Every single one on here is AWESOME! You know why.... Because they are all used to make outstanding beer!!!!

3dog,
Here is a better picture of my hop sock.




I use it whenever I add anything to the boil, hops, spices, whatever. It works great especially when brewing beers with lots of additions at different times, like an IPA. THe parts cost me about $8 at the orange box and it took about 15 to assemble, I am not sure what the long skinny hop bag costs, I got it when I bought some guys stuff off Craigslist. Every brewer needs one!

the Lil' Sparky Hop Sock is one of the best things I've ever added to my set-up. IPA brews are now easy instead of a PIA. Can't imagine brewing w/o it.

Looks quite a bit like mine that I'm slowly working on. Finally got it painted and the cement board up to deflect the heat. Waiting until after the new year to buy a couple pumps.



Here's a link to the tread I started for the build:

Sweet! I thought that might be what it was, but I didn't want to assume. You still get good hop utilization and don't have as big a mess to clean up? Sounds better than my Zymeco (sp) stainless mesh on the outlet port. Good idea, might have to build me one of those!

I built and used one for the first time this last Saturday and my primary thought was why didn't I do this sooner?

Yeah, I like it, too. But in all honesty it wasn't my idea. Someone else on here came up with it, and somehow I got the credit.

Anybody have any leads on what and where the nylon bag comes from? Links would be great.
