Kettle Pick-Up and Tap Extension (ULCBP)

Brew Day was an excellent test run for the ULCBP hardware.  One problem that was identified was the fact that the high position of the tap (necessitated by the curved bottom of the kettle) leaves a large amount of wort behind.  Around 10L!

The solution is a low pick-up tube and a tap extension that extends to below the height of the pick-up.  That way we can achieve a syphon effect and negate the high position of the tap.

(pick-up tube angled to the side to avoid slurping whirlpooled sediment)

Having tested this new arrangement now the kettle only leaves 1.8L behind – much of which will be chock full of sediment anyway.
