Don't you guys worry about stuff leeching out of the pvc during the boil? I know they condensate like mad (I tried one once for about 5 minutes). I will admit their a neat option, I just prefer to let the hops swim free.

I don't worry about much at all, so no.

I too would prefer to just toss hops into the boil, but my plate chiller would quickly become useless.

That's what a hop stopper is for, my friend.

Nothing PVC in my boil. I use the Lil' Sparky paint strainer, hop spider type thingy except I use a Polyester 100 micron water filter bag which is rated to 280*F and add 10% more hops to compensate for loss of hop flavor and aroma. I have had only positive effects from anything leaching from the Polyester during the boil because that extra penis growing from my forehead has come in handy.

I just started reading this thread and got a couple of posts into it and read this "I'm no small guy and I gave my sack quite a few good tugs." and I had to stop there because my eyes were watering and couldn't see straight as I was laughing so hard.

I hope your sack is OK!

Still ROFL...

Checking how far my sack will hang into the pot. It's just above the bottom. If I stretch it out, it might touch bottom.
Was thinking the same thing about this one
