Blichmann Boilermaker Brew Pot Hopblocker
New to the Blichmann Engineering lineup is the patented HopBlocker™boil kettle filtration system!

Loose leaf hops generally plug the coarse screen. Therefore, we highly recommend using large muslin grain bags to avoid plugging.  In addition, you lose a large amount of wort from leaf-hops absorption. Using a bag, you can squeeze most of this out with a neglible affect on hop utilization and significantly easier cleanup. This method does not work for pellet hops because they pass through openings in the muslin bag. And finer mesh screens do not freely allow wort to pass so hop utilization is negatively effected

Blichmann Boilermaker Brew Pot HopBlocker Boil Kettle Pellet Hop Filter
  • Traditional screen filters draw from the bottom of the pot — immediately sucking all pellet hops and fine break material into the screen, where they plug. In Blichmann Engineering's HopBlocker™, preferential flow leaves settled fine break material (hops and trub) undisturbed at the bottom of the pot while draining the majority of the wort through a coarse filter from the top down. When the wort level is just a couple of inches from the bottom of the pot, the fine filter element is then exposed by lifting the shield, and the remainder of the wort is filtered. It's an intuitive design that allows the fine filter to work only on a small portion of the wort, not all of it. The HopBlocker™will filter up to 95 percent of the break material and hops from your wort without plugging. While it is designed specifically to complement Blichmann Engineering's BoilerMaker™pots, the HopBlocker™can be installed in any manufacturer's pot or keg, and instructions are provided.
