Keg dip tube screen?
« on: October 23, 2016, 12:52:42 AM »
A week or so ago, someone posted a link for a nice dip tube screen and I didn't bookmark it.  Can't find it again.  :(
Many of us would be on a strict liquid diet if it weren't for pretzels.

I'm currently dealing with the remnants of hop pellets from dry hopping clogging the poppet. Would this be effective against pellets or just whole leaf? Thanks.

Curious as well.  I would be concerned that the clog would move to screen instead of poppet

A screen paired with a slight shortened dip tube works well.

You can also make your own smaller screens for the dip tube. I used some extra stainless steel hose braid, rolled up and trimmed the end. I have only used them with whole hops, though.

I been using these for a few years. Doesn't work as well with pellets. Leaf is fine. Wish they would make a slightly smaller micron size to see if it would help with pellets.

I've seen screens in the past that have laser drilled holes. I only saw it from one online shop and they didn't carry it last I looked.

ETA - Found it at AHB - http://www.austinhomebrew.com/Dip-Tube-Screen_p_4768.html&utm_source=google&utm_medium=shopping?gclid=CjwKEAjwnebABRCjpvr13dHL8DsSJABB-ILJVQLaJYPksQh6K1mhc6VC1YWdME8mr_yGW-V5KLgxCxoC1z7w_wcB
