Q: I am looking to find out when you will have the 4" x 10" hop filter available?
I placed my name on a waitlist, but have not heard anything back.
[email protected] or [email protected]
A: The filters are on order with the supplier but can take some time to get in. We are expecting them to arrive by the end of Q1 2019 but have not gotten an exact date or return to provide at this time
Q: Which size diameter hop filter best fits inside of the robobrew 3? It seems the 6"x10" filter will hit the mash pipe in the center.
A: the 6x10 can potentially be used but the 6x14 would give better clearance inside of the boiler
Q: Regarding the 92-2001 hop filter - Should one increase the IBU calculation to compensate for loss when using the filter during the boil? By what percentage?
A: There will be a slight loss of utilization but calculating the usage at about 90% has been what we have found is the best usage rate to go with
Q: Would this hop filter be compatible with the pot noted below?
5 Gallon Stainless Steel Brew Pot (Item Number: 99-2555)
A: the kettles stand 11.5" tall so the filter can be used
Q: Will this item and my wort chiller fit in my 8 gal mega pot at the same time? I need to add two hop additions in the last fifteen minutes of the boil as well as boil-sanitize the chiller.
A: this will vary depending on the diameter of the kettle. The filter measures 4" in diameter so depending on the size wort chiller you using, you can base the information off of those measurements
Q: Hello, I have a 10 gallon Blichmann, wondering if this filter is the best size for my kettle or is the 6 x 14 better? Also - for the 4 x 10 - whats the max amount of pellet hops it can handle and still work well?
A: For the 10 gallon kettle the 6x14 is recommended as this will allow for more wort flow through the filter for heavily hopped beers. The amount each filter holds will vary depending on the density of the hops being added
Q: Will this fit onto the side of a grainfather?
A: The 4x10 will hang on the Grainfather, but will sit fairly high in the boil and would not allow for much wort movement through the filter. The 6x10 adjustable will allow for move flexibility on the system
Q: I've seen other filters that are 300 micron that say they are better for pellet hops and that 400 is really for whole leaf hops. Is that true?
A: 400 micron works well with pelleted hops as well as whole cone. The smaller 300 micron is more prone to clogging with pellets and we have found the 400 micron allows more wort flow for better contact with the hops
Q: I notice that some of the pictures show feet on the bottom but others don't. Does this spider come with feet on the bottom for holding the spider away from the kettle side?
A: This filter will just have the rounded metal bottom and does not include any tabs or feet on the bottom
Q: Is this efficient to retain hop pellets sediments or is it only useful for whole hops?
A: This will work with both whole cone and pellets due to the micron size of the mesh
