Is there any reason this is not a good idea? I see everyone going "Cheap" using a pvc couple but some have shown that this is not food safe and they can melt. Option two, is to use a SS sink flange, but those are like $15. So would cutting the top and bottom off of a 1$ can of soup a good alternative?

I just use a wooden dowel and a clothespin. Works good for me.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe that soup cans still contain BPA. Which is more of a hazard when heated.

Yeah. I think some cans have a "plastic" liner. I also thought of this, but I wondered if it would rust. I made a cheap hop basket with $1.50 paint strainer, free copper wire and a free dowel: CLICK

The cut edges of the can might rip the strainer fabric.

Oh well, gonna go with just filtering out the hops with EZ Strainers
They are cheap and look very effective, plus you get all your hop utilization.
