Do you think 3 ounces is near the limit for this strainer? If you had 6 ounces do you think you would have to stop and clean midway? Did you ever try the 400 micron?

Actually... I bought both the 600 and the 400. The 600 does a fine job. It is actually finer than a muslin sack.

I purchased a bulk of muslin sacks from Northern Brewer and the mesh looks very similar.

How are these working for you? Still getting good performance? Would you recommend 600?
