update: the hop strainer worked great! i did put in a couple inch length copper tubing in the bottom to keep it weighted down (i remember reading that somewhere and it worked out well).. overall, great to add more steel products and reuse items i may have thrown away anyways..

ok, lets be honest, i never throw anything like that away, i can always find uses for random stuff ;-)

I built one like this as well. The only issue is the small diameter of the drain. Good luck getting lots of whole leaf hops in there. At times, I have to use whole leaf and the small diameter makes this a real PITA.

This is still a cool solution and really nice for pellets. I'm going to look for something a bit larger, though for whole leaf hops.

yeah.. i've only ever used pellets so that hasn't been a problem for me, but i can see how that would be an issue.

For a larger diameter, get the sink drain deigned to hook into a garbage disposal. Still SS, same size opening at the top, but it doesn't get narrow like the one designed to hook into a drain pipe. It works well for pellet or leaf.
