But I still have a BrewMagic, don't I?

God no. He still brews with a cooler and something from the toilet.

Thanks. Was the best solution I could muster to protect my investment on a overpriced Sabco chill station. A 50 pound sack of rice hulls only cost $35 so it made sense to me.

Aside from lack of use of course, but hey, both work.

I'm curious, what is the temp of the wort coming out of the hopback?

I ask because doesn't the cold break start at something like 140F? So unless your wort is getting down below that by the time it gets through the hopback, you aren't going to get much cold break material caught in there.

I recirculate the wort until I attain pitch temp inline. The primary use of the hulls is to trap the hot break and pellet debris prior to chiller inlet since no matter what you do with a plate chiller the cold break will be formed within the chiller itself.

Just a simple 6 quart hop back/grant with a false bottom. Same principle as a rocket without a tri-clamp sealed lid.

I have a hop stopper screen on the bottom of my kettle. I guess I will try to recirculate from chiller back into kettle and see if that is enough to keep my pellet hops and break out of the fermenter. I don't know if I'm asking for trouble
