Jaybird™ Wide Mouth Canning Jar
Hop Filter Kit – NPT Male Attachments
with 64 Ounce Canning Jar and Band
304 Stainless Steel
An inexpensive and efficient 304 stainless steel hop filter kit provides “hop back” filtration of leaf and pellet hops.
This kit takes our Wide Mouth Canning Jar Hop Filter with 1/2" NPT Male Posts (SKU #3054) and adds a 64 ounce glass canning jar and band - giving you a complete solution for filtering whole leaf and pellet hops!
Clear glass allows unobstructed view of the action going on!
Simply pack the jar with leaf or pellet hops (or a combination of both), thread on 1/2" NPT Female connections of your choice, and you’re in business!
TO USE WITH PELLET HOPS you need to pack the top portion of the canning jar with up to 3 stainless steel scrubbies (SKU# 0352 – NOT INLCUDED). You can add scrubbies using the pull-down menu, above.
2 external 1/2" NPT Male posts accept a huge assortment of standard 1/2" NPT Female couplings, opening up a whole world of inter-connectivity including cam lock and quick disconnect components.
· Shorter NPT Male post on top of the lid is “liquid in” side. Feeds liquid to the bottom of the canning jar through the long dip tube
· Slightly taller NPT Male post on top of the lid is “liquid out” side.
HOW IT WORKS:
Beer or wort gets fed into the hop filter through the shorter NPT Male post, travels down the long dip tube to the bottom of the glass jar.
Pressure pushes the beer or wort through the hops, filtering the liquid and picking up hop flavor, color, and aroma.
Perforated disk keeps hops from pushing into glass jar’s neck.
Liquid exits through the diagonal-cut short dip tube near the top of the filter and continues out of the jar through the slightly taller NPT Male post.
