Product details

Unleash an explosion of flavors with the Depth Charge® Stainless Steel Infuser (Patent Pending) for Big Mouth Bubbler®. Easy to clean and sanitize, the stainless steel mesh delivers a blast of dry hops, fruit, oak chips, or spices directly into your beer or wine while minimizing the mess. Easily control flavorings to maximize their punch, without the risk of over-extraction.

Note: Big Mouth Bubbler® fermenter is not included.

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.

Depth Charge/Dry Hop Filter works so well

I’ve used my depth charge several times and am so happy I have it. First used it to pour from kettle to carboy. Helped SO much to filter out trub. After primary, just a nice layer of yeast at bottom. Racking to secondary was a breeze. Have 6.5 and 5 gallon Big Mouth Bubbler’s, both with spigots, so transfer is fast, easy and so so clean.

Dry hopping is much nicer too. Allowed hops to sit for 5-7 days, then mashed them out after that and removed depth charge. Notably less debris in carboy.

My yield has gone up as well, since I have less loss when transferring from kettle and primary. Had over 5 gallons after transfer. Adding just 1oz of hops (pellets) to depth charge in secondary, ended up with minimal head room (couple of inches) in 5 gallon bubbler, so that creates a concern for large dry hop adds. For those, I may opt to use a second 6.5 for secondary or just use the 6.5 bubbler for the entire fermentation.

Depth charge is easy to clean and sturdy, if you are careful. I run it upside down under running water and have no problem removing all debris. Cleaning after the kettle pour took a little longer than the dry hop adds, but not unnecessarily so.

Great for dry hopping

I would give this a 5 star if the product would screw on to the fermenter. Having to synch down on the lid isn't ideal. You have to make sure it's really tight in order to get an air tight seal. Other than that the product kept my beer free from hops, coffee, and vanilla beans that were added to secondary fermentation.

Cleaning Challenge

The Depth Charge is a wonderful addition to my fermentation system! It truly is a 5 star product however the cleaning process is a bit of a job. Hop particulate will become trapped along the bottom stainless steel ring and when rinsing it sticks to the mesh screen. I have started using a tall 5 gallon bucket to completely submerge the vessel and rinse. It does the best job for me. I have also had success letting all the particulate dry and then let it flake off. For someone that obsesses about equipment cleaning this tool takes a good deal of effort. The functionality of the Depth Charger far outweighs the extra time it takes to clean properly.

Excited to Use This

Really looking forward to putting this device to use. I really enjoy making hop heavy IPA's, and the depth charge will definitely simplify the dry hop process. I especially like that it fits right into the opening on my Big Mouth fermenter, and with the stainless pusher, I should be able to extract even more hoppy goodness into my beer, and not worry about hop residue clogging the valve when I rack to secondary. Very happy with this purchase.

Works Amazingly

I've used the depth charge 3 times already in the short time I've had it and it has worked perfectly each time. It even doubles as a hop spider during a boil if you're like me and don't want to buy a separate piece of equipment for a big price tag. I've had no issues rinsing it clean. Just tip upside down, knock out the trub, and run under the faucet soon after removing it from the fermentor/kettle. I would recommend this to anyone with a big mouth bubbler who wants an easy way to dry hop without sacrificing their yield to trub.
