Wringer for hop bag?
Those of you using hop bags, does anyone wring or squeegee their hop bags when removing them? I usually don a pair of thick rubber gloves and give it a stiff wring or two. Seems like it would be a waste to leave all that hop juice in there. But wringing with gloves is messy an uncomfortable, and could be dangerous.
What do you think of something like this:

Obviously it couldn't be made of the same materials. Wouldn't it be cool to have a stainless steel wringer like that on top of a brew kettle?
I usually cool off my batch a bit first, then I put the hop bag in a strainer (at around 170 deg) to drain for a few minutes over the keggle while I continue to run my immersion cooler. I end up giving the bag a good squeeze with bare hands (clean mind you). Sometimes a bit hot but I've had a few brews at this point in the process which helps :)
