Default Hop Spider Holder

For those who use a hop spider, do you find it a pain to hold it over the BK as it drains? I use the fine mesh and it sucks to drain. I was walking around the restaurant supply store and found this fryer oil strainer holder. This looks like it has some potential. I will post my findings after my next brew.

Yes, I sure do find that a pain. I need to find something like what you have there. I'm guessing it will work great. Please post back when you have more info.

Thanks for posting pics.

yes it's a PITA. Looks like you could also use that thing to suspend the hop bag, too.

I used this for the first time yesterday. It worked really good. The hops sat in cone nicely and it allowed it drain.
