Default Hopbag Hanger

I'm new to brewing and have gotten lots of good info from this forum so its time I contribute something. Here is another variation of a hopbag hanger. Hopefully I'm not duplicating something that someone has done already. I've read some of the other posts where galvanized metal was used so thought I'd go with aluminum instead. I got all of this stuff at Lowes.

4" aluminum duct connector
4" worm clamp
coat hook
1 gal paint strainer bag
2 small bolts,nuts and washers

Dude, your pot is way to clean. The inside should be black to have an oxidized layer. What are you cleaning with?

Great hop bag setup. I think I will convert mine to hang the same

Awesome! Thanks I like your build. I was unsure of using pvc and galvenized so had just been clipping to the side, this I will build.

adrock18t, I've only done 4 brews and clean my kettle immediately after I've put it in the primary. I use perfume free dish soap and soak it for 15 minutes and scrub lightly.

I use three aluminum kettles and all are charcoal colored on the inside which is the oxidized layer. This layer protects your product from the adverse affects of aluminum pot (off flavors and arguably amounts off Alzheimers inducing chemical compounds). Have you boiled just water in your kettle for and hour.

My aluminum kettle is also black. I just rinse with water, scrub with a sponge right after brewing. I have had it for about 8 years now tho.

I just rinse with water and knock of the crusties with a brush, no soap. The boil will kill any nasties, I see no reason for soap.

I think the hop spider is made so the whloe contraption can't fall into the pot. What do you think the risk is of yours being knocked into the kettle? I like the looks of it.

Also, I think I have broken the rules when I uploaded pics in the past. It is ALWAYS important to add your glass of home brew to your pictures. Iam going to do that from now on!
