The bag is as well built as the regular brew bags, but fine enough for producing cold brew coffee. Any finer and you would be waiting all day for it to drain. It filters really well. My only thought for improvement would be a variant that can be tied shut so it can be immersed or closed in an airtight container for long steeps. Since it's a dual purpose bag, I understand why it is constructed the way it is. Great product regardless.
Thanks for the feedback - we make them with a drawstring closure as well.

Brewbag for Sake Lees
I used the COB810 when straining sake lees and it was perfect! This bag puts every other straining method to shame. I stretched it over a 10 gallong fermentor and left if covered for days, getting very clear sake. Glad I found the site and picked one up.

Very durable filter and no sediment
I use 5 lbs coffee and 3 gallons of water in the Toddy commercial bucket. The paper filters are expensive and the usual nylon filters are not fine enough. This is a very sturdy bag, of high quality. I did not get any sedement. There's no comparison to any other bag I've used. I think it will last for years.

Used for Cold Brewed Coffee
I ordered on Jan 20th, shipped out Jan 24th and received Jan 26th. I ordered the 63-micron filter COB1215 - 50-60 Quart for cold brew and found it to be sturdy in construction but lacking in efficiency for small batches or big, there was still significant sediment. I could have accomplished the same with my hop bags for a greatly reduced cost. I tried to find a solution for the problem with them but they couldn't offer any more advice. I bought a stainless steel filter sold by another company as the price is only around double but durability/longevity is better, had this one tear a small hole, it was my fault that it tore(got snagged on brew kettle) but now I can't use it. I like their idea but just didn’t fit my needs.
We offer one product for cold-brewed coffee that is 63 micron. Typical coffee filtration is 50 micron. After testing various micron rated fabrics the 63 micron was chosen by coffee brewers due to its flow rate and sediment residue. We're not sure what we could have offered that might have helped but we hope you find the solution you're looking for.

Great for cold brew
I got one of these for cold brewing 2 to 5 gallon batches of coffee. It works perfectly - very little clean up required after cold brewing. Just hoist the bag above water level and let drain for 10 minutes. You can squeeze the bag if desired. I wasn't worried about getting every last drop out, so I just let it drain. Enjoy. Cheers.
