7/19/2014 – Is the bag 3'high by 2' across or the other way around. I plan to use a 10 Gal Igloo drink cooler which is 2' tall and without a little more height I'm afraid the bag top will simply drop into the cooler.ThanksMB
Response From Homebrew Heaven: They are 3' high, and 2' wide. Should work just fine!

4/26/2009 – Can I use this bag to filter my sake, and if so what is the best way of use.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: I confess that I haven't actually used this product for sake making, but is should certainly strain away the rice from the liquid. It is a fairly fine mesh. I wouldn't call it a filter, however. If there is some cloudiness to the liquid or sake, it will still be there.I would do the fermentation with the rice, and then pour the mixture . . .
1/26/2008 – I live about an hour (if traffic is good) from the address on your website. Do you have an actual store or is everything here based solely online?

10/14/2007 – 1. What is the size of the holes in the mesh bags? I am looking for 1/16 "2. Do you have a bag that will fit a cider press barrel that is 17" inside diameter and 14" tall?3. Do your bags have a circular bottom of are they simply two pieces of rectangular cloth sewn together?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: That is ABOUT the size of the mesh, but if this is critical, I suggest you call us on 425-355-8865. It is after hours now, and I can't go measure it.This bag should work well for your press. It is 36" tall and 24" wide.It does NOT have a cicular bottom, however. It is two rectangular cloths sewn together.
9/8/2007 – Can these bags be cleaned and reused? (I'm refering to any of your nylon mesh bags) If so, what is the best way to clean them?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes, they normally ARE cleaned and re-used. Just wash in soapy water, rinse. Before using again, just sanitize in iodophor.
1/28/2007 – Can I use this jumbo straining bag to put in my brew pot during the steeping process to hold all of the grains for an all-grain brew and then to sparge just pull it up above the water and pour the sparging water through the grains so that the water just runs in with the rest of the water in the pot to continue from there? or is there a different . . .
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes, this simple method can be used, but there are drawbacks you should be aware of.First, your mash water/grains will be VERY hot, say 150 deg F, which is much hotter than you can pick up with your bare hands. It will also be very heavy, so you need plan accordingly.Second, once the grain is in the straining bag, stirring is not easy . . .
3/15/2005 – I would like to filter hops, fruit etc. while I siphon into my fermenter. Would any of your screens work well when attached to a siphon hose? Do you have any other suggestions outside of a tapped kettle connected to a bazooka screen?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: The real problem will be getting the stuff thru your siphon hose. If you are willing to pour the wort:In our Brewing Accessories category we have a variety of straining bags that might well serve this purpose.There are also funnels with straining screens that can be used.
8/23/2004 – Will these bags work on a cider press hopper?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes, that is what they are designed for (in the press basket).
8/19/2003 – Would this bag be appropriate for containing fruit during the primary fermentation of fruit wine? Thanks
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes, a very good choice!
