Have not tried it yet but seems well built & will keep hop particals out the bottom of the pot .

Sealing Issue
Decent product. Holds 1 oz of hops. It does not have a tight seal - it keeps out 98% hop matter, but some does sneak through. Otherwise a very good product if you want to use more of your clear wort in the fermenter. I also use this for fruit additions at the end of the boil to prevent fruit matter (i.e. orange peel) from clogging the kettle drain.

I would love to see this product in a larger size (one that could hold up to 6 oz hops would be clutch for my 20 gallon brew pot!)

these would be great if they were made better...
there is a HUGE gap between the two halves that allows the hops to flow through even when closed properly with the clip and renders the fine mesh screen useless...
better off using a small nylon hop bag

Response from Northern Brewer
There should not be that level of gap between the two sides. Customer Service will be in contact soon to work on a resolution. Thanks for the review.

Hop Steeper
This is the first hop steeper I've bought. Relatively new to home brewing (1-2 years) and am still trying to fine tune my process. On other brews I have just poured the dry hop pellets directly into the wort and strained it out before kegging which makes a lot more of a mess. This hop steeper works in principal, but I'm not sure enough of the flavor is transferred... When I removed the 1oz of wet/used hops at the end of the week long dry hop, the hop steeper was packed so tight I had to use a butter knife to open and remove all of the hop residue. It's probably best to use one hop steeper for every 1/2oz of hop pellets to allow enough room for the hops to be free floating in the liquid.

Good for pellets
Great for a dry hop addition so long as it's pellets. If doing a big addition use a bag or multiple steepers.

Great for dry hopping
I bought this to use for dry hopping with hop pellets in my secondary. Works great, sanitize it put in your hops and drop it in the secondary. It's well made and works great.

Way too small
One ounce of hops expands to fill the entire inside very quickly. I ended up abandoning it mid-boil and just going with a mesh bag.

more chinese gotcha
I used these tea ball for dry hopping, never again. To my suprise the most important part of the tea ball isn't stainless steel. The rivet that holds the clasp on is some sort of pot metal. It corroded after a couple of dry hopping was rendered useless. I would strongly advise against using this product.

Its Okay
It works okay so long as you use 1/2 ounce or less. I tried 3/4 of an ounce and even that was too much for the small size of this product.

Keeps the hops in
It certainly keeps all of the matter from the hops pellets I use contained. The problem is that very little of the aroma or bitterness actually made it into the beer, and I was using 1 ounce per steeper. I have yet to try them for dry hopping where this product may shine, but for use in boil they are not very practical.
