I've only used this once so far, but the screen did it's job in keeping the brew process cleaner. For 20 years, I've followed the John Palmer technique and thrown hops directly into the rolling boil and had great hop utilization results. I found that the screen blocked the "rolling & crashing" of the hops against each other, and instead, they steeped, so I'm not sure about full utilization results. I use a homemade filter system when transferring wort from the boil pot to the fermenter, and with this screen, I literally had no hop sediment in my homemade filter. If I decide to go back to my old method of adding hops directly in the boil pot, this screen will work perfectly in filtering while transferring wort to the fermenter.
Well built. Easy to clean. Fast shipping.
I enjoy not having to clean the mess out of my brew kettle.
I like that this hop filter uses a 400 micron screen rather than 300 like you see on other versions. The 400 may let a bit of hops escape, but it doesn't clog and allows more flow than the 300 micron screen. I use a 300 micron screen for dry hopping, but in the kettle this is definitely the way to go.
Product delivered was as shown on the website. Price was right. USPS delivery was weeks late, box was sagging and wet. Product was OK though. Not the vendor's fault. Will put to use this Spring.
