Mesh Infuser Ball
on May 3, 2012
I bought 2 of these as I am an avid homebrewer of beer and planned to use them for dry hopping beer inside kegs.
+ Packaging was adequate and nothing was smashed or bent on deliver
+ seems fairly priced vs. alternatives
+ The screw locking mechanism seems to hold tight. I was worried about this prior to arrival, since not having a traditional locking clasp, maybe they could pop open ruining my sweet nectar and forcing me to painfully filter the entire batch into another keg.
+ size. this is about perfect for dry hopping 0.75oz of pellets. The pellets expand quite a bit so you need the extra room to allow the hops to infuse the aroma better. I have used a different brand w/ clasp locking style that was smaller and it really didn't allow the beer to mix well with the hops so I needed a larger version. This works great in that respect.
- I bought 2 of these and one seems to lock much tighter than the other, but I think I can use a hammer and punch to make the divots slightly larger and thus locking tighter.
Overall, I am happy with the purchase and rate it about 4.5stars and would recommend to another homebrewer.
