What are the recommendations for bags in the Wort to hold hops and anything else I might put in there? I have seen a PVC looking bolted holder above a converted ked. Is that a DIY or something available on market? I do not use a standard pump and the one drawback is, it is relatively easy for me to plug up my intake. Any draw backs to a bag system for hops?

Thanx!

Um, I can get you one for the low low price of ONE MILLION DOLLARS!!!

Seriously though, pretty sure most of the ones you see in threads are DIY... Matter of fact, I am picking up my pvc collar part today... As far as drawbacks, I don't recall hearing of any...

Good Luck!

I use a paint strainer bag from any of the big box stores. If I just have one hop addition I just tie it and toss it in. When I have more that one addition, I have a DIY hop bag holder that is pretty ghetto but gets the job done. If you do a search on here you can see some of the better ones. You probably want the biggest strainer bag they have for a converted keggle.

Something along these lines Finish Factor at Lowe's: 5 Gallon Strainers - 2 Pack
