Default Brew-In-A-Basket?

I don't know if anyone has ever made any real progress building these... I love the idea of basically using a giant mesh coffee filter...

I saw this company that sells custom stainless mesh baskets of any size and shape you need...

http://anysizebasket.com/design.asp#details

for my pot it came out to..

Basket Pricing
Part #: TMT-180RND180-C30S
Dimensions: Diameter: 18" Height: 18"
Handle: C-Swinging Round Loop Handle, Handle Height=1/2 Basket Width

Seems pricey but its the closest I've seen to a working version... they are said to hold 60lbs hanging.

Looks like you picked the right mesh size, or at least what I would pick as well.

These guys...

http://www.sterlingfilter.com/round.html

also seem to stock an 18" x 18" round basket in the same mesh.

I fired off an email to see what the costs are... may be less if they are on the shelf...

I got an email back from the stainless basket company...

"Jeff,
Our 304 stainless steel basket would work just fine for the brew application. Some question below.

· Quantity of baskets

· Are you going to be putting a lid on the pot with the basket inside?

· Weight of grains"

I'm curious to see where this goes!

Interesting. Keep us posted.

I've thought about constructing such a thing in a fine ss mesh to fit a keggle.

I use a perforated steamer basket and a voile bag. The basket gives me a solid shape that's easy to move and control. The voile provides the clean filter. Total was about $96.

I was tired of the bag being a shapeless hot mess, but I wasn't ready to put $200+ into a basket. I'm happy with my compromise.
