Its a good sack. My wife loves it. Best sack she has ever held. Better than those metal ones that are just too hot to hold.
I used the hop sock to contain hops in my boil. For small amounts of hops I think this is a great product. Fine mesh and good construction will keep out hop particles leaving nice clear wort. My potential problem is when using a larger amount of hops. I used a 2 oz late addition and while the hops were contained they also seemed to be packed pretty tightly in the hop sock and not allowing sufficient contact in my beer. I like the hops to be more loosely contained. Perhaps it won’t be a problem, but it wasn’t what I was looking for.
These bags have already improved my home brewing. I use them not only for dry-hopping, but also to help filter out large grain pieces as well as hops during my vorlauf step and my transfer from mash tun to fermenter.
I had hesitated to buy this for some time, instead using a hop bag from someone else because this didn't have a drawstring. How would the hops not get out into the keg? I finally saw the obvious solution in a review - tie a knot in the top of the bag. Rex, you may want to add that in the description for the dummies like me.
This works better than the competition bag because of the fine mesh and the longer size increases surface area. The quality stitching makes it easier to clean.
Works great, the fine mesh keeps hops in the bag for a cleaner beer.
