OK back with pics.

First one shows the drawstring area and top construction. You can see its discolored a bit from the first use

This one shows the stitching and reinforcement around the sides. It's not as beefy as some bags, but it'll do. Also you can see the bag weave. It's a little thicker than a paint strainer bag, meaning it will filter out more of the smaller stuff

Another shot of the drawstring enclosure and surrounding stitching, it's basically folded over and stitched together

The bag in its entirety. Just noticed one corner of the bottom is rounded, while the other is square. Wonder why that is. Black square is a iPhone so you can see the size in perspective. Points if you can name the character on my pajamas

This is the stitching along the bottom. Similar to the stitching along the sides

This is a weave comparison to a paint strainer bag. Paint strainer bag (bottom) seems thinner and doesn't look like it would filter out as much as the MB bag. The weaves are distinctly different and the MB bag feels thicker. Same or similar material though

And finally here's a pic of it in use. I have a 10 gal megapot which is very wide and I had no trouble fitting this around the brim, there was a ton of excess on the edges (width) and from the top to the bottom of the kettle (height).

And 3 different sizes of binder clips will get you crazy high efficiency. Speaking of which I netted a 75% efficiency with this bag according to ibrewmaster

Forgot I was supposed to post a finished beer pic in response to the question on trub/ending clarity. Here's the beer that was in progress from my first pics

Just a little update here, I made a pale ale using this bag with 14.5 lbs of grain, and got some really amazing clarity going into the fermenter after getting wort temp under 80 degrees in 30 minutes. Target OG 1.060, hit it on the dot.

14.5 lbs is no problem for the bag. I will be doing a bigger beer in a couple of weeks and plan to up grain bill to 15 or 16. Bag is holding up very well
