3.7 / 5.077 Reviewsgreat idea that missedWorked great on my first use, but my second use it failed to stay sealed and released everything into the boil. Got it to lower my sediment in my fermentation buckets so I have to give this a low rating. The problem is the clamp to hold it together is opposite the hinge and a gap is created in between those to points.October 29, 2018Purchased

1 year agoOnly for small amount of hops!Tried to do 1 oz. finishing hops (pellets) from my kit and was surprised to see how tightly packed the ball was upon completion of 15 minutes of boil time... next time will use a nylon bag. Might work okay for smaller quantity of hops but 1 oz. was definitely too muchDecember 11, 2017Purchased

I used another one to add whole coffie beans to my keg for added coffie flavor.April 7, 2017Purchased
over 2 years agojunkthese would be great if they were made better...
there is a HUGE gap between the two halves and the hops flow through even when properly closed with the clip...
better off using a small nylon hop bagMarch 10, 2017I really like the hop ball. With the simply beer recipes I started with you can extra hops to them to add flavor.January 11, 2017Purchased

over 3 years agoNice idea, but a little too small.The hop balls should be about an inch larger in diameter. They're listed as 3", but the internal diameter of the sphere is more like 2.25 inches. With insufficient internal space, the pellets stack solid when added to the wort and swell. I'm uncertain I'm getting full utilization in the boil or during dry-hopping.November 24, 2016Purchased
over 2 years agotoo small for 1 oz of hopsOK for small amounts of Hops in a dry hop but no good for a boil as the hops expands and doesn't allow for maximum attenuation.January 10, 2016need more or biggerBought two but needed four, or just bigger. They worked like it claimed but they are not heavy enough to fall to the bottom for dry hopping. So we will try again.January 9, 2016
