I would be interested in one of the carboy filters. That would be great for dry hopping and filtering when siphoning

19" in height (with bump in the center of the bottom that comes up about an inch and a half)

Opening takes a #10 stopper and is about 1.75 inches (inner diameter).

This will probably work as is, my Italian 6.5g carboy is 20" tall (from top of hump) and 1" opening. You'd need a tapered stopper but other than that I think it's about 18" long so that it will work for more than just glass carboys. I even think this will work in my small conical too.

Idk that I've seen a stopper that can plug both a 1" and a 1.75" hole, plus 18" is probably slightly too long for a better bottle by a half inch or so.

Chad has one on the way to me as well. I can't wait to try it!
I have a Rye IPA that's just about to go into secondary where I'll dry hop using Chad's latest.

Man, wish I wasn't out of town when he was offering the prototypes! Sounds like we'll have some good general feedback soon, awesome.

Welcome Chad,
It is good to see ya here. I have used my screen and love it. It left little to no hop junk in the kettle. Chad how about one like a funnel for the fermenter, that would be great.
Thanks,
Paul

Hey marcb! I was checking out pix in post 584 a page or so back and noticed what looks like a whirlpool device you got piped over the edge of your brew pot. Can you post a few more pix of that? I have all the fittings for a whirlpool but was dreading punching another hole in my pot and didn't like the idea of adding another valve on the outside. What you have there looks like just the ticket!! It would be great to see pix on the outside, how you have it plumbed together, yada yada! Thanks and thanks for pointing us to Chad!

PS - that carboy hop screen looks awesome!
