I've installed pickup tubes in my HLT and MLT (with a false bottom) and now am considering one in the BK as well to reduce the amount of wort lost to "dead space" when I drain it. At the same time, I'd like to minimize the amount of sludge I suck up off the bottom. Is it best to locate the end of the pickup tube against the side wall of the keggle? Should I use an SS squnchy, or something like that, as a filter over the end of the tube?
I'm sorry, Dave, I can't let you brew that.
