most grocery stores sell "reusable" nylon produce bags... perfect for hops and still plenty of room to tie off or knot up.

lowes 5 gallon paint strainers are what i use on my spider.. hangs nicely into the boil even on 5 gallons with my keggle.. i also have a small piece of copper pipe in there to keep it weighted down, seems to work well


~ A fine beer may be judged with only one sip, but it's better to be thoroughly sure.
