It's a FILTER--It works!
I use this screen with my antisplash funnel and it works VERY well. In fact, it keeps the excess grain and hop particles out so well that it occasionally clogs. Which is when I exchange the clogged screen for a fresh one--it continues to pick up the garbage that would otherwise be in my beer, and it makes the whole funneling process go more quickly. And at only $0.99 a piece, these are very affordable. I don't understand why people complain when a filter clogs because it keeps solid particles from entering their fermenter (because that is exactly what it is designed to do).

Great when used with a fine hop bag.
The whole idea is to filter while pouring. Try using a fine mesh nylon hop bag for your hop pellets. What the bag doesn't grab the funnel screen will. It's a great one-two punch. The funnel screen is a necessity for me.

Cheap and easy
I bought three of these and threw them into my bucket of sanitizer. Stuck one into the funnel and started pouring in wort at a slowish pace. The mesh screen is about the right fineness to keep out most of the break material. I use a bag for the hops, so I'm not dealing with hop sludge, which I think would make this less feasible. But I found it really easy to pour in the wort till the flow slows, pop out the screen, and put in a new one. I ended using about 2 screens per gallon. Once they're used up, I rinse them off in the sink then throw them back in the sanitizer. Having 3 makes it much less of hassle. With just one, you'd be stopping all the time. They're only $0.99, so I recommend getting a few.

Catches the crud for cleaner beer.
I use this when transferring from brew kettle to primary fermenter, then from primary to bottling bucket. Filters out the extra crud and makes for cleaner beer.

YOU get with it.
If one would whirlpool or better clarify before pouring, one wouldn't have the clogging. GREAT product. NB...ever think of making a multi-step set with several mesh sizes?? Maybe "stackable...course to fine??

Excellent tool but requires something more
This screen is excellent, but I use a flat-tipped stainless-steel spoon to clear the trub once the screen clogs. It's simple, and I prefer this method to siphoning since it's quicker and doesn't require the use of plastic tubing to transfer from kettle to carboy.

Use with a strainer too
Clogs fairly easily, but I have a strainer for the heavy stuff. For filtering what goes through the funnel, this does the job.

Good for the Price
If you pour the wort carfully, you should be able to use this with no problem. I unclog it about 3 times per 5 gallons. I like it.

yes it clogs -Its suppose to...
Strainers are meant to stop access stuff from entering your fermentor when pouring. Thus, this strainer will clog when you pour your batch of wort into the fermenter; this means its doing its job very well infact. For $.99 and it "locks" or "snaps" into place its really a fine and handy thing to have. Pour the last gallon or two slowly and unclog as you go its way better than bringing all the access in with the wort. Sombody mentioned using it as a second strainer, I'm going to try than it sounds like a great idea!
