    Just letting folks know not to waste their money on this product.
    I purchased one from my LHBS and used it a few weeks ago brewing my Pliny The Elder.
    The spider has 800 micron mesh and id say 90% of the hop matter ended up in my boiler and not contained in the spider.
    Spoke to Mangrove Jacks and all they had to say was sell it then.

    May be ok if you only use leaf hops but for pellets its a waste of space

    Their customer relations sounds spot on! Look on eBay for a 100 micron filter sock used in aquariums to line it...I use one for dry hopping and get no residue from pellets..make sure it is the nylon mesh and not the felt type.

    Cheers
