I use this (probably not enough time to worry about making one before you brew):


The bag is the paint strainer bags from Home Depot.

ive read about those DIY hop spiders before.  they seem to be very basic to build.  all you need is a PVC collar, 3 lag bolts, some nuts to go on it, and a hose clamp.  definatly worth doing if you can pull it off.

okay, okay, I will try to take some photos although all the reading I have done, I don't remember which step that is  ;)

Sunday, I still need to go grab a couple last minute things today and my son has is Spring Formal this afternoon so brewing will be sometime after church tomorrow...
