I bought two of those. I use one in my MLT, and had one in my kettle (I'm replacing the false bottom with something else). It works great for whole hops, but it won't stop pellet hop particles. I tried to modify it by sewing on some nylon mesh, but the results weren't good to say the least (http://www.homebrewtalk.com/showthre...796#post223796
There are other ways to stop the hops. Read that thread from the beginning and do a search on hopstopper and bazooka t to get some ideas.
