Q: Will the tabs on the 14" filter work on a keggle? Will they reach over the side? They look kinda small.
A: the tabs would not be long enough, or reach over the edge of a keggle
Q: Anyone using this with Grainfather?
A: This can be pur unti ouse withthe grainfather systems
Q: I have a "boil coil" so I want this to sit in the middle of the kettle and not hang off the side. is there some kind of hop spider attachment I can get to hang it in the middle?
A: not that is currently sold at this time. Something can be layed across the top of the kettle in the form of a steel or wooden bar to hook the filter onto
Q: Would you recommend using the filter for all hop additions during the boil, including a flame out addition?
A: it can be used for all hop addtions in the kettle including a flame out addtion
Q: how far into the wort do you typically immerse the hop screen copntainer?
A: The filters work best with as much submersion as possible. As the wort flows through it will continually move the hop matter around in the filter, and if the amount of wort contact is reduced, the hops will have less area to move and would be more prone to clogging with heavier additions
Q: I have the Bayou Classic 9 Gallon Stainless Steel Brew Pot that is 14 inches tall will this product fit correctly in the that brew kettle?
A: The filter is 14" from top to bottom. It would fit but may not allow for the use of the hooks/hinges to hand onto the sidewall properly
Q: Does this work with pellet hops?
A: It works with both leaf and pellet hops. Depending on the volume of hops used will determine how quickly the surface area will become covered and need to be scraped with a spoon or paddle.
Q: Do these filters work well for whole hop cones? I grow my own and use all whole hop so not sure if one filter would work. I was thinking getting this larger size for my 5 gallon batches?
A: They would work for hole cone, but depending on how many ounces were added, would vary how soon the surface area on the inside of the filter would get covered and clog. You can stir and scrap the sides with a paddle or spoon during use that would limit this but would not completely eliminate it for heavier hopped beers
Q: I use 26 gallon morebeer pots to brew 1/2 bbl batches, will this item hold enough hops for a strong IPA or IIPA...say about 1 to 1.5 lbs of pellets? Generally I start my boil approximately 3.5-4 inches from the top of the pot.
A: I recommend having no more than 7-8 ounces in these filters. While it's possible to fit the hops in, they may start to compact and not get good wort contact. It may be a good idea to get two filters and split the hops between the two.
Q: Would this hop filter work good in a 15.5 gallon keggle?
A: While the sizing of the filter would be good for a keg kettle, the hooks or hinges at the top would not be the best on the lip of a keg kettle. Item #92-2003 is usually a better fit on this type of boil kettle.
