I watched the video of the Hop Rocket being used. The way it is built with the round top makes it a juggling act to get it loaded and assembled for use. There should be legs on it or a base included for loading. Seems obvious to me.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FEO75CszMcI
Yeah, I see what your talking about in the video. But that looks like a minor flaw. I could build a simple wood frame for it to sit on when loading and clamping down the lid.
I don't think I'd use it as a randal. I'm not a fan of that randal hop taste. I'm more interested in it as a way to filter trub with leaf hops and / or rice hulls.
