I like this really well - it's sort of a bigger version. Love it.http://www.stainlessbrewing.com/Dry-Hopper-with-twist-cap_p_155.html

Love it.http://www.stainlessbrewing.com/Dry-Hopper-with-twist-cap_p_155.htmlI wish there was one for a better bottle. I guess a scaled down version wouldn't hold much really. I'll just continue to go commando.
Twisting my arm... I will bump one of these up ahead of a chugger pump. That puts it after a mill which I am in drastic need of.
Any idea what the diameter of that thing is? Or, more precisely what I'm interested in, the width of the keg mouth?
I do 2.5 gallon batches in better bottles and the Tea ball thing intrigues me. Do you find they are as effective as the 1 gallon strainer bags, or better? I've been reading that some like to sink the bag and others don't.
I'm still trying to wrap my head around how you guys can fit all your dry hops into contraptions like these. If I tried to dry hop in tea balls, it would look like the world's largest string of Ben-Wa balls when I pull them out of the fermenter.
