Hop Filters, Mash Bags and Caddy Baskets


Want to contain those hops in your brew kettle? One way is to use a hop filter. Dealing with trying to strain your wort can be a tedious task and we so have different products to help you contain and filter your hops and grains. False bottoms, bazooka screens, hop filters, steeping bags and grain baskets.

Hop bags are convenient for most home brewers, especially if they are using small brew kettles. Hop/mash bags are cheaper than other methods of filtering hops. They are usually made from muslin cloth, but some are also made from nylon mesh. They do fairly well in filtering the mash from the liquid. The disadvantage in using them, however, is that home brewers may experience a decrease in hop utilization. Using the hop bag may be challenging for some home brewers, so to improve the utilization of hops, using pellet hops instead of whole hops may improve the flavour of the beer by about 10%.

When using hop bags, make sure that you tie and secure the bag safely otherwise it can open during the boiling process and you will end up with a pile of residue all over the brew kettle. Moreover, choosing a hop bag that is made from thin material to let the character of the hop transfer to the wort is important.

If you have a big brew pot and a large grain bill you may be inclined to want to use a mash caddy basket. These baskets can easily hold anywhere from 10 - 30 lbs of grain.
