Make a BAC disk

Unread post by mashy »

What to try a Bac brewing recipe? Heres the hack & spend cents not bucks!

Make one from the stuff you already have (well almost)

Get a bit of silicone seal (or silicone pipe and slice it).
It needs to be over size of the malt pipe. So that it doens't slip down.
Place the mesh goes OVER the post -you will be installing is upside down.
Fit the seal round the edge of the plate and mesh together.
The seal will hold the mesh in place. This does work best wet.
Install this upside down on the centre rod. No bar, just wing nut.
Sorted.

If anyone is interested I will lookup the measurements - did mine soooooo long ago I forgot.

Nice video. I would still like a seal around that, but the ss/copper pipe is a good idea.

What stops the malt pipe from lifting when the pump starts?

The central tube, when you tighten nut the central tube makes pressure on the lower disc.

Wezzel, 15mm (household) copper will do the same trick - locks it in place.
