Keepin' it clean!

The fine mesh does a pretty good job of keeping the hops and other additions out of your final product. The sides feel like they are going to crush in when cleaning but so far no problems.

A little short of perfect.

You must have your wort chiller in the 10 gallon pot before dropping this into place or you could have a big mess on your hands. Very difficult to clean thoroughly without a very deep sink or very high faucet. As far as doing the job it was designed for it does it very well.

Hop Spider w/ Grainfather

I purchased the hop spider for use with my new Grainfather. With the recirculating pump I run it through the hop spider to keep the hops circulating. It is nice not having such a mess in the bottom after the boil!

Worth it's Weight in Gold!

Way easier to clean and more sanitary than hop bags. It allows for much more room to let your hops bloom than a tea ball. After a half dozen batches, I don't know how I managed the last 25 years of brewing without it!


Works for exactly what it's supposed to work for. I brewed a DIPA with a ton of hops recently and it saved a ton of hop material from getting into the fermenter. Of course there's still some stuff that gets through, but it kept the vast majority of material out. Would definitely recommend.
