how many grams can you fit in on of those balls?beercus said:ImageUploadedByAussie Home Brewer1406079271.191100.jpg
i use these tea balls. Easy to use and easy to clean. I have 4 or 5, they just clip onto the pot.
I got the smallest arbor fab one. Flowers used..... Noooooo. Fills up too quick.lael said:I was just reading about these over at hbtalk. Arborfab.com seems to be cheaper than stainless brewing and people comment highly about them.
I use 3 'tea' balls and drop them into a stainless hop spider.beercus said:If my addition is more than 30g I will split into 2 balls. At the end of the boil they can be completely full if i use more than that. They are very cheap so with 4 or 5 you will be ok with a standard 23L brew (as long as its not a hop hog clone!)
This onelael said:How much can the arborfab ones fit? Happy with it? Did you go the 300micron one? I'm curious whether the 300 or 400 is better.
What was your total cost mb?mb-squared said:There's a consensus over on HBT that 300microns is the way to go: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f11/new-way-control-pellet-hop-gunk-352293/index3.html Be ready to read ~50 pages on that thread!
I had Chad at arborfab make me a 300micron one (15cm diameter, 45cm tall) to fit my pot perfectly and it works a charm. I've certainly never had any clogging issues and I've brewed up some hop monsters with all late addition hops.
