Just noticed on the FB Pico forum an old thread has been resurrected, with someone publishing a 3d mould to produce a silicone hop holder.

Small brewery duty relief may change

Seems some craft microbreweries may suffer, the largest will of course benefit.

Re: Brewzilla Bottom Filter Plate doesn't fit Grainfather
