Resurrecting the 2 times dead thread here. I wanted to buy this
, but don't want to pay $80. So I started looking here
and found a ton of different screen sizes. I figured I could just fold and crimp the ends to make a tight seal and then somehow get it over the dip tube in my blichmann pot.
The only thing I'm wondering, how small is too small? If I get a super fine mesh will it block all the hops AND all the trub material to the point that I won't get any of those trub proteins in my fermenter. I don't want all the trub, but I think I want some...
