Works great for adding more hops
Love my Big Mouth Bubbler with Depth Charge-a must have for good I.P.A.'s
Depth charge works as advertised. I did a 3 oz dry hop and after using the included tool to push it down into the beer after an hour or so, they stayed in solution for the 5 days of dry hopping.
The part that attaches to the lid is sturdy, but stitching on the basket needs to be handled and washed carefully as it’s a little flimsy and very sharp.
It can also be used as a hop filter in the boil and depending on your kettle size (doesn’t really work on my 15 gallon kettle unless I clip it to the top).
Works as advertised. I didn't have an issues with sharp edges like others have said. My only advice would be if you plan to do any smaller batches to use the 5 gallon BMB because the charge will reach lower. I use this to filter my wort as I'm transferring from the kettle to the primary, too. Does great. Also has the added benefit of aerating the wort while transferring. Nice device. I'll probably be using this setup for a long time.
I purchased one of these with my latest order to pair with the 6.5 gallon glass evo2 Big Mouth. The lid opening on the glass Big Mouth was slightly out of round by about 1/8" and would not allow the universal lid of the Depth Charge to fit. I had to have the glass 6.5 unit replaced with a plastic 6.5 unit in order to get the batch finished off with the depth charge as planned. The batch is still going but the Depth Charge seems to be working as advertised in the plastic 6.5. Overall, it's a great product idea but I'd like to see it paired with the grey screw on type lid to avoid the fitment issues and potential lid security issues that go with the universal type lids.
