Thanks for starting a thread. I've never had luck with the BrewMagic board. I was able to sign up a couple years ago, but it seems noone posts there on a regular basis.

Anyway, the BM has been on my radar for a few years and will finally come to fruition this year with the aid of a new house with a large garage to keep it in!

Just signed up so I'll apologize now if I am not following posting rules or if this has been asked already in a different thread.

I have seen where people are talking about the whirlpooling in the (HLT) sparge kettle, but does anyone whirlpool their beer before sending off to the fermenter in order to get any trud or unwanted sediment out? In talking to SABCO, they told me that there's no need with their Brew-Magic system which I highly doubt and disagree. Has anyone done this and do you care to share your method?

Thanks.

I utilize a hop grant with rice hulls to act as a Hot break and pellet filter. And I recirculate to get the boiler temp down enough for a one pass pitch temp to fermeter. I don't want any of that getting into my chiller. i know I lose some cold break this way as well but, my beers are clear.

Great thread all...it's nice to find some fellow Brew Magic users now that their forum is shut down. I've been having efficiency issues, and now have several things to try this weekend thanks to this post.

So how does the Brew Magic "magically" prevent loads of hops & trub from entering my plate chiller? No whirlpool?

I bought a trub filter from brewershardware.com and it works great. It goes between the chiller and the bk. I couldn't find any other solutions but am happy as hell with what I found.

They have a facebook group. Just need to email them for access. It sucks because its a facebook group and not a more searchable forum setup. But people are active there if you have a question.

Read through most of the thread and needing some advice. I am new BM user, the manual says 150% of recipe volume. Can I just calculate as I would for normal AG brewing? 1.25 qt/lb for mash and 1.5 qt/lb for sparge and run my recipe normally that way?
