Great Strainer for Buckets
This thing works like a champ. I like it better than in the kettle filters as I can stop the flow and rinse and go again.

Fits perfectly on a bucket and helps to aerate the wort too.

Strainer Appears as Advertised
Haven't had the opportunity to use it yet but it looks as advertised and very sturdy construction. It should save a lot of transfer time from kettle to fermenter.

Quality Goods
Bought this to help suspend my mesh bag for BIAB boils, and it is pleasingly sturdy construction that fits perfectly over my 15 gallon brewkettle!

excellent strainer, used last week and was surprise how good it was. I would recommend this item if you are looking to make clear beer.

Not that functional
My intent in buying this was to strain loose hops out of wort. Long story short, it clogged with hops immediately (twice). I'll be going to hop bags, so I don't see what future purpose it will serve. This item will likely go into the red herring box or repurposed for occasional kitchen use.

Rusted after one use
Was supposed to be stainless steel. I know another review reported rust as well, but I didn't leave it soaking overnight like they did, so I'm not sure why it rusted. There are two layers of mesh, one with larger and one with smaller holes. The larger holed layer rusted, while the smaller holed one is completely fine, along with the rest of the metal parts of the handle and rim. It worked well for one brew, and held a lot of the sediment and aerated the wort perfectly. Just disappointed in the rust, hopefully it was just one quality control issue.

Response from Northern Brewer
Stainless Steel is a slightly misleading name. Removal of oxidized stains and even “surface rust” can be done by using a paste made from baking soda and water or a cleaner that contains oxalic acid, such as Bar Keeper's Friend Soft Cleanser.

Used it to strain when pouring from kettle to fermenter. It kept out a ton of sludge from getting in there, as well as aerating the wort as I poured.

Worked like a champ. I've tried a few other ways but this is by far the best way to strain the wort. It a lot finer than I thought it would be too. You will agree too....

worked like a charm. strained out the majority of the trub when transferring to the fermenter.

Sturdy strainer
Nice large and sturdy strainer. My complaint would be that a couple of strands of mesh appeared to be rusted after one use, despite supposedly being stainless steel.

What is the size of the mesh? (Example 400, 300 microns)
Bart S on Jun 26, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Sorry, I do not know the exact specs of the strainer. But I do know that it is the best strainer I've come across. Depending on what you are straining, it works sometimes too well. It works best when you strain out the large particles first (coarse strainer or strainer bags.... then use the strainer to take care of the fine stuff.
I received my strainer. Upon opening the box I noticed the coarse screen is on the outside with the fine screen on the inside. What good does coarse screen do if the wort goes through the fine screen first. Is this how the strainer was designed, or is the one I received the one that slipped by quality control? I just can't make sense of it...

BEST ANSWER: That is how mine is too. I agree it doesn't make much sense but if it were the other way sediments would be caught in between the meshes and hard to clean. If it separated for cleaning that would be better with course first and find after. But I don't think with the current set up you would like it reversed. Though I agree the course mesh seems superfluous. Good luck
Hi .. I'm going to be brewing some beer soon! What do I use this strainer for? I did buy one from here too with a deluxe brewing kit too with a few more things on the way.

Thank you!

BEST ANSWER: Hello Jeff,

That strainer has many purposes. One would be using it in a BIAB brew when you sparge your grains. It is also nice to use to filter your wort as it goes into the fermenter. This works best by lining the strainer with a fine mesh bag to catch the trub. It is basically just a great tool for straining out particulate matter from beer.
how do I use it? I'm new here.. thank you
Jeff M on Feb 21, 2016

Thank you for choosing Northern Brewer! The instructions for use of the stainless steel strainer are dependent on what you are using the strainer for. What will you be using it for?
What's the diameter?
John T on Jan 25, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hello Johnny,

Thank you for choosing Northern Brewer! The diameter of the basket is 10.25". I hope that this helps!
