Great bag but requires a bit of dexterity
The 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).

good value
I 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.

Every Brewer Needs a Few
I 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.

Sturdy Hop bag
I 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.

Only holds 2 lbs
I bought two of these unknowing of how many i would need for a 6 gal batch... As it turns out one bag will hold about 2.5 lbs of grain... Wish that little gem of info would have been in the item description.

Excellent Purchase
This 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!

Good for chocolate malt.
Roasted specialty malts (like chocolate) seem to have more sediment than unroasted. It strains these very well._x000D__x000D_Easy to clean, just flip it inside out and rinse.

Good quality bag
This is a good bag. I've used it a few times already and it cleans easily and the stitching seems to be good quality. I expect this bag to last a long time.

Easy to clean and reuse
A good size bag with plenty of room to fit grains for steeping. Easy to flip inside out and clean for reuse.

Way better than a muslin bag
You can steep grains, or us this as a hops bag. The mesh is fine enough to keep in all the sediment. I've used the same bag for a year without it showing signs of wear. I like this a lot more than the muslin bags the kits give you.

Can 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!
A shopper on Apr 13, 2017
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!
