Hop Spiders - Yes or No?

Hop Spider? I’ve been home brewing less than a year and have 10 brews under my belt. I’ve been pouring the hop pellets right into the wort but I am considering adding a hop spider.

Do you use them? Worth the trouble? Any issues with utilization of the hops?


There is a thread open on this right now.


I use a nylon bag hop spider when I make heavily hopped beers (DIPA or NEIPA). I don’t notice any utilization issues.
I ditched my SS hop basket as I didn’t feel it truly boiled in the basket.
