I'm thinking about buying a Blichmann Hop Blocker because my BK is a Blichmann G2. Anyone use one?
I've used one of those stainless mesh tubes, and a spider with a nylon bag. I'm just not sure I am getting the circulation and transfer of hop goodness that I would if I just dropped the hops in the kettle and let them swim free.
I've wanted to avoid this because I have a pump and a plate chiller, and on the occasion when my mind was... well Ok, I had been drinking - I dumped the hops straight in the wort and it took forever to flush the particles out of the plate chiller. The bottom line is I just don't want an infection.
