For the MT I plan on using the jaybird false bottom. Not sure what level filter stand I want to use below it but most likely two or three.
My biggest concern is the BK. What are you guys doing to minimize the cold break and any other trub from escaping the BK. I'm using a plate chiller to cool the wort and will be using a hop spider to contain the hop pellets
In your MLT save your money and just use the level 1 stand. Its the best for the money for the MLT. Now for the boil kettle a 15" reverse hinge and a level 3 is the way to go. It will strip out most all the cold break and the pellet hops. Its nice because you then get the freedom to toss the pellet hops directly in the kettle.
