Checked BB&B yesterday. It looks like that bag was on clearance. The new bags have very large holes. If anybody finds the one pictured at the top of this thread, I'd be happy to reimburse you if you are willing to buy it and mail it to me!

I found the one pictured below and it looks interesting. I have a small pot (half batches) that it should fit in. The handles would make it easy to lift. The questions arewhether the "straps" that go around the bag would absorb too much wort and how well the square shape would work.

The mesh is pretty fine, but the voile is probably finer.

Looks like the same bag they have at wal mart for 1.87. In the laundry and plastic tote aisle. Lists materials as 100% polyester.

Was the Walmart one the bag above (square one) or the original bag. A couple of buddies here locally noticed that BBB here in town do not stock these any longer. Luckily I bought a couple when I saw them.

I foolishly bought the more course bag thinking it was the one only to notice when I got home that the holes were huge, enough to let a whole hop through! Well not that big but the husks would certainly enter the boil. I picked the two pack of the square fine mesh ones as well that we're the same fine thread as the original. Oh well, out 12 bucks because of it.

I've heard the square ones drain at the corners which makes it a bit more challenging when draining.

BBB sells a cotton bag for $8 that is 24x34 or something. It shrinks to 22 x whatever after using once.

It works ok, it not too restrictive, but not as good a the older synthetic bag they used to sell. The new synthetic is woven too tightly, and your work will not drain.

Supposedly paint strainer bags will work. (they are cheap at Home Depot).

I just ordered a wilserbrewer bag.

Hmm you saying its probably not the one in my first pic? If not, I'll remove that link. I don't want to steer anyone in the wrong direction

It looks very similar to the one I got. I guess I could save it for 15 more years when my kids are in college!

In anycase I would hate to pay for the shipping just to find out they send the course one.

I just used this model today for a brew in a 15 gallon kettle and it worked beautifully. My only complaint would be the solid bottom, which made it a little tough to drain.
