    Great piece of kit
    Review by Kevinon 22/11/2016
    Great piece of kit. Not essential for the Grainfather, but a "nice to have". It worked efficiently. I used a beer paddle just to make sure that my hops were properly submerged in the brew, but they soon started to circulate within the basket. It made cleaning the Grainfather much easier and quicker.

    Fantastic
    Review by Garyon 01/09/2016
    Did my first brew without one of these and spent AGES cleaning the Grainfather out. Second brew done with this and was a much nicer process. I didn't notice any loss of quality or strength coming from the hops, everything seems to flow quite well through the thin mesh.

    The Grainfather instructions make it clear you don't need a hop spider, and the pump seemed fine to me without, but it does make cleaning a hell of a lot easier!!

    Let down
    Review by Thomason 09/07/2016
    I was pretty happy to see this item, makes a lot of sense for something like this to be available. Once I received it I was surprised at how small it is but only realised how bad that is when I came to use it. Being so small it meant that the hops are tightly contained and unable to flow as freely in the wort, this also limits the amount of hops you can use.

    Just the Job
    Review by Deanon 01/04/2016
    In my review of the grainfather I mentioned that I purchased it after watching a friend brew an IPA with his. My only concern was that the hops made a mess of his grainfather and was quite a job to clean after the brew. When I ordered my grainfather I ensured that I ordered the hop spider in the hope that this would help in the cleaning. With my previous setup I had used muslin bags to keep the hops together and hoped the spider would be as easy to use. I was delighted with the results, the mesh is perfect to allow flow of wort through to the hops whilst keeping the mess to a minimum. Using the hop spider cut 10 minutes from the cleaning process and was simply a lift out! It is very easy to clean and I will also be using it to dry hop in the future as the hook won't interfere with the seal to my fermenter too much.

    Works very well.
    Review by Rogeron 25/03/2016
    Used this with the Grainfather - the wide mesh makes sure that the hops get good distribution during the boil. Easy to clean up afterwards as all the hops are in one place! Thoroughly recommended.

    Review by Tonyon 20/03/2016
    Though bought direct from GrainFather as they weren't available from brewuk at the time, I recommend getting one of these if you have a GrainFather. Certainly helps with the cleaning process.
