Stainless Steel Hop Filter

 

A stainless steel hop filter is the latest addition to my home brewing system setup. I am not sure about you but the trub, hops and sludge left at the bottom of the kettle can be frustrating on a few different levels. ¬†First off, it slows the rate at which I can transfer to the fermenter after my wort has been cooled and I am also always disappointed by how much wort gets trapped along with the mess. ¬†I am hoping that eliminating the majority of hop particulate will make a big difference with this. The reason I selected this one was mainly because of size, it measures at 14″ x 6″ and is fully stainless steel. I also like that even the bottom of the hop filter was mesh as I do not want to suffer when it comes to hop utilization and have diminished bitterness or aroma.

I am planning on brewing with it hopefully next weekend and I will let you know how it works out!
