Poly bags are processed at temperatures that are high enough to neutralize any nasty organisms that may be hanging around. Once they're in the roll, there's not much of a way for them to get contaminated to the point where they can outstrip your yeast.

I've been thinking about this technique for use in my carboys as well. It would sure make harvesting yeast and cleaning up a lot easier.

Is there any concern of oxidation using this setup? I'm in need of a similar solution and am debating the best course of action. I can get 15- or 20-gallon HDPE drums for $22-25 but I don't know how a liner would work with that setup.

if you are really concerned about food grade try these,I use them in 30 gallon steel drums to collect sap for maple syrup reason being you cant find 10 mil garbage bags... Never though about using one in the primary

I just checked on the box to see if thickness was listed. Not much in regards to specifications other than the size and extrastrong. I have noticed other LHBS in my area use the same method for primary.
Works well for me.

Cheers

I am glad someone resurrected this thread. I was looking for it a while ago and it would have saved me some money buying a second Ale Pail for wine....I might have to give this a go with a cheap beer just to try it out.

In case it helps anyone, I was looking for suitable bags at a couple grocery stores and found something that is food safe by design but expensive. Reynolds Oven Bags "Turkey Size" was 19x23 1/2 inch and just barely fit my taller form factor Ale Pail with an inch left over to fold over the rim. This $2.69 box only came with two. Maybe something bigger or cheaper could be found.

Personally I'd be willing to try some that don't mention food safe but I couldn't tell what may or may not be so far in the grocery store.

This is a great idea. I am definately gonna give this a try but I think I will spray the liner down with some starzan...it's cheap and would make me feel better
