Whirlpool attachment

Unread post by Sladek789 »

I simply want to share a Whirlpool attachment modification I found on norbrygg.no, a Norwegian homebrewing forum.

The idea is just awesome and as I have not found anything similar on this forum (I might have badly looked), I wanted to share it with all.

The original post (in Norwegian but google translate is everyone's friend): https://forum.norbrygg.no/threads/wirlp ... del.15510/
If, BjarneHB, the Norwegian homebrewer name on the forum is here too. Two things, first great idea and how is your experience using it, still work great?

I guess the only problem is that the pump switches off at approx. 88 °C, so you will have to wait a while for the boiled wort to cool before you could whirlpool.

You always whirpool hot - at least when adding whirpool hops. The temperature is likely to be 90C or above.

Ooer. OK. I just chuck mine in the hop strainer and stir them.... What is the benefit of whirlpooling?

It's useful for those with BAC Spring filters. A bit of trub cone prevents it from clogging up.

Intereted to know how good it is for whirlpooling whole hop cones.

Can't help but think, this is another commercial/industrial beer process we are adopting "'cos they do it". When is reality we don't have the problem to solve in the first place.
