So I wanted a hopback and didn't feel like dropping $90 to buy one. Solution... Make one.
I bought a cheap $18 water filter at Home Depot and a few parts. The best part is that if the unit deforms after a dozen batches because of the heat it is only $18 to replace the unit, the plumbing is interchangeable.
Pahhts... Cost me $40 in total cause Home Depot has run every decent hardware store out of business and now you can only get half as much for twice as much.
Finally found a use for a tea strainer...
Pack that Bad Larry up...
Still used the ol' tried and true "Late Hop Addition" to my 60 Minute Clone
"The Money Shot."
Out of the Brew Kettle, thru the Hop Back into the Counterflow Chiller, straight into the fermenter.
Here's a parts list
2 x 3/4" male threaded to 1/2" sweat couplings
2 x 1/2" sweat to 1/2" female threaded couplings
2 x 1" stubs of 1/2" copper tubing
one water filter housing
solder/flux soldering gun
I have triclover fittings on my rig so I needed to have the female coupling so my 1/2" triclover could screw into that. If you don't you would want to use hose fittings.
