Filter bags

Post by Mash »

I was looking for some hops this morning with crossmyloof and found these.

Hops bags... Got me thinking these could be better, more convenient, easier and cheaper than a hop spider... and less trub with pellets?

Hang on... what about steeping & nuking JD and filtering in general.
Oak chip bags for ageing...
Double checked - they are safe for boiling.

I am adding a few to my next order.

been using them for a while Mash. When I did the Apple & Corn Brandy,
I put the Sweetcorn in two of them. Saves a lot of mess.

For longevity, my money is on an SS hop spider.
Don't ask which has the bigger carbon footprint.....

It is the way I have gone, but because there was no alternative.

New brewers might think differently.

Let's not get started on carbon footprint.
