ha......
Seriously, has anyone here purchased the setup I'm looking at from Morebeer? 64 bucks seems kind of steep, but it's got everything I'd need and not have to mess around with piece mealing things together. Does that hop stopper work pretty good for the bottom of the Sanke keg? I wouldn't mind saving a buck or two. I know I can get the ball valve a lot cheaper but the other stuff...

Default Hop Stopper

Ol' Grog, Hop Stopper's work great worth every penny. In my opinion you can mess around making one, but I ordered mine from Innovative Homebrew Solutions and It's the BOMB it stops even the finest pellet hops absoulutely clear wort.

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.

Cheers.

Thanks. I think I'm going to go with a spigot and arm only. I use a hop bag or hop screen when boiling. Plus, it would seem a lot easier to clean up if using a hop bag.
