Ordered mine yesterday!

Quick question, is the draw-string strong enough to hold the bag full of grain?

The drawstring is quite strong, I believe the poly braid rope (1/8") that I am currently using is 216 lb break strength, so it should be plenty strong IMO and IME.

I did a thread describing various techniques to attach the ratchet pulley to a bag, FWIW I usually use a short piece or cord wrapped tight around the upper portion of the BIAB bag...see link below.

Additionally, you can also wrap the excess drawstring around the top of the gathered bag and tie it tight as a lifting point. I did this this past weekend as I was brewing away from home and didn't have my usual bag of tricks by my side...

I saw that thread, but the pictures were blocked at work, now it all makes sense, thanks

Wilserbrew is the man. I ordered the triple play combo and received a quadruple play instead. I left a comment on paypal requesting the boiling hop bag rather than the dry hop bag as I couldn't tell by the triple play description which was included. That rascal mailed me both of them! The grain bag looks superb, the boiling bag and dry hop bag are of the same quality, and the pulley system looks perfect. I'll test all this stuff out within the next couple of weeks and report back. Really though wilserbrew has customer service down to perfection, I wouldn't hesitate to order from him again. can't wait to try out the bonus dry hop bag! Thanks wilserbrew !

I agree vellum. Used my triple play this passed weekend on a wheat beer. Everything worked great
