I have the Mac Daddy and so far it has worked wonderfully. Im not a big hop user and have bags as is for during the boil to help not allow particles to pass. When taking from my conical to my keg especially with fruited beers (fresh fruit I peel, core, cut up, puree) and then add into my beers. The time I used it the beer had 15lbs of white peaches and the Mac Daddy did not disappoint. It didn’t let a single piece get through the filter and into the keg. I have not used it for tons of hops but would believe that this device would definitely help. You have to make sure the flow of your connects and the device are right or it wont work as designed.
I just used one of these this past weekend with a 50 mesh screen to Randall whole leaf hops and it worked great. You can but it in 20, 50 & 80 mesh sizes and but just the screens for a few bucks.
Any idea if those materials are rated to food?
I got one for Christmas and I really like mine. For IPAs and such this filter enables us to dryhop without a bag and then perform a sealed transfer to a keg without getting debris plugging up your keg connections. Yes the screen is coarse, but it is tight enough to catch the problematic pellet hop particles.
I’m calling BS on this. That screen is very coarse so it won’t be able to filter out anything but the largest of particles. Their question and response on Amazon indicates the proteins “adhere to the stainless screen.” but “You can’t see these particles with your eye”. Seriously? There might be some residual proteins left on the screen, but the majority are passing straight through those (relatively) huge holes that I can see with my eyes.
Also per their Amazon response, “Our experience with smaller screen gauges or paper filters is that they clog quickly”…that’s because they’re actually filtering debris out rather than letting all those particles pass straight through.
Unless this thing includes pixie dust or unicorn magic, you’re much better off using something that actually works, like a hop spider.
Ditto, I’d like one with a 1/2″ ID or the ability to attach with 1/2″ NPT for Camlocks.
