You asked and we responded! This cool insert allows higher flow rates through your HopRocketT and improves plug resistance.
The HopRocketT is an incredibly innovative, feature packed hop infusing tool! Not only can it be used as a hopback, it doubles as an in-line hop infuser (Randalizer) for your beer dispensing system and TRIPLES as an in-line filter*! Definitely cool, and clearly Blichmann - let the HopRocketT put your hop aroma into orbit!!
Unlike competitive units made from simple kitchen-ware fitted with a basic false bottom, the HopRocket has been designed from the ground up as a purpose-built, heavy duty, hopback and hop infuser. This clean sheet approach means truly superior performance and features:
.Pressure tight - up to 40 PSI operation!
.Holds up to 3oz of whole hops as a hopback and 4oz as an infuser - 2X the competition!
.100% stainless construction & silicone seals
.No need to monitor wort level - will never overflow and spill like competitive units!
.Fully enclosed system from brew pot to fermentor means no volitile hop aromas are lost!
.Inlet at the bottom allows air to automatically purge to reduce hot-side aeration
.Fine filter with wiper seal sends very clear wort to your fermentor.
.Coarse filter and cone bottom inlet prevents wort channeling and backup for even hop utilization
.Works on gravity systems and with pumps (about 4ft (1M) of static head is recommended for best gravity performance)
.Doubles as an awesome hop infuser (Randalizer) for your dispensing system
.1/2" NPT connections are easy to adapt to - a perfect match for our popular QuickConnector fittings (1/2", 3/8" barb and 1/4" flare)
* The HopRocketT can be utilized as a general strainer/filter but it is NOT intended to filter all the sediment and particles of your brew pot while using at a hopback. The large quantities of pellet hops, trub and other debris will plug and compact the hop bed stopping flow. The installation of a prefilter in your pot is recommended to prevent excessive quantities of material from entering the hopback. As such, recirculation whirlpool immersion chilling systems should not be utilized with the HopRocketT.
