was thinking about one similar for a hop back. Too expensive for me i just use a Y filter on the boiler as the false bottom in the mash tun seems to take care of the crap

I saw them but presumed they would block up very quickly.

At the home brew level I don't really see the point. Trub doesn't seem to have much of an impact on flavour or clarity at the end of the day.

I agree with rlemkin, that's a bit ott trub doesn't do much harm to your beer infact it adds nutrients to the yeast and can easily be cleared by dropping into a secondary after a week. If I was that bothered I would use the money for a conical fermenter which you can drain the trub off without having to use a secondary fv.

If you're having issues with trub, a conical fermenter will let you blast it all out after fermentation...

I have a conical so probably won't bother.

It was more for putting inline with a plate chiller so I could recirc the wort through that. More then reducing or stopping the break material getting into the FV.

I have a worry about picking up an infection with the plate chiller as I cannot actually see its clean inside.

I followed someones woes after investing in something very similar from a well known US supplier of shiny brew kit, it involved a kettle drain upgrade to a wider bore and tri clamp flange valve, and it clogged rapidly until a SS pan scrubby was sat in the drain mouth prior to the tube filter, and i suspect would do just as good a job on its own.. ;) So i would take a punt on a SS pan scrubby from the pound shop first ;)

edit.. iirc the tube filter from the US was targeted at filtering 'dry hops' from a conical fermentor which could take pressure to drive the beer out through the filter..
