I have read about the hop spyder, but was thinking if the hops dont have an affect in the primary, why worry about it and not just dump the whole thing in. After I chill using my IC just open the valve, pitch, and thats it.

My challenge was it was getting stuck/clogged when draining into carboy's. Tried bazooka screen, drip tube before the spyder without good results, now I have no problems. Worked for me.

So do you lift up the spyder to place the IC at the end of your boil?

I noticed a lot of people had problems with the bazooka tube. I think im going to try it without a strainer and dump it right from the boil kettle into the fermenter. If it gets stuck I will make a spyder or just use bags, but the simplicity of draining it all in sounds good.

well I use a plate chiller and recirc it until the entire volume gets down to temp in the BK, then drain it. You can do the whole thing without taking off the spyder that way. For IC, yeah just take it off.
Bazooka works great in my mash tun though.
