I'm guessing it sits in the pump out inside the bm.
Turn on pump and it will pump your bm until empty.

The one for the 50l straddles the 2 pump outs.

If you look in the Modifications section you will find DIY versions and save a lot of money.

There are videos on YouTube. It attaches to the centre post and drops over the outlet in the floor of the BM, secured by the wingnut. Quite clever really and easier than modding pipework.

Yes, personally prefer a clean and easy solution. But What’s the main benefit of pumping out from the BM as opposed to letting gravity do its thing?

Gandalf made a good job of one of these.

This is what I did.. (smidge more involved)

whats does it do?


Only for use with a hop basket, I presume?
To brew or not to brew, that would be a stupid question !

I see it as an adaptor to get the pump connected to a hose.

Then you can use it for allsorts - pumping out to FV, circulation, washing down etc.

It will move all your trub into the fermentor.

Nope sorry. That's not one of its features.

It seems to me similar to when taking the first pint from a keg, all the gunk comes first

The whirlpool gets it all the the middle, and the draining is still gentle enough not to drag it in.

To be fair a little wouldn't hurt anyway - perhaps even beneficial to flavour & yeast.

Bumping this thread to see what people think of the pump device. Personally I've used it on 4 batches so far and it's worked well so far, better than tipping the BM to transfer.

I replaced the flimsy hose with a thicker silicone so no more kinking especially when whirlpooling. Whirlpooling brings wort down during chilling much faster than how I use to manually with a spoon.

If you brew a hoppy beer I'd recommend a hop spider or bagging your hops, I did have a clogged pump on a hoppy Pils where I didn't use my hop spider.

Transferring wort is nice but the insert plug in the suction hole is too tall and it will leave quite a bit of wort behind. I'm looking at cutting mine down or just removing it. I get a pretty good trub cone from whirlpool so not much trub in transfer until the end when it starts to creep towards the suction hole.

I agree, to use these you need hop container of some sort. I opted for the Mangrove Jack. Brilliant - little coarser than most, but the circulation and efficiency is better.

Silicon tube is a must as well. Buy the fittings and use the same tube for your Chiller coil.

I am a big fan of pumping wort out. As I see it here are three options.
In terms of easiness.
1. Buy this from Speidel
2. Better - build one like Gandalf's, with a bit of copper tube.
3. Better still - Put in a lower pump tap. This is the most fiddly, but additionally makes wash-up sooooooo much easier and quicker.......and get a bog brush :D

The answer is to use BacBrewing Springer. With no external pump it will leave two litres of wort with a pump it leaves less than a litre. Combined with a plate chiller shortens the brewday on the fifty litre by one hour.
