I just got one from stainless brewing as well. I was impressed with the quality. I could see how it could get dented, but then I'm not planning to play foot ball with it. I guess I need to use it for a few years and see how it holds up, but it seems sturdy enough.

Just found another use for this basket. I racked a heavily dry hopped Red Ale into a keg this morning and then placed the hop basket inside a large pitcher, poured the sludge out of the bottom of the carboy through it and ended up with a nice pint of clean yeast without any hop gunk.

Just received my 10x13" 400 micron mash basket from Chad. Should work great for my 2.5gl AG system. I started a new thread here.

Anyone have any thoughts of the implications of the basket (4-6" dia.) sitting directly on the bottom of a burner heated kettle, versus sitting 0.5-1 inch off of the bottom? I am strongly considering one for my 10 gal boilermaker, and I wonder if it is also worth it to have some sort of stand-off from the side of the kettle (like the third and fourth pix in the ebay listing), so the the wort can freely circulate around the entire basket.

Mine sits around 1-2 inches off the bottom I think when I hang it from the side. I have on several occasions, taken it off the side and let it sit on the bottom. I had no issues with it on the bottom of a kettle headed with a big propane burner.

Give it a shot. If you don't like it for the boil, it actually works great to strain the wort going into the fermenter and aerate it as well.

I've found my beers clear a bit sooner with not having all the crap in the fermenter. If anything, it's easier to clean the carboys out.
