Works great - not perfect for Grainfather

Review by Greg on 12/8/2016

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.
