Brew bag came on time and in good condition. Used it to brew my first all grain beer I followed the directions and had little problems.
One star short of perfect is because I think it should be just a little shorter for a keggle. Because the opening narrows you can’t pull it over the lip of the keggle enough to keep the bag off the bottom. Thus limiting your ability to heat the keggle after you’ve put the bag and grains into it. Otherwise It was great.
I got my first brew bag a month ago. I've made 3 11 gallon batches having 23% cornmeal since. Normally if I'd used that on my 3V system I'd have used a few lbs of rice hulls. Not only did I NOT need rice hulls, but I followed Rex's advice he's posted and adjusted my 3 roller mill to .020. I ended up with 93% efficiency, a big step up from mid 80's. Needless to say, I had to re-calculate the hops.
The wort drained just as Rex said it would. No stoppage at all from such a high adjunct beer.
The best part......my normal brew day was 8 hours. With the brew bag it was just under 4, with everything cleaned and put away. Now our time is worth something, even if this is a hobby. Even if my efficiency went down, I'd be ok with mid 70's given that it didn't take 45 minutes to clean my mash kettle and RIMS, but it actually went up. I ground the grain to dust. I knew I was going to have a hot mess, but I didn't. Well played Rex.
Btw, I squeezed it like it owed me money. No excess tannins. pH was 5.2 in all 3 batches.
So now I have 3 keggles that I'm using a bit differently. I got a second brew bag and just make 22 gallons each time.
Thanks Rex and brew bag. Totally converted.
Just used for the first time the other day and it worked well for me
got the new bag and pulley still working on my keg have to put in drain port write back when done.
