With this attachment complete with a 1.5 meter long springer filter, you can filter the post-boiling must, leaving clots, proteins and hops inside your Grainfather. Tee and spinger filter in Aisi316L stainless steel, electropolished and immersion passivated for suitability for contact with foodstuffs as specified by MOCA
The springer filter due to its shape offers an obstacle to the passage of the coarse parts which rest on its surface. This results in an obvious slowing down of the flow but as can be seen from the product photos the result in the fermenter is staggering with a total absence of background.
The kit consists of
1- aisi 316 stainless steel tee with two a2 stainless steel locking screws
1- springer filter length 1.5 mt
1- FDA food grade silicone ring for thrust locking of the tee
--NEW-- Double bottom model for Grainfather
Grainfather external filter complete with spare parts
Not at all working
Unfortunately not at all working with my Grainfather. The Pump is not strong enough. I'm rather disappointed, even with clear water almost no flow. Am I doing something wrong?
If even with clear water you have no flow you have other problems. Remember that the non-return valve must be disassembled and the spring and the ball removed which are of no use except to create problems
Filtro ottimo come sempre
Utilizzo lo springer da quando Bac lo ha realizzato. Anche la versione per GF lavora alla grande. Onestamente io pesto con cereali e problemi di flusso di ricircolo e stuck non è mai avuti. Adesso prenderò il dobbiamo fondo per il cestello GF. Così avrò il mosto il più pulito possibile.
I use the spring filter on my Grainfather G30. Much better than the original. Beer stays clear. Insalling is very easy.
Grainfather's pump not powerful enough!
The idea and the craftsmanship behind this Springer Kit is great. However, after brewing with it over 20 times, I figured that the pump of the grainfather just isn't strong enough to deliver a decent flow rate while mashing. I tried literally everything to find a work around: using the Springer kit in combination with and without the false bottom. As well as cutting it to a smaller size for having it lay around the boiler wall very loosely. I also tried to adjust the water:grain ratio, etc. - nothing really seemed to increase the flow rate during a mash. It works pretty decent after the boil for filtering the trub out of the liquid, but it's kinda useless if the pump cannot handle it while mashing the grain. Until Grainfather hasn't improved its pump, I wouldn't bother to upgrade it with any other filter or Springer Kit. I'm juse using the false bottom without any filter/ Springer now. And this seems to do the trick.
Thanks for feedback. As per the product description, the flow is halved, it is normal. Any filter must pose an obstacle otherwise it wouldn't be a filter. From tests carried out, the pouring time is doubled. It is also true that the GF pump has no strength as it is limited to a head of only 1.5m
