The hop spider sits on the edge of your kettle. Hops are poured directly into the spider during the boil. It can hold about 10-11 oz of hops. Made from 304 stainless steel. The mesh is 0.2 mm aperture so it will capture 99% of the hop material. The basket is 13.75 in (35cm) high with the opening at the top being 5.9 in (15cm) diameter and tapers down to a 3.9 in (10cm) diameter at the bottom.

Will this do well with my 10 gallon Anvil Kettle?
John Coughlin on Sep 2, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Should be fine, John. You may need to modify the handle depending on your setup. I use the same spider with my 10 gallon Brewbuilt. I wanted to raise the bottom of the spider to sit above my electric heating element. Simply modified the handle to raise the resting height. This also allowed the spider’s top rim to stay well above the boil level. Good luck.

Just okay.
I’m still searching for a good hop stopper. The first one of these had a long handle/hook that I bent out to lower farther into the boil (I’m brewing on 30 gallon Stout Tanks equip). The second two I ordered had a shorter hook that I could not bend to lengthen.

Should’ve invested a long time ago!
This was a surprise from the wife, she actually payed attention to my homebrew equipment ramblings. I love this thing! I brewed with it Saturday and Monday... man I’m in love! Beat the hell out of the PVC Hop Spider. P.S. thanks for supporting The BN

As advertised
Keeps hops out of the fermenter as advertised. Its hugely tall though, have to set it diagonally in my 8 gallon pot. A shorter version would be nice.

Mesh is too fine
I can't say I've found this hop spider to be very useful. The mesh plugs if using hop pellets - and you simply get no liquid exchange. With whole leaf, it becomes completely filled with 4oz. You're better off with a hop bag. It does fit nicely in a keggle.

Great addition
Worked great with a 5.5 oz whirlpool charge. Cleaned up easily in a little PBW. Saves a lot of trouble cleaning my plate chiller.

Small mesh screen.
Mesh is small and clogs easily. After a couple ounces of hops the mesh had clogged and wort stopped flowing through completely.
