Es ist zwar ein sehr gutes Bier, die Goslarische Gose; doch wenn man meint, sie sey im Bauch, so liegt sie in der Hose.

Looks great an fits well.

Will brew something hoppy for next batch to assess design quality and report


Are you still using this in your brew process? What is your verdict on the filter that Chad built for you?

Hi guys,
I made one last year , hand stitched with stainless wire (few bloody fingers!)
Wasn't really impressed due to lack of rolling boil inside the spider,
Have to say I went back to muslin sacks and a 60g in hop rocket before plate chiller
Feel free to copy but mind those fingers!
The mesh and wire can be brought from the usual internet action sites

Today I made my version of the dip tube for the 20 l Braumeister. It is very similar to the version of BrauTim.

The gauze I used was the outside part of a flexible water hose.

I prevented the use of hoze clips by cutting a 2 cm split in the flexible part of the gauze using a mini grinding wheel. The legs of the T-piece can be brought in that split with some patience.

The nice part of this dip tube is that it fits between the wall of the kettle and the heating spiral. Therefor it fits well.

That looks good. I tried to make a version of brew tim s dip tube for the 20 l but gave up as the heating coils got in the way. I fancy having a go so may copy your design,
. Thanks

I like this version, good design.

Can I just ask a couple of questions before I go to the plumbers merchant.

From a parts perspective am I right in thinking you have a 15mm elbow at the top, then a 15mm to 10 mm reducer, then a 10mm T at the bottom.

My plan is not to use the flexible hose but to use 10mm pipe with holes drilled in the underside which will lie around the edge of the BM against the floor in a complete ring, if it works.

Good you asked: the elbow is 15mm, the reducer converts from 15 to 12 mm and the T-piece is also 12 mm. I choose for 12 mm to have a tighter fit with the hose and also to be able to use a hose with slightly larger holes. It is important to stretch the hose a bit so that the holes become larger.

If think your suggested set-up should work although it seems to me it is more difficult to clean the inside

Hi, thanks for the confirmation. I'm hoping if I can get away with not soldering the bottom ring into the T piece I will be able to use a thin bottle brush to clean inside the bottom pipe. Not that I ever cleaned inside my copper pipe hop strainer in my old boiler.

Kloekus,

I like the look of the dip tube. What are you using to connect it from the copper pipe to the side of the kettle?
any chance of a side view?

I have ground down a cork, used a short barb, 90degree SS elbow and then cut down and old bazooka filter and got some success. It pushes the malt pipe over a bit as the elbow is quite large. Dropped the dead space from 5L to 250ml (with minimal tipping).

All that concerns the pipes it to the plumbers https://youdo.com/india/chennai-services/repair-renovation-services/plumbers/. I didn`t even venture to fix a doorknob. Cuz, this can result in apocalypse, or major repairs)
