks like it will clog pretty easily.

Whirlpool and you a nylon strainer bag. Though you will still have a lot of hop debris that goes through the bag. But, the strainer keeps a lot of debris also.

Bazooka T-screen and whirlpooling. I recommend the T, so it won't interfere with whirlpooling. It may clog anyway when making an IPA, but you can scrape the tubes off to restore the flow.
