Whole hops and the hopblocker
« on: April 17, 2011, 11:04:37 pm »
Does anyone have experience using whole hops and the cylindrical Blichmann hopblocker?  I've heard it's prone to clogging with loose whole hops.  Any custom retrofit ideas? I'm not completely opposed to hopsocks but prefer to leave them free.
