Hop Stoppers

Hop Stopper Standard and XL sizes

Extract every last drop of wort, save time, and maximize hop flavour! Stop using inefficient bags, tea balls, or hop spiders in your boil kettle as they limit hop utilization - let your hops roam free! The Hop Stopper 2.0 maximizes hop and hot/cold break filtration while saving time. No after boil recirculation required, no settling time required, no whirlpool required. Start draining immediately after the boil to better lock in those bright late addition hop flavours. (Watch the videos and read The case against whirlpooling). Works equally well with intensely hop-heavy IPAs, DIPAs, and NEIPAs with pounds of hops, to delicate light lagers with only an ounce or two. Pair with the Hop Stopper 2.0 Keg Edition for the best filtering in the keg - no more clogged dip tubes or junk in your glass! 

Hop Stoppers are available for most kettles and fittings types (NPT, TC, friction fit, etc.) as well as corny serving kegs. The most popular options are listed below.

Not sure what's right for you or need a custom solution? Contact us with your kettle brand, size, and type of fitting. Please note that the Hop Stopper is meant for boiling only. It is not designed for all-in-one setups where the mash would be recirculated through the Hop Stopper as the screen will clog before the grain bed has a chance to do its filtering job. When designing your no-compromise brewery we recommend an open source 3-kettle design as it maximizes flexibility.

See the individual order pages for FAQs, reviews, and videos of the Hop Stopper in action.
