Just ordered one after a less than enjoyable attempt at dryhopping my latest ipa.

OK, I got mine in last night and played with it. It'll fit up to 3oz of pellets, but that is 99.9% full. I only managed to get about 1oz of leaf hops in there. I'm sure you could fit more in, but you'd be compacting them in pretty tight.

Overall, I'm definitely satisfied with the purchase. My only* wish for change would be for a loop on one of the stoppers to attach a ziptie or string to for retrieval. The craftsmanship is really good as well.

10 liters... that's like 2.5 gallons, i believe. if your carboy is anything like my 3 gallon carboy, i fear that the dry hopper might be too long. it won't fit inside (completely), so you'll have no way to close up the carboy.

It's 2.8ish gallons. It's actually a Pyrex lab carboy with a screw on cap that seals. I drilled a hole in the cap for a grommet, similar to a buckets grommet.

It fits nicely once I sliced about half an inch off one of the rubber stoppers.

So, it'll work! Well worth the money spent, for sure.

Just bought four of these, and two of the corney dry hoppers. Can't wait til I can use them, but the construction is top notch. These corney dry hoppers seem like a much more refined design then the comp. Thumbs up for Chad and his great products.

Just ordered two. An awesome idea and I'd been looking around for something similar but a Google search didn't pop these up. Glad I found them finally!
