The bags are of similar quality to the Brew Bag. Very easy to clean and keep the used hops from being transferred into the fermenter.
As a commercial distiller I rely on high-quality products. I now own 10 brew bags and they are key to my success.
I place the bag inside of a hop spider suspended in the center of the brew kettle. All hops are dumped into the hop sock. I then squeeze out the bag once the wort has cooled. I find this removes a majority of the particulates. I then use a smaller hop sock on the discharge line going into the fermenter. Very nice.
Easy to clean
We've used it to great effect for hops in an all-grain boil (make sure to tie a knot on your kettle handle--if you just loop it, the bag might slip in and invalidate your efforts :) --not the fault of the bag) and we also used it for a 1-gal all-grain batch on the stove for recipe testing. It was a quick cleanout for the grain and then we put the hops in during the boil.
Great, sturdy bag. Make sure you don't burn or scorch it though. If you care for it the bag will last.
