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

Picked up this bag last week based on this thread and used Friday for a Blue Moon clone (only 10 lb.), worked great. Love this thing.

Love this bag - fits perfectly around my 15g heavy duty kettle from morebeer. Thanks for posting re: weights - I've had it up to ~12, but good to know it will handle more (I've got a barleywine a'comin as well).

Fits a 15 gallon Blichmann Boilermaker perfectly.

I think Ill have to swing by MoreBeer and grab one. I have been using curtain voile for my BIAB and it seems to work perfectly. This might be a better "fit" for my 11 gallon pot. Its hard to drape a whole curtain into a pot and pour grain into it haha. Just brewed today with my method using the voile and it works great. The convenience of the MB bag might be worth a few bucks though.

I am enjoying this bag. In fact I bought 2, for a total of around $15 including shipping. Can't beat that.

One tip is that I noticed those black metal clamps that folks use to hold the bag in place on the rim, well they begin to tear the bag. I now use bungee cord and it works much better.

Can't beat the price. You could buy and see if you like it and if not, not have to worry too much because in the end you didn't spend that much

Good tip. I switched to the bungee too, very happy with it.

Side note, MoreBeer.com shared this thread on their Facebook page today. Awesome.

If you can add a RIMS tube with a march pump to circulate you'll get into the 90s on your efficiency. Borrowed a tube on a few batches and haven't gone back since. Went from the mid 60s and 70s to high 80s and 90s on efficiency. Have fun. Any problems with the larger bag coming unthreaded? No issues with the 24x24 but the 29x29 seems a bit less in quality
