I've read elsewhere that they're very good for imparting hop aroma - wondering if anyone on the list uses or has used one.

From the bodensatz site

"A hop-back is a little air-tight chamber that gets filled with fresh hops or hop plugs (sorry, pellets won't work), and gets stuck in the siphon line between the brewpot and the counter-flow wort chiller. It serves 2 purposes

* the hops help filter out any hotbreak that makes it into the line
* you get mega-armoma and flavour from the hops"
