Say hello to our new addition, HSSOS1. It's a rather large in-line hop-seed strainer suitable for a brewhouse 10 times the size of ours. Cunningly, I'm going to fill it with fresh hops and pump beer through it, completely reversing it's design use.

Hops contain an extraordinary amount of flavour compounds and by using them in different ways we extract different attributes. Tomorrow I'll brew a barley wine and look to get some peppery spicy notes by using the HSSOS1.

Well it's better than working for a living.

Note to competition - this was the last one and getting one fabricated will cost more than you're prepared to pay. You can borrow this one though if you like.
