Reader Tip: DIY Hop Screen


Thanks to HBF Reader Scott for this tip and picture!

From Scott: After looking at the much more expensive version I made some of my own with window screen as a test. They worked but tended to collapse and were difficult to clean.  Then I found this on Amazon.  After working a hole in it large enough to push the drain tube through bingo. It’s stiff, large enough around that it won’t clog easily and it comes apart for cleaning. Here is a photo of it installed in a 10 gal. kettle…
