I have a couple but yeast removal, at least with mine, is not satisfactory

Bummer! We have a little 14 gallon one at brewery maybe I'll play around with it soon.

How about containing the hops in a mesh container in a keg and periodically jumping the beer back and forth to another, à la torpedo?   Oxygen pickup at the outset would still be a problem. Maybe just flush that keg with CO2 the best you can.  Anyway it's just an idea you could play with.
I use a sure screen (works better than a mesh bag and allows the hops to be commando rather than constrained).  I used to flip the keg every day to reagitate the hops, but got lazy and haven't done that in some time.  Since I make 10 gallon batches, a test of flipping (which would marginally simulate what keith is doing) one keg and not the other might be interesting to try out.

Yeah that's way simpler.  I guess Keith can't really flip his tanks LOL,  recirc is the only option at that scale.  Maybe this is one of those cases where homebrewers are actually at an advantage.

I think this is a case where having a conical has an advantage. But agree there are multiple ways to achieve the same ends.

Maybe a self priming pump but you would have to get beer off yeast. Anyone who has a conical should certainly give it a go. A March pump would do the trick.

I'll share what has given me an amazing burst of hop flavor: Recirculating dry hops for 12+ hours with a pump. I realize this isn't necessarily practical on the homebrew scale but man does it ever make a difference. After 12 hours recirc cold crash and package.

That's like saying grapes are the same as raisins. Not the same.

I'm not ignoring the fact that one form is hydrated and the other is not, but the fact is that their sugars are the same. No significant heating, so the Maillard effects shouldn't be influencing.

I like that 2 old dudes are discussing prunes on the internet.  ;)

Why aren’t prunes in this discussion?  They’re the same thing.

I added some plum puree to a barrel a couple months ago (saison) it was pretty tasty last time I tried it.

I recommend some edging material so you don’t slice your arm/hand.

Something like this; https://www.brewhardware.com/product_p/edgingft.htm

I had forgotten about that fascinating blog. Such great and interesting information!

Seems like there should be countless better options out there for stainless food grade cool ships apart from cutting a keg open but I guess I can't think of any right now....

Don't do a protein rest unless that Pils malt is about 60 years old.

+1 no need for protein rest with most of today's malts

There's being frugal and then there is just being dumb. Grow up some liquid yeast. In 1-2week you could grow up a 70 hectoliter pitch from a single colony and have a batch you can be sure is pure rather than messing around and failing in the end product.

We ban any distilling talk on this forum. Sorry. There are other forums that talk distilling do a search for them.
