I’ve been trying to whirlpool in my keggle after cooling but just can’t seem to get the nice hop mound some people get. Is it because it’s a domed bottom keggle, not a flat bottomed kettle. I first tried doing a manual whirlpool with poor results. I have now bought a pump and added a whirlpool inlet and fitting from bargain fittings. Last brew day I ran the whirlpool for 40 minutes with the immersion chiller in first, then pulled the IC and let it run for 20 minutes, then let it sit for 20 minutes. In the end, it looked like the hops were pretty even on the bottom. I did a 10 gallon pale ale with 5oz of pellet hops. I ran my march pump wide open for the entire time.
Any help would be appreciated!
