That's the same price rebel has it for. I'm considering getting one but am not 100% sure how much I'd use it. I guess if I don't like it I could sell it on eBay. Either way a new toy is always fun

I am really interested in his hopback as well, but I would need to change my process and equipment a bit as I currently use an IC and I really don't see the benefit of sending chilled wort through the hopback to the fermenter. OTOH I am considering moving to a plate or counterflow chiller as my whirlpooled IC still takes about 20-40 minutes to get to pitching temps depending on how cool my groundwater is.

Just bought one from RebelBrewer. Not sure if I'll get to brew with it this season (I'm in Chicago), but I'm hoping we'll get a nice (warmish) day in the next few weeks. I got some vacation time, so I plan to take a day off to give it a try.

Got a load of Willamette hops in the freezer and am *really* excited about giving this a try.

Where does this hopback go in terms of the flow of the wort to the fermenter?

I'm assuming you're pumping hot wort into the side hopback-in, forcing it through the top hopback-out, and then sending it into your plate chiller -- and then into your fermenter?

Just got it in the mail today. Smaller than I thought -- but very well put together. Will be brewing on Saturday with it, and I'll post pictures.

Nice, solid. I'm looking forward to it.
