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.

Works great
Bought this to replace hop bags.  It's a little tall for my kettle, but a clamp on the handle secures it.  Easier to throw hops and irish moss into this spider than to prepare and reopen hop bags.  But the real advantage is cleaning: the residue from hop pellets cleans right off with a scrubbing sponge, used gently.

Works great - not perfect for Grainfather
Plenty big enough for hop head favorites.  Fine mesh screen works great even with pellet hops.  Only drawback from my perspective, and why I didn't give 5 stars, is that I bought this specifically for use with a Grandfather as advertised on the site.  I found that the handle is too long to hook it on the edge of the Grandfather and still have the top of the hop spider above the normal wort level.  Hooking the handle on the edge means the hop spider is completely submerged which defeats the purpose of the spider.  What worked for me, and I recommend for Grandfather use, is to hook the handle on the recirculation pipe after you swing the pipe out over to the side.

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.
