    I use a helix filter, if ' No Chilling' 1 length will do as the wort cools the viscosity rises so a bigger area is needed, so I increased the helix length. I bought them for $3.00 USD each from China. Any budding entrepreneurs could bring them in and make a tidy profit, minimum order 100.

    The vertical was a safety guard in case it didn't work but it works fine.

    I've tried using a standard length helix filter in my old biab pot a few times with zero success - it clogged instantly and was a bugger to get clean inside.
    Your's looks like its in a different league though, but have you got it attached to the tap on the side? How are you pumping out?

    Gave up with the pump, put a reducer in the tap and just use that, standard length of helix will not work on cooled wort, the cooler the wort the higher the viscosity, 24 C I tried that worked but was slow, the last one was 27 C and emptied in 20 mins I am going to empty at 30 C next time.
