It you use the Quick connectors above on both ends of the hose, you could immersion chill, transfer,
wash down, drain all with the same hose

These are brilliant, very, very similar to Hose lock connectors, but in the correct thread size.

....and they JUST fit the Malt Miller hose....

Twenty four hour brew day ? My brew day is five hours and the BM is completely emptied without a pump or modification. The secret is a BacBrewing Springer.

This is a much more elegant solution than the Braumiester wort pump device. Apart from a bit of time to mod, are there anything else to consider?

I'm based in Oz, but we use BSP as standard, so the parts should be available here. Any Aussies who's done this mod?

The 3 way is the most difficult to get. Everything else is plumbing supplies.

Ebay was really really handy.

What about higher grain bills, have you noticed any difference from the extra pathway the pump has to work through?

I've just ordered the 3 way and it's coming in from China, but not in a rush as it's the holidays for us here anyway.

Thank You!

Yup - its were I got the inspiration. Its easier on a 50 'cos you have more room to work.
Just do 1 tap and pick the pump that lines up best.

That sounds good.

Do I need to deactivate the other pump in that case?

It depends what you want it for ....

I use mine for pumping to be a fermenter, draining off the crud & washing down.

If you just want to be able to drain to the fermenter - simply keying off one of the pump 'in' elbows will do that and is the simplest solution.

If you want to be able to pump to a fermenter - you could consider Building and adapter which fits on centre rod, This would utilise both pumps. But you can't properly washed down with this in place.

Tinkering about with the pumps is fiddly, but I certainly like being able to do everything. Pumping, draining & cleaning easily and quickly. You could use one pump (l/h when inverted) and mount a simple isolator switch.

This is cleanest and easiest IMO. You could pipe both pumps using a pair of 3-way diverter valves, but I think for the gain the pipework would be a mare....
