Re-usable many times. This strong bag is reinforced all around with polyester webbing. This is stitched into the mesh around the top, down the sides and along the bottom of the bag to give excellent lifting strength. The dimensions of the bag have been determined so that they fit a Buffalo 40 Litre boiler commonly used by home brewers in the UK. The bag would similarly fit other pots of suitable dimensions. The 40L Buffalo is 38cm diameter and 37cm deep. The bag itself is 62cm (40cm dia) wide and 72cm deep so there is plenty to fold over the top of the pot, and down past the handles.
Two strong handles are provided for lifting the bag out of the wort. Ideally one would have a hook position above the boiler and hang the bag on that to allow it to drain.
The bag is strong enough to take a large grain bill when wet, which could easily be 15Kgs
I'm a long time home brewer and have developed this bag myself through experimentation over dozens of brews. I use one of these bags myself for a wide range of beers. The quality of the materials and of the stitching is superb.
This listing is for the bag only. The boiler is only shown to illustrate how it fits.
Everything is done in the boiler. You mash and boil in the same vessel and there is no sparge. You mash in the pre-boil volume of water, allowing for evaporation and grain loss. When mashing is finished, you remove the bag, let it drain for a few minutes, then set it aside and bring the wort to a boil.
