Stainless Steel Mesh Trub Buster - 1100
 
Alternative Views:


Home brewers are always looking for the most effective way to reduce hop material from their wort. Many brewers prefer to leave hop particles (trub) left behind in the boil kettle to help make a crystal clear beer that even a mainstream beer drinker will appreciate.

Most pancake style devices are hand crafted after obtaining material and sewing with stainless steel wire or folding the mesh. They can be prone to repairs for holes and frayed ends. Fabricating challenged people have been to known spend days attempting to make a trub filter with considerable expense, just to toss the project away after mixed results.

Ontariobeerkegs is proud to present our version of the popular pancake style hop stopper. The 1100 models needs a pot with a diameter at least 15 1/4".

A dip tube (not included) will need to be made to attach to your kettle with a compression fitting. Copper tubing is pliable by hand and available at any hardware store.

Important, only open valve 1/4 way November 18, 2016
Reviewer: Ryan Chabot from Zenon Park, SK Canada  
Was looking for this a while back. Before OBK had it stocked. Or maybe I never found it as I was searching for a hop stopper, not "Trub Buster". Initially settled for a Stainless Steel False Bottom Assembly to clean up my brew. It pails in comparison to this. Only open the valve a 1/4 way in the beginning. I drained 13gallons through with over 8oz of hops. Used in conjunction with Whirlfloc tablets my brew is crystal clear.

This thing works great! February 9, 2016
Reviewer: Mike from Hamilton, ON Canada  
Do not recirculate or  whirlpooling  through it . Biggest thing is to not pump out at a high rate I only opened the pump ball vale 1\4 way. I also put it in with the point side down not up. I'm not sure if this is right but it lets wort through from all around it not just the top if it's siting on the bottom of the pot flat. Worked great for me drained everything out no problem and no more clogged plate chiller!

Poor Performance January 28, 2016
Reviewer: John from London Ontario  
Haven't had any luck with this product. Even with very little hops this thing gets clogged almost immediately every time. I think I'm giving up on it next brew. Would not recommend.

Trub Buster 1100 January 11, 2016
Reviewer: John from Saskatchewan  
Purchased this a while ago and the build quality is very good. I have used this for 3 brews now, I brew 20 gallon batches and none of them had an excessive amount of hops (I use pellet). Each brew I had to continually scrape the screen with a stainless paddle to keep the wort flowing, not sure if the screen is too fine or not but it is more of a pain than anything and I will not be using it again.
