I went the expensive option and now have a BracBrewing yield increase disk and a micro filter disk. It wasn't any extra postage to add it to the order which also included replacement filter disks and springer kit.

So now on the top of the grain bed I place new replacement filter, BM top disc normal way up, BacBrewring Micro filter and finally BacBrewring pieced disk.

The idea is there is now a space between the BM disc and BacBrewring disk to trap the escaped grains. The BacBrewing filter and disk are the same width and the lip on the malt pipe stopping the grains from escaping. Also the extra space between the BacBrewing disk and BM plate should help to reduce fountains if one occurred from spilling the wort since the fountains is now going to hit the BacBrewing disk first.

Keep an eye on your efficiencies - you are effectively bunging up the malt tube.

Makes the pump work harder = less flow = less efficiency.

Just a thought.

I did buy the new large mesh BM 50L replacement disc which is 1.5mm * 1.5 mm compared to the old 0.9mm * 0.9mm replacement disk. Will keep an eye on efficiencies.

Any update on your thoughts on this as you appear to have used both the small and large holed replacement plates?
