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.
For this mesh size how much loss of the bitterness vs direct contact?
Denis Shatilov on Jan 30, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hi Denis - The loss of bitterness is rather minuscule using the hop spider.

Large Hop Spider
This is the second one we have purchased. They work very well. We recommend these only if you have a very deep boiling kettle, 24" or greater.

It is a game changer. I used a hop bag prior to getting this and glad I have it. Fits great in the Robobrew.

The hook needed some modification to fit into my Mash and Boil, bit other than that it works as advertised. I’m happy with my purchase.

Beats muslin socks and will pay for itself
I've been using muslin hop socks for adding hops during the boil. As a result, I used to get a lot of hop residue my wort, whether from leakage or socks tearing on the therm, chiller, etc. No such worries with this. I estimate it will pay for itself in hop socks after a couple dozen brews. As others have mentioned it could maybe use a lid or handle modification to prevent overflow as a result of a heavy rolling boil.

Good product that needs a couple tweeks
It needs a latching lid to keep the hops in! A weighted bottom would also help to keep it from floating when using whole hops. Other than those problems I had when using it it worked well.

Overflow issues
If the boil gets rolling, the hops often come out over the top of the spider defeating the purpose of the spider in the first place.
