Filter Bags and Straining Bags

The home winemakers friend! Makes it easy to get the fruit off the pulp.

Also useful for straining hops for beer making.

They are reusable. Red wine will stain them!

Most people use the coarse bag and it's the easiest for most home brew.

Small straining bags are best for a gallon of wine, if you're doing a lot the bigger ones might be easier.

Small Coarse Straining Bag

Small Coarse straining bag. 28 x 35 Cm when folded flat

Perfect for a gallon of fruit wine. Takes about 2 kg of fermented fruit.

Useful for straining hops or grain as well.

Coarse mesh is usually great for most uses, it will strain fruit without blocking up.

It's best to use it as a straining bag and not squeeze it too much as you can get a lot of fine pulp residue that just settles out in the demi-john later, you get most of the flavour out the fruit without squeezing

It takes ages for fruit pulp to filter through this, use the coarse one first unless you don't mind waiting!

If you squeeze the fruit too much through these bags you can get a lot of fine pulp settling out.

The best way to sterilise all these bags is to just boil them for a minute.
