I brew in an ale pale. I have a funnel I'd like to start using to help start aeration. I'm about to switch over to whole hops too. I'd like to filter them out to reduce the amount of wort I lose by the end of my boil. I'm the proud owner of this funnel: http://labelpeelers.com/antisplash-funnel-with-fine-filtering-screen-p-2552.html except mine has a tab on the outside so I can hang it from the lip of my ale pale. My method is that I have tried to pour the wort directly from my kettle through the funnel. There was too much push and the weight of the wort pulled the funnel off the lip of the fermenter and into the bottom of the pale. I cussed a lot and pulled the funnel out. I'm wondering if there is a way to stabilize the funnel on top of an ale pale so I can pour the wort from the kettle through the funnel, through a screen, and into the fermenter. I'd rather not siphon and I don't have a ball valve on my kettle--yet. Any ideas, or am I going over to team siphon?
