So I had an idea that I sketched up with Chad and he's already working on a prototype for me to test out for the filter resting on the bottom of the kettle without scorching.... Stay tuned ; )

Marc, when all is set and done, did you end up preferring the 300 or 400 micron boil kettle filter?

Hi, I ended up preferring the 300. For me it was fundamentally about keeping the gunk out of my chillers and the 300 balances that with decent flow and easy cleanup.

Subscribed. I've been thinking of contacting Johnson filters for something like this. Cmon payday!

Order placed. Super stoked to give it a try and ditch the nylon hop bags!

Mine arrived on the porch this afternoon, was in the keg with three ounces of hops in an IPA that was waiting for it 30 minutes later.

I'd post pics, but that's already been covered. It looks just as solid and well made as the hop blocker and the welded-in disc is a nice touch.

I'll know in a few weeks how much three ounces of keg hops fills this thing it up. Seems a lot roomier than the tea balls I've tried before

Edit: I also recently got a new BK and the hop blocker juuuust fits in it. It's definitely contacting the bottom. I didn't get any scorching with the first batch in it. Aluminum, if that makes any difference.

As one of the beta testers, I can say that the dry hopper is a brilliant piece of equipment! It's great in my carboys and dry hopping a US Brown currently (1.75 oz/5 gallon). Prior to using it, I placed in my preferred fermenter, an 8 gallon BrewCraft bucket- the top sits beautifully above the 6 gal mark and I'm certain it will work perfect there too!
