call a French Beer Press. lol

Yeah materials wise not hard at all. In fact could cut the top off a corny and make a stainless steel screen for pressing. All stainless press to make it easy to clean.

Use 5 lbs. pellet hops, don't secondary or filter--- go straight to the keg or bottle and then have fun picking the hop crap out of your teeth. Oh and get ready to puke, cause it's coming !

This is a gag I know but "come on man". LOL !!

Did you ever try this? I'm curious if it was drinkable. I figure there's a maximum absorption rate that would make it so this could be tolerable.

My guess is that once he saw how much it would cost just to ruin 5 gallons he probably chose not to.

Go for the keg. Instead of a pint glass, serve it in a soup bowl and call it Hopspacho.
