This was first explained by....Whirlpool should be performed after chilling and removal of the immersion chiller.I had the same thought!I'm considering this. Think it would work with a siphon instead of a dip tube and bulkhead?The first glance made think it was an air filter from a carbureted car back when. Maybe a vendor had excess tooling to make these?
If one uses an immersion chiller, wouldn't it get in the way of that?
I don't understand how it works. Whirlpools push the break out to the sides where gravity pulls them down and to the center. If that things gasket is on the bottom, how is break getting in the middle?
I suppose I can see it working, if I squint really hard...
