Works fine for whole hops, but not nearly as well with pellet hops, IME...

Yes / No?? I just throw mine in and whirlpool like others said. So I don't know if these will work or not. if they would, you could have your hops all setup in a ball, then toss in boil at 60, 10, 5 ..ect.. cheap 2!

A 1" diameter makes them pretty much useless for most of us. A single ounce of pellet hops would probably fill it, with them dry. Once they go into the boil, they expand several times over.

There are some larger ones (4" diameter) on Amazon. I would still be reluctant to use that since it can easily get filled with the expanded hop matter. Either get the standard nylon 'hop bag', using one per addition, secured to the side of the kettle (the handle is typically where you tie it off to) or make/get a hop spider.

I'm looking at getting one of the models made by Stainless Brewing so that my hops have more room to roam, and have easier cleanup. More for the cleanup ease than anything, since I can connect a LARGE nylon bag to my spider top.

So when you have say three hop additions do you use three bags ordo you try and fish it out of boiling wort, untie and add hops each time?

The bags work great if you don't mind using several of them for one batch of beer.
Sort of a waste to me though.

I wouldn't want to try and untie a knot in a wort saturated, boiling hot, bag...

IF you don't tie them off someplace, and have an actual kettle, they will sink and can plug up the dip tube/inside opening. IMO, more hassle than it's worth at that point.

I use a bag that cotton bag that i clamp to the side of my kettle with a spring clamp. When I have a hop addition I unclamp it and toss the hops in. Works great.

I use 1 muslin bag for each hop addition.....fish them out at end of boil with SS spoon and let drain juices back in pot....then toss them out

Muslin bags are $0.35 each at my LHBS......so cost doesn't bother me....especially for the ease it provides...

Went to a hop spider myself because of how terrible the muslin bags were. It is extremely hard to get the same hop character on recipes that use a lot of hops.

Ever since I switched, I have been getting pretty much the exact same hop characteristics as when I was not using a bag at all.
