Starsan or any other cleaning agent is the last thing you want in your mash/boil.

Starsan isn't a 'cleaning agent' :roll:

I bought the rubber seal that goes on the bottom of the malt pipe and used it for the top filter plate. it needs to be cut and then wrapped around the filter plate and the excess cut off.

Does anyone know where I can buy that seal in the USA? Thanks.

I had a fair bit of a gap between the filter plate and the malt pipe and the seal works great . it is a fairly tight fit so i guess it will depend on if you really need it or not. i did need something because too much grain was gettintg through.

Just used the 01 last brew. 6kg grain, 30L water, no sparge.
A little bit tight to fit both the filter plate and fine mesh together inside the malt pipe.
Used it around the filter plate only, perfect seal, no grain at all. Easy to remove the plate with it and the fine mesh afterwards, during the mash, to stir the grain once in a while. Gonna use it every brew.

Good idea, Luis. I too found it too tight with the mesh filter included. The diameter of the my mesh is slightly bigger than the plate. Looks like yours is too. Might give mine a trim if I'm happy with the results :cheers:

I would guess that an oversized piece of 'cheese cloth' would work quite well. It has a bit of thickness and is very porous and act as a sort of filter to keep grains from going around the filter plate. It might also be useful to aid in pulling both the screen and plate out as a unit as it will overlap the top of the plate a bit. I haven't tried it yet.. but sounds 'good on paper' :beerbang:

Has anyone tried 3/8 beer line? Slit along one side and fitted to the filter, not the mesh it seems to fit perfectly. Are then any temperature issues using this material?

What I did was lay the mesh over the screen on the centre tube and mark the circumference of the screen onto the mesh with a black texta type marking pen.
Once the mesh is marked get a quality pair of scissors and trim the mesh to the circumference pf the screen.

By doing this when you lift the top plat out the mesh comes with it.
To ensure it always stays together I bolted the mesh to the screen.

@Mashman,

I used a small silicon tube cut down the length of it and it worked quite well, but I found the molded seal just a bit easier to use. I cant remember off hand the size of the tube I used but it was fairly small.

Cheers Dicko, I just found my snips at the bottom of my 'lost' tool box. (The misses thinks I left in the UK :lol:) Will you send me a new mesh screen, if it doesn't work? :lol:

Hey mate, check the latest video in the BM video section.
The author of the u tube vid uses a polyester screen called "Pet Mesh".
It looks interesting. :D

I use some polyester door/window screen mesh called "Petmesh" as seen in my latest number 4 YouTube video. Works great and its sealed with "U" profile rubber section and held on with clips.
