No prbs b.t.w with the hint :beer: :beer:

Will do :beer: :drink: :D


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.

Cool will give that size a go too!

OK guys I'm new to the wonderful world of BM....mine arrived yesterday, one of the first things I'm doing is order some of Silicone Edging Strip but what wall thickness (A on the diagram) would you go for??? It's food grade and will stand high temp....so win win :wink:

As for the pet mesh...you have to order a meter at £18, now I know I'm a Yorkshire guy but that's "best part of a yup of pennies". What's wrong with Muslin Cloth?? made up into a bag and slip over the bottom filter, my only worry would be the finer we go on this mesh, does it become harder for the pump??

I watched Big Teds video only the other day, Hi Ted Image I took on board your bit about cutting down the pipe on the top filter....may do that next week.

Is the mesh to replace failed stainless mesh filters that come with it?

I ask because I have always found these perfectly okay. But I do fit a siliconseal around the top plate.

I have an 81 cm long piece of bright red silicon tube. It is 7mm OD with 2mm wall.
Let it settle to its own accord on the bench, then sticky tape it down from end to end. And then run a razor blade up it to cut one wall.

I've just noticed that the Polymax link I posted...Scozia_Joe had already posted earlier on...it seems to come down to 3018101. I put a mic on the top plate and it's 1.5/1.6 so looking good to me.

I had been in discussion with these guys http://www.plastok.co.uk/associates-products.php regarding replacement for the steel mesh with fabric ones. Had some good email communication and a sample sent out. They promised to supply based on requirements below but then all went radio silent. Perhaps someone else can have a go and see if they have any luck.

My requirements were as per below.

Dimensions of the Spiedel disc are diameter 265mm with a 17mm diameter hole in the centre

4 discs in total 2 at 500 micron and 2 at 1mm (For experimentation)

I can understand why adding a rubber seal to the top plate to a good idea.

But why we are replacing the stainless steel mesh?

Because they fray at the edges over time and end up a mess to handle.

Thanks... Was not sure if they were being replaced as an update or because they were tired.
