2 months agoFilter BagI purchased the filter bag to contain fruit while it fermented in primary. I haven't had a chance to use it yet but it looks like a high quality product that will work well.October 1, 2018Purchased
2 months agoFilters my wort!Ive used this a few times. Strains out wort sludge/hop sludge. I use binder clips (soaked in Star-San) to secure to bucket. I have reused this several times as well - rinse out, soak in PBW 30min, rinse, soak in Star-San. Done. I soak it again in Star-San prior to its next use. No contamination and works like a champ. I would suggest 2 if doing a very hoppy wort, as it will slow when full of sludge.September 20, 2018Purchased
2 months agoThis thing works great. The only reason its not 5 stars is because it catches so much... you have to wait for liquid to drain thru.February 6, 2018Purchased
10 months agoPopped off when pouring from kettle to fermenterI was excited about this product, especially after all of the good reviews. I sanitized it and put it over the 6.5 gal primary, and after the wort chilled began to pour (relatively slowly) the wort in. A few gallons through, it popped off and fell into the fermenter. Fail.April 5, 2017March 11, 2016haven't used it yet buthaven't used it yet but it seems wonderfulJanuary 11, 2016Works very wellOthers have complained about it falling into the bucket so I always secure it with a strap. It catches a lot of trub and the flow rate slows down at the end so you may want to stir it up a little, or scoop out some of the trub as it's building up.March 15, 2014Easy filterI use sanitized plastic laundry clamps to clamp it to the bucket. One filter inside the other. When it begins to fill and sag I pull off the first one, and the second one is clean and finishes the job.February 14, 2014

Browse 3 questions Browse 3 questions and 11 answerscan this be reused?BEST ANSWER: I would seriously avoid using soap to clean it. Any stray soap left will affect taste and carbonation/head retention in the final beer. Soak in hot water [over 140 for twenty minutes kills germs] or use a sanitizing product. These will get stained very quickly from the hops and the darker malt extracts - do not use bleach. Chlorine will weaken the fibers and render a filter useless when the weak fibers break. My original filter is going on its 30th use; I've had one cave in - too much sediment, too much cloggage from repeated use, falls into the fermentation bucket with much hilarity among the audience. >:[ You can use clothes pins or a rubber gasket from an old ferment bucket lid to hold it on.What is the mesh size?BEST ANSWER: I'm not exactly sure of the size. The mesh is pretty fine though. THIS IS NOT FOR BREWING IN A BAG. I only use for straining and it works great for that. When I purchased this I though I was getting a larger bag, but found out it was way to small for "brewing in a bag".do you filter after the boil or at time of bottlingBEST ANSWER: The only time a product like this should be used is before adding yeast and fermentation begins. Avoid splashing after yeast has been added. Cheers.
