4.8 / 5.0166 ReviewsGreat bag but requires a bit of dexterityThe bag is great! It's very durable, washes easily, and keeps particles out of the wort very effectively. A minimal amount of particles from pellet hops make it through, but it's little enough that I've always dumped the entire contents of the brew kettle into the fermenter bucket._x000D__x000D_The size of the bag is perfect for all (reasonable) pellet-hop additions. However, if you use leaf hops, it holds up to about 2oz comfortably. It would be best to move up to the next size for heavier leaf-hop use._x000D__x000D_The main drawback of the bag for me is the challenge of getting later hop additions into it. You put the first one into a dry bag but subsequent additions need to be added to a piping hot wet bag. I use tongs to open the bag and dump in later additions, holding just the edge of the bag, after it cools a tad. It requires some dexterity to avoid missing the bag with some of the addition. When adding leaf hops, I ended up asking for help from my wife; it was hard to put a lot of loose hops into the little opening. You could improve on my experience by using extra bags for later additions or lifting the bag out for a bit (to let it cool).December 17, 2013good valueI have been brewing monthly for 2 years and using the same Nylon bag for 1.5 years. Just bought a second one only because the first one is badly discolored. I use the muslin bag foe my grains and put inside the nylon bag to keep grain particles from leeching into the wort. Have also used with Hop drops.Works Great.January 17, 2013Every Brewer Needs a FewI love using these bags with both my grain and hop additions. These bags make it easy to add hop pellets and not have to worry about them leaking out. Cleaning them is a breeze, but sometimes some hop particles get stuck in where the string goes through but with a little work you can get them out. I always have a few of these bags ready to make brewing easier.January 24, 2014Sturdy Hop bagI use this for adding my hops in the boil. It will last at least 20 batches before i replace the bag. The bag will float until the hops get soaking for a bit. I use pellet hops.January 25, 2013Excellent PurchaseThis nylon bag is a must have. After my first brew using the muslin bag, I vowed I would never use one again. It leaked so much sediment into the beer, that I figured I would try this bag out. What a huge difference. I've used it a few times now and it's dishwasher safe as well. Awesome purchase!May 21, 2013Money saver over time.I have brewed at least 15 batches using this bag to steep my specialty grains with great success. It cleans easily. One seam did start to unravel but was easily fixed. I would have spent twice the cost in muslin bags and have nothing to show for it. Love it.October 29, 2012Great Bag!After to adding hops directly to my boil on my first brew, I decided to purchase this bag. I boiled my hops in this bag during my second brew. The bag worked great. It kept the hops residue out of the wort and the bag was super easy to clean. I will be ordering another one of these bags with my next purchase from Midwest.July 26, 2013GreatThis bag has held up to the test of time. I have used this boil bag for countless brew sessions and although it may be a little green, it still works great. I have a couple for all my hop additions and just use the ties to secure it to my kettle handle. Hasn't burned, melted, or smelled foul at all. I also use for dry hopping and cut down on sediment. Get a few.December 8, 2012Great hop bagI wasn't so sure that the grain bags that come with the beer kits would do very well with the hops, which disintegrate as soon as they hit the boiling water, so I picked up one of these nylon bags. It works great. I've used it for 2 kits and it has no signs of failing me any time soon. I will always keep one of these on hand for hopping.August 1, 2013Much better than grain bagI have only brewed two batches so far but after I used this boil bag, I won't go back to the included grain bag. It is so much easier to rinse out and reuse the included socks. Plus i didn't seem to get as many particles in the beer after the grains and hops. The bag did get stained after use but that doesn't matter to me._x000D__x000D_I would definitely recommend this to a friend....or a complete stranger :)December 11, 2012

Browse 1 question Browse 1 question and 5 answersCan I use this nylon bag for a chicken and then simmer for hours for soup? I don't make beer, so I have no way to compare the two processes. Thanks!BEST ANSWER: First the joke. I don't boil chickens so I have no way to compare...totally kidding but that's funny right...right...anyway. I have boiled it for over 90 minutes at a rolling boil so no issues there. They are very sturdy so I don't think that would be issue either but I don't think you will fit much chicken in it. I would use one of the bigger sizes. Not sure if that helps but make sure you have a beer when your cooking!
