So hot run.

Disappointing. Got the obvious 'tide mark' gunge off with a loo brush as normal.
The purpose of this project was I really wanted it to remove the shite from the element. It didn't.
Can someone check my dosage please? 60g of PBW in 10 litres @ 35c.
Stopped at 35c because of the pump limitation...... and this has given me a better idea.

A small nozzle on the inlet from the BM pump. Just create a bit of movement.
Use enough water to cover the elements. Run at 55c with a dishwater tab.
No pump - no messing and HOTTER.

I clean mine by clearing out the worst of the debris that is easy to remove and then adding about 12 litres of water and a couple of dessert spoons of PBW, heat to 55 degrees c and leave for half an hour with the pump running, occasionally brushing everywhere, then rinse. It works well no faffig about with extra pumps, pipe work and cip balls.
I like the idea of trying a dishwasher tablet, PBW isn't cheap

Richard

I think you might be onto something.

Does that get rid of the furry element crud?

It removes most of it, the rest comes off with a quick brush

Next up for testing is an unidentified nozzle that was given to me.
Nozzle #4.jpg
Fits the BM pump 'out' port perfectly and creates some turbulence, that and a dishwasher tab @55c.

Probably after Xmas now.

That's an aerator nozzle. You put it on the end of your hose going into the top of your fermenter and it aerates the wort as you transfer... Would be interested to see how you go using it upside down though for washing... :)

Mashy,

They have them here https://www.craftbrewer.com.au/siphon-s ... rt-aerator. Only problem is that it's on the other side of the planet.

If you can't get them locally I could assist you.

Hop and Grape here in the UK used to sell them - I was going to get one, but now use a wine aerator I had knocking around - it works a treat

Thanks chaps. "Siphon Spray Wort Aerator" doh - I tried searching for all sorts to no avail.

I have high hopes* for it as a cleaning add on. It creates a good flow towards the elements, which is my cleaning target.

*bugger I said that about the pond pump too didn't I :D
