I need some help!

In the last issue of BYO there was an article about an in-line dry hops filter and I want to figure out how to make it. The guys from Aussie Home Brewer were the feature and the in-line hop filter consisted of some kind of in-line boat gas filter and some garden hose.

The gist of the article was that this was a $10 solution to dry hopping. What I was not able to figure out was how it worked. The article made it sound like it was something like this hop-back I found, but according to these guys, the in-line hop filter could just be dropped in a keg or in a fermentor.

If you saw this or have any information, I would appreciate some feedback and I will gladly post how I do with making one of these.

That is the most honest you've ever been in the title of a post.

Thanks for the response but that's a Randall and though that is a TOTALLY bad ass device, I am looking for something that keeps the hops from my "dry hopping" out of my brew.

This is what I saw in BYO:

I was a little off on the concept, it's more like a filter than a hopback or anything like that. I think I might still give it a try, though it's not the "be all and end all" to my issue of dry hopping without sacrificing yield.

Thanks for the quick response to a brewer in need! I was jonesing to build something as I just found out we may need to postpone our brew weekend!!!

Jon - How did the Titans do last week? I missed that?

Of course you know about this...

Oops...those links I added were to hopbacks and infusers.

Not filters for filtering bad :-(
