After looking closer at the cost, I understand going with ebay, they both do the same thing, I just liked the look of the one from SSB, but no so much after looking at the correct price.

The Ebay link says: It is made with 400 micron stainless steel wire mesh

I assume that is a good mesh thickness?

I'd email the seller, if he hasn't made it yet then he should be willing to put whatever micron you want in there.... I went with 200 but I think 300 or 400 would work better. I would probably opt for 300 if you have a choice.

Perhaps, however, level of bitterness, sharpness and hop aroma/flavor are all perceived on the pallet. For a test batch I ran through a recipe I am very familiar with and noted significantly more bitterness than I had experienced before by using bags when tasting the wort during the boil. So for non-lab quantification I was very satisfied with my hop utilization. This is with the only variant in the recipe being the usage of this screen filter as opposed to hop bags.

I messaged the ebay seller to see if they would do customized versions.

your 200 micron is about #70 mesh, correct? it seems like there was too much separation between your hops and wort. whats the largest size you could go for pellet hops?

i was thinking about buying #60 mesh, but that's 250 microns so i'm re-thinking before i buy anything.

BTW - 400 microns would be #40 mesh.

I have no idea what mesh = 300 micron but that is where I'm headed next.... There was definitely too much separation but the hop bitterness and flavor were there in the final wort so I'm conflicted.
