Description

Make your brew day easier and your additions more efficient with a  MoreBeer! Kettle Spider. Attach one of our reusable nylon bags with drawstring and use the Kettle Spider to steep grains in an extract batch or use for multiple hop additions in a boil. 

Often when you use a bag for hops or grain you are not getting the full extraction of flavor or alpha acids. With an ideal placement in the middle of your kettle, the Kettle Spider aids in extraction of flavor, oils and alpha acids. Get MoreFlavor!

The Kettle Spider makes bags easier to use with hops because it is open throughout the boil. Just keep adding the hops your recipe calls for. Also keeps bags off the bottom of the kettle, preventing a hole from developing in your bag.

Made from 304 Stainless steel with adjustable anti-slip silicone sleeves the Kettle Spider will fit most all kettles.  Diameter of the hole: 3 3/4".  Length of Arms: 10".

Tip: Instead of tying the bag on you can optionally use a 4" Tri-Clamp fitting to upgrade your setup, and firmly connect a bag to the spider! A customer using this product also suggests using a Keg Lid O-Ring to hold your bag in place.

Max Kettle Diameter - 23"

 

Please note that this item does not include a mesh bag.

Hop basket that hangs on side of BK is too deep & interferes with electric boil coil.

Well worth it. Best hop containment I've bought and I've tried plenty. This is the one!

Excellent addition to my brewing set-up
I have been using a hop bag to reduce the amount of muck in my wort for some time. I've been attaching the bags to the rim of my kettle with a clothes pin but have never been confident of the circulation. Adding hops to a closed draw string bag in a boiling kettle is a bitch. The kettle spider is the perfect solution to several problems. It is a little pricey but well made and I have never found one elsewhere. It is big enough to use with any kettle I am ever likely to own and centers the bag in the kettle for optimum circulation. I draw the bag up through the opening and secure it to the rim of the spider and secure it with three spring-clip wooden clothespins. That allows leaving the mouth of the bag wide open and well above the liquid for easy mid-boil additions. Three clip-type clothes pins hold the bag in place very effectively. I also use it for steeping the grain bags with my extract brews. I only wish I had not paid for the tri-clamp and the keg o-ring which were suggested as possible means to attach the bag. Either of them would be more cumbersome than the clothespins.

no burned fingers, seems like less trub
I purchased this when my hop bags started to wear out. I thought: why not just get 1 big bag rather than 4 small ones? It's much easier to pour the hops into the opening, rather than using a bag for each addition.

Awesome! Does exactly what it is made for.
Product is excellent. I use a regular rubber band to keep the bag attached. The plastic/rubber on the ends make it so you can grasp it even while hot.

Must buy
I coupled this with a silicone oring and a hop bag to add hops to the boil. It works great over my 20 gal BK. I have virtually zero hop trub when I use this. Best accessory purchase

Great tool to keep your beer clear
The Kettle Spider is an extremely useful gadget to minimize the amount of trub in your wort. I use this along with paint filter bags (from a big box store) to minimize the amount of hop vegetation in the trub. I secured the bags to the ring with a rubber band and put ball bearings in the bottom to keep the hanging near the bottom of the kettle. It increased the yields in my beer batches. Highly recommend this tool!

No more floating bags!
I've used this hop spider a number of times both with 10 and 15 gallon Blichmann pots and love it! As other reviewers suggested, I just put a Keg o-ring around the hop bag and it stays put with no problems. I really like the fact that it has silicone sleeves that you can adjust to meet the pot width. This thing has really made my brew day experience with hops a lot easier!

Worthwhile Investment
This works perfectly with my MoreBeer Low Rider system, since the depth of the kettle coincides well with the length of the muslin hop bag that you put in the hop spider. Here's how it works. Step 1: clip a hop bag onto the spider with a few binder clips. Step 2: dangle the hop spider with the attached bag over the kettle and drop your hops into the bag, then lower the bag into the boiling wort and set the spider on top of the kettle. Now you have an anchor to hold the bag open for subsequent additions. It's that easy. And yes, it catches all the hop gunk that would otherwise end up in your fermenter. It is certainly not perfect, but I'd guess it captures approx. 90% of the hop matter that goes into it.

Great quality
I was very pleased with the quality of this. Arms were plenty long for my 10 gallon kettle. The silicon sleeves allow for maneuvering the spider as needed for stirring, putting in immersion chiller, etc. Great idea by other reviewer on a corny o-ring- works perfectly to hold hop bag snug. I should have bought this long ago!
