Q: Is there a screen on the inside of the lid?
A: yes, the lid includes the same 400 micron material under the larger lid hole openings
Q: Just received my hop filter and there is serious discoloration along all the weld points, almost looks like rust. What's going on?
A: This coloration change happens during the welding process and would not pose any risk of use with the product. The steel is passivated prior to being welded, and the process can remove some of the passivations You can re-passivate the steel, if needed, for peace of mind by soaking the product in a Starsan Solution, or a wash of lemon juice and water for 1 hour to re-passivate the steel
Q: How does the 400 micron hop filter with lid and chain work for dry hopping?
A: this would work well for dry hopping in buckets or carboys with a larger opening, or can be used to hook on the bottom of a keg lid with an eyelet in place to connect the chain to for dry hopping in a keg
Q: How many oz of hops can you add to this without them compacting to the point of lower extraction? Can this successfully fit 5-6 oz of pellets?
A: The cannister can hold several ounces of dried pellet, but they will expand once they absorb wort inside the secondary or keg. 6 oz would be the max reccomended amount
Q: Is it accurate to say the lid screws on rather than pushes on like other models? Note: pressure/push on models can't always handle the weight of wet pellet hops and the lid will come off when retrieving the canister spilling the hops out that you tried to screen in.
A: This lid is an actual screw on type that will not be pulled off in that fashion. It will need to be twisted off to be removed. Cheers!
Q: Do u post to Australia ?
A: We do, the cheapest shipping option based on all items added to the cart for the dimensional size and weight will be offered once your postal code and country information is entered into the site.
Q: Does this item come in a size that fits 3 gal kegs (AEB)?
A: the height if the filter is about 12" and the 3 gallon kegs typically are about 16" in height so there should not be an issue with the filter fitting if those dimensions match your keg
Q: I'm new to dry hopping, so how do you retrieve from the keg when done?( I have corny kegs)
A: The lid has a small Eyelet on the top that a piece of fishing or nylon line can be tied to to use for removal. The filter also fits through the lid of the keg so if it stays in the keg throughout serving, it can be removed when the keg is opened to be cleaned
Q: Is this Stainless Steel? What metal is it made of?
A: These are made with 304 Stainless Steel.
Q: Does the lid also have a screen in the top or is it just the bigger open holes and no screen in the top?
A: The same micron screen from the sides is used under the larger holes on the lid as well
Q: why do you want to force carbonate before adding the filter to the keg?
A: this is up to the used on when to add it in. the filter does have some weight to is but after the hops absorb beer, they become more buoyant and can float the filter towards the top, reducing the surface area on top of the keg, and increasing the carbonation time frame
Q: Is there any reason this couldn't be used in a fermenter to dry hop instead of a keg?
A: So lon as the filter can be added and retreived it should be fine to use in a wider mouth fermenter as well.
