I am currently building a sabco clone- I purchased the Sabco FB for the MLT but I have yet to find ANYTHING that is the perfect fit for brewing with 100% pellet hops. I figured if I was going to build a "test brewery" that would be repeatable I might as well use the most reapeatable utilization that I could; Pellet hops. I am using a reverse engineered chill wizard. To the point:
If i purchased this FB from adventures in homebrewing:
And placed this on top of it cut to 12" round
(thus spacing in 1/2" above the FB") and supported it in a few spots with stainless bolts and washers- would the holes- (9/200" in simplest terms...) filter out pellet hops if i did a good whirlpool? clogging potential?
The amazon is 26 gauge sheetmetal, so not the sturdyest in the world, but with a few well placed washers and bolts i would thing that it could be supported well.
