10 months agoWish they made larger press bags.measured by diamiter.Not quite large enough diameter, but was able to sew a added lip around the top to strect the bag over press basket. Worked perfect. Bag is well made and functions grrate. Would recomend but double check diamiter first.October 23, 2018Purchased
11 months agoFavorite straining bagLove the large size. It fits over the rim of my wine press. I just dump all the must into it and tie it up and press. Smaller bags were collapsing into the press. I've used it 4 or 5 times and it seems to be very tough.January 7, 2018Purchased
over 2 years agoI ordered this to try to strain some of the musk off my wine but it didn't work well. The cloth itself is very nice though and I can use it for straining berries.March 8, 2017Purchased

Browse 2 questions Browse 2 questions and 6 answersWhat is the mesh opening size? And is 18 inch the diameter when open?BEST ANSWER: it is 18 when open. I have used this with peaches, cranberries, raisins and pears. I freeze my fruit first so breaks down easy. The holes are small I have not had any skins escape into the must. Easy to tie and punch downWill this work for BIAB?BEST ANSWER: I have no idea... I've been an intermediate level brewer (extracts & adjunct malt/grains) for around 35 years. I only use my coarse mess straining bags to strain out fresh hops (which I prefer) from the wort. Of course fresh hops have been increasing difficult to find. (oy.) To be honest, I think I was the wrong person to ask about this.
