Looks neat, and at 15 bucks definitely something to consider. Can you explain how to use it? Would I just let it fall into the carboy? How do you get it out? Any reason this couldn't be used in better bottles? Scratching?

You could use fishing line, tie it to the stopper, and lift out when your done.

Yes the potential for scratching.

Really neat concept. I'd use something like this for spicing beers.

If you put spherical bumpers of plastic onto the ends of the hopper to give it more of a barbell shape I'd imagine that could cut down on scratching around the edges. Or some plastic bands around the outside of it.

Well, I just ordered one. I only have a better bottle and buckets at the moment, but I'm looking to buy a few glass carboys for secondary in the near future. Once I get my hands on it I'll let you know my initial impressions.

I figure worst case I'll just have it for when the glass comes around.

Ohh, I really like your bucket filters. That 74 micron looks like it could be pretty awesome. When I do my BIAB, my wort is always filled with cloudy grain crap and lots of it. Is a 74 micron filter fine enough to filter all that out along with the hop junk?
