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?

I know I'm a little late to the party but wanted to show how I created my filter plate seals using silicone rubber extrusion and a special silicone RTV in the USA. I started by obtaining a 10ft length of silicone u-channel from McMaster Carr #4869A76 in orange color along with a special silicone-silicone bonder (RTV) from a company called Silicone Solutions part number SS-67B. I then simply cut the extrusion slightly undersized to allow for a tight fit and created a simply jig to hold the two cut ends together whilst the RTV cured (only 10mins or so but full cure in 72hrs). In the end my glue seam was a little rough but I can now say after several brews that the part works beautifully! Hope this helps anyone still looking for a clean way to do this!

I couldn't fine any mention of the Bac filters on this thread.

Are these any good in terms of keeping loose grain at bay?

If you are talking about filters from inoxia I absolutely love mine. Bumped the diameter a couple mm and it fits snug. As paulg suggests, contact them directly.

Does using the rubber gasket around the filters interfiere with the free floating of the top filter plate? Is the top filter supposed to free float, and if so how is mashing affected if the filter is jammed in the malt pipe? Thanks.

No issue for me - mine was a PITA the ONLY time it didn't have a seal on it.

Thanks Mashy. Do you know whether or not either one of the top filter plates must be free floating or it makes no difference?

Nothing in mine floats, and never has for years.
