I bought a Bazooka T awhile back for my converted keg. I have used it a couple times for my boils and had pretty good results filtering WHOLE hops and the break. I do not believe it would work with pellets an would most likely clog quickly.

This past weekend, I used my keggle/Bazooka T to mash in and it was AWESOME!! I mashed about 43lbs of grain in my keggle and it only took about 2qts to clear and had no problems colllecting wort. I was wondering how well it would work and was definetely happy that it performed flawless.

When racking the wort to the fermenter, we used a CFC and the Bazzoka did a great job of filtering the wort as it went to the chiller and only left about <1/2g in the kettle.

I use the regular Bazooka, not the T, in my kettle and I think it's one of the greatest products ever. Except when I forget to install it until the pot is nearly full of hot wort. (IMG:style_emoticons/brewboard/blush.gif)

I have had that happen to me more often than not. I have had it for 6 months and only been able to use it 3 out of about 20 brews. I always remember way too late. I also had an issue with not getting the clamp tight enough once and it fell off during the boil!

Love my Bazooka T, use it in my keggle and haven't had a back up yet, although I tend to only use whole hops. My keggle is fully drained with only the hops left in when all is said and done! Great product, definitely worth the price (thinking of getting one for my mashtun).

I use in my coverted keggle and love it. Have used with whole and pellet hops. Never had a clog and only have about a quart of wort remaining in the pot.

I studied the pics of it on the homepage, then decided to make my own.
I used a SS washer hose, & a few copper fittings. Works better than the original, as far as I'm concerned.

I use mine in my brewpot so I can't comment on how it works in a mashtun. I love it in my brewpot. Does it's job everytime. Mine is offset because I use my pump to swirl the wort and let the hops mound in the center.

Just so you know BS, it works great in a mash tun!! I had my keggle loaded with about 40 or so lbs and it took about 2 qta to get the wort clear and the runoff went very well!

Thought I'd bring this up again. I want to use 1/2 inch braided hose in my brew kettle. I use pellet hops and hop bags. Will the cold break clog the hose? And what is the largest tubing I can fit it over, 1/4 or 3/8?

Don't know about the fitting, but I don't think the break will clog it, but it will most likely flow slow.

i have the normal bazooka, the straight one. Works great, doesnt leave much dead space in the mash tun if you press fit it. Clear runnings in ~2qts. easy to clean and take off/put on the bulk head. i give it a 10 cause you cant go wrong with one.

I bought the whole sankey adapter with the T, and I haven't boiled at all, but just from filling it up with water, it seems that I have about half a gallon of water that can't drain out. If this normal? Does anyone have any ideas how to fix this? Thanks!
