I'll post a pic if it works.
For Pellets I just let them go wild in the boil kettle. I usually whirlpool and have a side pickup tube so the trub is usually out of the way.
It's the Simco and Citra that I have in whole leaf (because that's all I could find) that I've been having trouble with lately. Hoping this spider takes care of that.
