Details
Recirculating wort back into the kettle to whirlpool the wort makes for much faster cooling and will also make a concentrated pile of trub and hop particles in the center of the kettle bottom. This whirlpool port assembly installs high up on your kettle wall above the typical wort level and then extends down before curving to the side to force the recirculated liquid towards the sidewall.

The BrewHardware purpose-built unit called the Spin Cycle starts with a weldless bulkhead design with captured O-ring and extended male threads and has the 1/2" drop tube fully welded in. The result is a compact way to whirlpool without the need to put a ball valve on the port (the port is meant to be installed well above the max liquid level). It includes the base unit with the welded drop tube, the captured high temp silicone oring, a thin SS washer and a 1/2" NPS locknut to hold it all together.

Does not work in converted kegs.

Install Notes:
Drill a clean 13/16" diameter hole in the upper sidewall of the pot, above the max liquid level line you plan to use. It is also important to remove any sharp edges or "burrs" from the inside edge of the hole, otherwise the oring can get torn. Pro Tip: If you are using a step bit to make this hole, drill most of the steps from the outside of the pot all the way up to the 3/4" size. Then drill to 13/16 from the inside of the pot to remove the sharp burr. If you have a sharp edge on the outside of the pot, it will NOT affect the interior oring seal at all. It will get covered with the SS washer anyway.

Insert the threaded portion of the unit through the hole from the inside of your pot or keg with only the oring in place. On the outside, install the metal washer and locknut and snug everything up with a wrench. You can simply hold the drop tube with one hand to keep it vertical while tightening the exterior locknut.
Note: Due to how close this assembly sits to the sidewall of the pot, be aware of any interior features that would obstruct the unit. One example is the Bayou Classic pots that have the interior rim that supports a basket. You can use the Spin Cycle in these pots but the install has to be done below the ledge rather than above it.
