I use it in my mash tun and it works great. Actually, I have the single tube. I can definitely see using it in a boil kettle.

I've found my Bazooka T to get clogged far more than I care for. I don't think the surface area is adequate for large batches with lots of hop additions. I'd personally recommend a hop stopper instead, particularly if you brew 10 gallon or larger batches.

I tried mine for the first time with a 10 gallong batch and adding pellet hops directly to the boil. I had DISMAL flow rates and had to keep scraping the hops with a spoon from the screen in order to keep it flowing. The next time I have to use pellet hops, I will try it again using a hop bag and see how it goes.

I started out with an Easy Masher and it worked great except that the surface area of the screen was small enough to require brushing it off during wort collection and post boil drain. So I bought two bazookas and connected them with a tee. I solved the problem with gumming up as long as I use a hop bag with pellets. However the outlet is still too small to get a higher flow but I fly sparge so I can match flows. I'm going to stick with this until I get a separate boil pot completed. I guess that's why I gave it a rating of seven. It works well if your system is geared to it but it is not like a falsebottom with 1/2" outlet RIMS.

I would recommend it to anyone looking to get into all grain on a budget.
