I recently started using a keggle after installing a ball valve and dip tube (center pickup). I guess I didn't read up enough, because both of my batches so far have gotten horribly clogged. For the first one I used a SS bazooka tube, like those used in cooler MLT but looped back on itself to form a circle. For the second, I removed the bazooka tube and just hoped the cold break and hop sludge would flow through the pickup tube as I was planning to filter on the other side, as it flowed into the fermenter. Well, it stuck again. Immediately.
So, my question is, what kind of filtration system works with an immersion chiller and pellet hops? I've read the false bottoms and hopstoppers are out due to cold break matter and I'd rather avoid using a hopsock as I want full utilization.
Thanks in advance...
