Those strainers are nice and cheap too! Wish I had a use for one. I never strain anything when brewing other than through a false bottom. Never saw the need.

Be careful, if you are going to use them as a hop strainer I bet they are not rated for use at 212* F.

Well, I hope nobody is pouring 212°F wort anywhere, for any reason. (Sounds like an accident waiting to happen.)

I think these would work great for straining your cooled wort as you pour it into a bucket for primary fermentation. If you are into that sort of thing.

I whirlpool the hot wort before it reaches the CFC and I have not had a problem yet. This would be a great way to filter the wort as it goes into the bucket instead of having to hold onto a small metal strainer. I might give one of these a try.

thats exactley what i use them for, to pour the cooled wort in to the
fermentation bucket. they do a great job straining out the hop sludge and cold break or if you want you can siphon the cooled wort into the strainer on your bucket to strain out any material that might get sucked up by the siphon

Lots of guys use bags for hops in their boiling wort as shown below. Paint Strainer Bags made of Nylon are safe in a boil but my point is that if anyone considered using the HDPE Bags mentioned by the OP they are not safe at Boiling Temperatures.

Look into whirlpooling. I tried it the first time this weekend and I got nice clear wort.
