    After many conversations with my Irish wife, and as much wisdom as I could gather, I made my

    McCoy,Hey, well said. After changing my brew process a bit, and experimenting with a few brews
    in both my Hop Spider and free-floating, I have found that a not-too-tightly packed hop spider
    does get a...

    Another possibility (not tested, obviously) is that the hop spider allows the hops just enough

    ChillWill - Yes I am indeed in Roc. Weather has certainly been a bit crazy here this winter,

    forum and ...

    Yep. I paid 15.89 for a roll of reflectix plus 8% sales tax :confused: minus 10% military
    discount :D , so I basically still paid 15.89, and I still have about 20 feet left over. I used
    foil duct tape...

    I have been doing all-electric BIAB for a couple of months, with decent results. My hop
    utilization seemed to be suffering and my boils were weak. The two seem to be related :drunk:,
