This stainless strainer  (also known as a hop spider) is perfect for containing hops in a boil in either a Keggle, Mash & Boil, or Grainfather. Made entirely of 304 grade stainless, this 300 micron grade screen will hold in either pellet or whole hops. It can accomodate up to 9 ounces of pellet hops, or 4 ounces of whole hops.  It is 17½" overall length with handle, with the basket being 14" long, and 4" wide at the base, and 6" wide at the top.

Hop Spider
I've used it twice since purchase; yes I had to reengineer the handle a bit to keep the top of the spider above the level of the wart, but other than that I love it. For the most part all of the hop fines stay in the spider and I recirculate the wart into the spider so the hop wonderfulness is distributed throughout.

hop spider
I like this product hangs on the side of your brew kettle (also my new robobrew) you can drop fine mesh bags of pellet hops in it and that keeps a lot of the hop trub out of your wort,much cleaner going into the fermentor

Hop Spider
If there was a way to cover the top of this spider, it would be more useful. But, as it is, when the boiling wort is near the top of the spider the hops fall out. I suppose if it were taller, that might work better. Maybe it works better in the grainfather, but in a converted keg, it's limited in usefulness.

Used it with my new Robobrew and it worked great. Great hop aroma/taste transferred through and the hop debris stayed in the spider!

First use caught most trub
First use caught most trub a little bit leaked over the side of the grandfather. What was nice was that with the handle I could sparge a little bit of the sugars out and still have a nice ball of hops to throw away. Seems to work well. Final taste of brew will determine IBU efficiency and if I need to adjust. I added about 10% more hops to compensate for the mesh. Cheers!

Can this be used in a Robobrew (with pump)?
Yes, for the boil when you remove the grain pipe, this fits well.

how hard is it to bend the handle like it is shown in the picture with the keggle?
Not real hard, the handle is thin stainless and can be bent with a little effort.

Does this product have an open bottom?
No, the same mesh screen is on the bottom as on the sides.
