Does anyone know how many pounds of steeping grains a 10" stainless steel strainer will hold? I have the kind with the wooden handle, like the one Midwest sells for $12.99.
I use mine to strain out steeping grains as I pour into my brew kettle. The batches I've made up to this point have only called for one pound of grains but now I'm looking at batches that call for 2.25 - 2.5 lbs. I would like to use the strainer only and not also a strainer bag, provided the grains don't overflow into the brew kettle. I think the strainer will hold up to 2.5 lbs but I'd like confirmation from someone who knows from experience.
