How about a homebrew version of this dry hopper from Stout. (they have a homebrew version already but it does not hold very many hops - https://conical-fermenter.com/dry-hop-doser.html)

Using the wort filter body from brewhardware: https://www.brewershardware.com/tri...rainer-filter-3-od-body-only-refurbished.html

Make the following modifications:

In addition to the above it would require a 1.5" butterfly valve at the top of the fermenter
Process for adding dryhops:
  1. Attach to a closed valve on top of fermenter (think conical or Spike flex.
  2. Purge with CO2 for a couple of seconds in the bottom NPT
  3. Add hops, place cap on top (but do not clamp yet).
  4. Purge with CO2 again, then clamp cap.
  5. Purge again with CO2 - release pressure from TOP valve
  6. Pressurize chamber with CO2 so that higher than fermentor pressure (avoid
  7. Now open valve and let hops drop into fermenter.

I have the brewhardware wort strainer already. It will hold ~20oz of hop pellets

I can make that. Do me a favor and shoot me a PM (or here) with a "Hand CAD" dwg of exactly what you want. I'll shoot you over a quote.

Cheers

Has anyone ever had a tri clamp mount immersion chiller made?
I brew biab in an SS brewtech 1V setup. I like immersion chillers and just stick mine in the pot right on top of the heating coil and recirculate around it.
I was just thinking about it today and the perfect solution for me would be a 1.5" triclamp mounted IC. I use ball lock quick disconnects and would like an in/out on the top/bottom on the outside of the TC.
Does this make any sense?
I can measure how high/wide I'd like it, but does what I'm asking for make sense?

Send me a drawing of exactly what your looking for. We can discuss it.

Probably not the place, but just got my one-off stainless false bottom tonight!
Fits great! Can't wait to brew with it. Thanks Jay and Co!
Pic below is still needing me to cut the dip tube to length...

I have a Foundry 10.5 ordered. Do you know the hole size in the lid? If I wanted to get a steam slayer, would that attach with the Turbo 500 2” triclover connect on your website?
Thanks, and cheers
Tom
