Could you not sleeve it with a bit of silicone hose?

I use a "Big Dipper". I had to cut a little off the tube so as not to foul the malt pipe.

Finally got the tube back with the grooves cut. It works perfectly with a 20mm OD x 1.5mm CS silicone oring. There is enough play in it to push into the hole further to move pickup away from the tribe come which also slight raises the height of the pickup by a few mm, if you want to have the pickup very close to the base of the pot (but closer and probably into the trub cone) you can have it sitting further out of the hole.

Very happy and looking forward to giving it a run and tipless Brau brewing

Looks good. Are you using this with long syphon hose on the tap?

I think you will be very pleased. Really nice work. Have you run it with water yet ?
