I used one a few times and then gave it away. I wasn't impressed. It didn't seem to do anything that couldn't be done better by dry hopping.

I have heard that from a few brewers as well. I was considering giving it a shot though just because it's one more piece of equipment to tinker with.

I don't remember who I stole this idea from but it is awesome. I used to use a 4"PVC coupling as a how spider but after a while it was warping because of the heat.

This method is all SS and is really cheap and easy.

Use the 6" egg ring with a large worm gear clamp and any type of bag you like. bend the handle into a hook and it hangs nicely on the edge of my Keggle.

I throw them in but use a hop bag to dry hop...a few weeks in a fridge really clears up the clarity but I tend to not see those problems
