Clip-On Trub Guard
Clip-On Trub Guard

Our Price: $10.00

Quantity in Stock:1

Product Code: TRUBGUARD

Keep most of that trub out of your drain without a filter device.

This is a slight reconfiguration of our heat shield assembly that allows clipping to the side of a kettle dip tube to keep your pile of trub away from the exit point. This is especially useful when you whirlpool your boiled wort to make a neat pile in the center of the pot. That pile usually stays put until it becomes exposed to air and then it collapses and falls towards the sidewalls of your pot. This simple clip on guard will stay in place during the whole boil and keep most of the trub out of the pickup at the end of the draining process.

We position the clip for best fit on our truebulkheadelbarb but it will also work with a street elbow threaded into a welded coupling bulkhead that acts as a mini diptube.

The 3" high x 5" wide stainless plate should be touching the bottom of the pot for best results. The plate and clip are 304 stainless steel.

5 of 5 Simple and effective November 26, 2023
Reviewer: Steve Sibelman from Portland, OR  
I wish I could post a picture of the fine result this handy widget achieves.  Together with whirlpooling, it really helps keep trub away from the kettle outlet.

4 of 5 Substantial help keeping trub in kettle April 17, 2023
Reviewer: Steve Sibelman from Beaverton, OR United States  
No trub guard can be 100% effective, but this one clips nicely to the "shorty" pickup tube in my Spike kettle and retains considerable trub that would otherwise go into the fermenter.  Easy to use, and reasonably priced.

3 of 5 Useful August 10, 2021
Reviewer: Odin Anderson from Bellevue, WA United States  
I have an inverted keggle, so I knew I'd have to grind the bottom edge to a curve. That was no problem.

It was a good component to start with but the little tack weld on the clip is a bit sketchy. I would have liked something with a much more adjustable clip.  And since there was no picture of the clip, I didn't know before I purchased it.

Maybe an adjustable screw to change the distance between the pickup tune and the guard.

5 of 5 Not sure the clip would work, but it does. September 27, 2019
Reviewer: Dave from Bend, OR United States  
Wasn't sure how the clip would work specificaly on my Spike kettle with the 5/8" side pickup tube.  There's no photo of the clip side to show exactly how the clip works. Well, the clip fits nicely on my pickup tube. Snaps right on. After whirlpooling (I hand stir) the guard works as designed to allow you to get (almost) the last sips of wort as the turb mound starts its collapse and spread.
