That thing is awesome, wonder if they could make a shorter version to work with wide and short brew kettles?

They can. I ordered a 4x 10 to fit my 8 gallon brew pot. He will make whatever you want!

Sorry. Getting my threads confused. Check out this link. I ordered a custom all stainless hop spider from him. He can do whatever you want http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f11/new-...p-gunk-352293/

Thanks for the pictures Eastoak. I'm curious why you didn't get the hook legs/arms. Wouldn't that pretty much stabilize the strainer in the middle of the keggle? He shows a picture on the stainlessbrewing.com website (bottom picture) that shows the 6.5 in with hook arms on a keggle and I think that's what I want even though in the comments he indicates the straight legs are for the keggle? Aren't the keg diamaters pretty consistent?

i didn't think about how nice those hooked arms would have been until i was using it having said that i find that it works very well without them, it does not slip off when i'm using it.

The straight legs are cut to fit on top portion of the keg that's been cut out. The last leg needs to be inserted through the keg handle. This will keep the legs from slipping out as it rests against the upper keg wall. I've seen a number of people using it this way as well. Glad it's working out for you!

Thanks for all the advice. I placed my order yesterday. Looking forward to brewing without the hopstopper hassles.

Currently using 30 mesh. Going to bring in some 50 to see if it will help keep the pellets in without decreasing hop utilization.
