SOLD



Complete Tri-Clover Filter/Strainer as seen on https://www.brewershardware.com/FILTER1.html

Includes:
.2 mesh filter screen
.3 mesh filter screen

$135 shipped
Save around $35 if bought from website.

Selling to fund a electric brew system for small winter batches.



I bought it from another member in the forum and he used it only a few times. He had a great deal of difficulty and decided to sell.

I followed the advice found here:

I was mindful of tubing length and how they draped and had NO problems following this setup.

Interested. How did you like its performance? Why are you getting rid of it again?

Before I bought this I was using a plate chiller and a hop sock. However, I wanted to let my pellet hops boil freely, but I was concerned about clogging the chiller. That is why I bought it.

After arrival it allowed me to send the wort directly to the chiller with out fear of clogging my plate chiller.

The original seller to me was forthright in his struggles with clogging and slow flow rates, but I was determined to put this unit through its paces. I followed the instructions as listed on the company webpages for set up. It performed just fine the 5 brews I did with it.

Be mindful that it is quite long and heavy when all the clamps and valves are in place. I had to find a way to elevate my kettle to get high enough, and I had to re do my pump and chiller plumbing as well. It is way over kill for my set up, as I only do 5 gal net batches.

I currently have approximately 35 gal of beer, some ready to drink now, the rest are conditioning. That should tide me over while I build the electric rig and start brewing again.

I am no longer using a plate chiller, I am now using a counter flow chiller instead. I whirl pool as well to separate the material. My brew sessions are small batches, and these alternative techniques seem to work just fine for me.

Sounds like you and I are in about the same boat. I looked at this product a while back and decided it was overkill for my setup.

how difficult is cleaning out the screens? I currently use hop bags with my chiller, and while they're fine for most of my 10 g batches I'll be stepping up to 1bbl soon and i can't imagine lifting out a bag of wet hops for that size of a batch.

Its really easy,

Just clean them as you would your hop sacks!

Hose them out to get the bulk material, and wash in foamy PBW, rinsing immediately.
