Product Details
The Depth Charge is a great addition to the Big Mouth Bubbler® arsenal. And it's designed for both plastic and glass.

The unique design allows the mesh basket to be removed at any time, perfect for creating a custom flavor schedule and the removal of nearly all trub material before racking. Never worry about floating specks in your bottles or clogged keg dip tubes ever again. A custom punch-down tool enables regular agitation of the flavorings and helps squeeze every tasty drop from the infuser, without disturbing the rest of the batch. Less wasted beer and wine. More flavor and experimentation. Any infusion you can think of.

Drop the Depth Charge™ into your next batch.

Best dry hop tool available
I have tried many things and find this easiest for dry hoping and fruit infusion

Works Better than Advertised
I have used this for a month so far for dry hopping and found it worked well as advertised. It keeps the hop mess out of the beer and hop infusion in the beer is excellent too. This alone improved the beer clarity and taste plus keeps the mess out of the kegs.

But I have also used this for wort filtering during transfer from the brew kettle to the fermenter. Just set the lid and screen in place on the fermenter and pour the wort down center of the lid opening. This results in very clear wort and transfers every last drop. I have noticed the Original Gravity is higher too. Also when you're done, you can dump the drained trub in the garden (or trash can) rather than running it down the drain.

Keeps beer clear of floating hops when transferring to the keg
I now can dry hop without having to pick hop flakes out of my teeth while drinking my kegged homebrew. Although, I never really minded it!

Great product
easy easy easy to infuse large volume hops. Clean up is so easy. I have two big mouths and I am contemplating getting another so I can run two batches concurrently.

So far so good
Worked well for me. The lid still has the same flaw the the other bubbler lids have (pops up during fermentation). I bought some straps that help with that issue. The screen is a little hard to clean, but I didn't let it soak overnight so that may help. Just kegged a black IPA after dry hopping with this. It did its job and kept the hops contained in the cylinder. The sample I took tasted pretty good. I will see how well the hop profile holds up a week after kegging.

Nice way to dry hop
Great for dry hopping or fruit additions. The top where the airlock fits in could be a bit firmer

Good new tool!
Hard to keep all hops (specially cones) inside, rubber lid port does not offer a good seal, works good for a filter

Quality is Lacking
Found mesh screen to be rather loose around bottom ring. I wouldn't buy current model again due to poor construction.

How will this do with pellet hops?
A shopper on Jan 2, 2017
BEST ANSWER: A negligible amount of hop material may get through. Pellet hops are easier to stir or agitate with the plunger.
Is there a 1 gallon version?
A shopper on Dec 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: There is not a one gallon version available at this time.
How does this fair with pellet hops?
A shopper on Jan 2, 2017

Will this fit the Glass Big Mouth Bubbler?
A shopper on Jan 3, 2017

Will this thing fit the Catalyst fermenter?
A shopper on Dec 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The Depth Charge is not designed for the Catalyst, however the filter portion fits snug between the bottom of the lid, and the cone of the fermenter. You will not be able to access the filter with the lid on.
Can you guys make a video for this?

Can a stopper thermowell fit and be used with the depth charge?
A shopper on Jan 27, 2017
Big Mouth Bubbler® Depth Charge™
Big Mouth Bubbler® Depth Charge™
Stopper Thermowell
Stopper Thermowell
BEST ANSWER: The lid has a white silicone seal at the top with a hole that is 3/8" wide, so it can accept a standard airlock. The thermowell, once removed from the stopper, would fit there just fine, but this could only be done during a secondary after fermentation is long done or pressure could built.
Is the air lock still used with this set up ?
A shopper on Jan 11, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the airlock can be used with this lid.
How about peanut butter powder?
A shopper on Jan 7, 2017
BEST ANSWER: We have not tested this, but feel peanut butter powder may be too fine for the 300 micron mesh, or it could completely clog the mesh.
I have a 5 gallon plastic and 6.5 gallon plastic Big Mouth Bubblers with the the screw on lid/rings. Will the 'Depth Charge' work with these?
A shopper on Nov 30, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the universal lid style will work with those.
