Thought I'd post a link to this site. I hadn't run across it before, They are a biodiesel suppl but they also make a bunch of different  stainless steel filters for brewing. Thought everyone might find it interesting and maybe useful.
Cheers.

Some interesting products in there. Particularly the corny keg dry hoppers. Looks like you could get a lot of hops in there.
Heck yeah I blog about homebrewing: Brain Sparging on Brewing

I have two very similar looking corny keg stainless dry hoppers (one 10 inch and one 18 inch) that I bought from Stainless Brewing.  They are awesome.

I also have a 4 inch diameter stainless hop spider that I bought from Utah biodiesel, but I have mixed feelings about its usefulness for that purpose.  Currently, I use it as a filter between the mash tun and the boil kettle, and it works well in that capacity.

I have their 18" and love it. Great for coffee beans, oak chips. etc., too. One of my best brewing purchases in a while. Great product.

Looks awesome, just bought one!

So this would just be used for extracting the hops and leaving less residue in the beer?

Yeah, for physically separating hops from beer, but more. As anyone who brews dry hopped beers knows, delicate hop aromas can have their aromatic life dramatically shortened by sloppy splashing into your keg, bottling bucket, etc. -  in short, by contact with air .  My approach is that, by waiting until the beer clears after primary (2-3 weeks), then racking to a purged keg before adding this dry hop canister, I have given the dry hops a basically CO2-rich environment to give off their amazing aromas - with no escape, and with no need to rack again. I carb IPAs and APAs @ room temp for a week while I wait for the dry hopped goodness to dissolve and make friendly, then chill and enjoy.

EDIT  -  As I said before, the canister also doubles as a vessel for coffee beans, cocoa nibs, fruit, oak chips/cubes, etc. I add any of these flavorings into the canister, into the keg, tasting regularly (of course !), and then I can pull the canister when the flavor is exactly where I want it. No guesswork.

Been using these for the past year.  No more hop bags or loose hops in the kettle. They are the best for hop and spice additions. I slip two into my kettle.  One for FWH and the second for any later hop pellets or whole hops or spice additions.  I have use them when I add piloncillo sugars.  Instead of bashing the cones into small chunks, I pitch the cone into the basket and it quickly dissolves.  No mess.  The seams are welded and they have stood the test of hard use.  I recommend them highly.
