So I recently purchased a set of Boilermaker kettles. One of the options is a Boil Kettle Strainer, shown here, And before I spend the 40 bucks, does anyone have any opinions about this thing?

Thanks for the help.

I don't have that kettle but just in theory, it's a good design. It doesn't have a ton of screen surface area but it's meant to be used after a clockwise whirlpool so the debris wouldn't be near it anyway. I'd say it's worth $40.

I heard it's good for whole hops, not so much with pellet.

I have one and I think it's worth it. But it can get clogged pretty easily using hop pellets directly in the boil. I use a hop bag for pellets.
