The dry hopper you ordered will work perfectly I'm sure. Just a good spray with the water hose sprayer and it was clean. This things have so many uses. I have a nice collection now! wouldn't get rid of any at this point.

So I'm considering either an 8 or 6 inch diameter model for my boilermaker. How many oz of leaf hops can be crammed into something like that? I usually use 6 to 8 oz in an ipa.

Keg dry hopper looks great.

Here are some pictures of the keg dry-hopper. Yes, the top is screwed to a matching band which has been welded to mesh frame.
