Yeah, I'll keep you all posted. Before I ordered this I did a test with my hop basket and it seemed to work fine, infact I think a smaller basket could work well for steeping grains in extract brews.
I had this basket made so it's only 1/2" diameter less than the OD of my kettle so just about all the kettle water should be inside the basket with the grains.
I don't know yet how fine I should crush the grains, I can see where a too fine crush could lead to clogging up the mesh but then most say a fine crush is a good idea for higher efficiency. I'll have to find a good compromise and If I have to go a little more coarse and lose a few points thats fine, I'll add a little more grain, it won't have to be much with 2.5gl batches.
