Hi guys for all those out there that use a stainless steel braided hose for a hop filter. Any tips on how to remove the inner rubber liner. Any offers really appreciated.

I hack sawed the end connectors off and then used long nosed pliers to pull out the inner tube. You will need to use jubilee clips to connect them to your tap in the boiler so it doesn't matter too much how neat the ends are.

First post on the forum, hope this is useful.

I am stripping tap adapters to harvest the braids for my silicon hose..... The fast and efficient way i found is to cut the ends off, pull the rubber with one set of pliers, and using another set of pliers, push the braid up the rubber pipe. Process of removing the braid takes less than 10 seconds if you get it right with minimal damage...
