Damn! That had me intrigued. A bit small though.

Should fit an ounce or two of hops, could also use them for spices, orange peels whatever in the boil.

Can attach a longer steel line for retrieving them after.

I might pick a few of these up
I use those for dry hopping. They work splendidly.

Do you use whole or pellets?

As an approximation, pretend that the tea ball is a cylinder. The volume is 3.25 x pi x 4.25 = 46.75 cu. in.

This one http://www.amazon.com/Twist-Lock-Spice-Infuser-Stainless-Steel/dp/B0047Z2FKW/ref=pd_sim_k_5 would be 5.5 x pi x 5.5 = 95.0 cu. in., or twice the volume - would hold a lot more hops.

Apologies for bringing a dead thread back to life, but I just discovered it while researching hop spiders. I think this jumbo tea ball would be pretty useful.
