I get the mesh bags from two places- the homebrew store and lately from Wilserbrew, here on the forum. http://biabbags.webs.com/
I get the large bags that line my entire fermenter, and the put the frozen (thawing) chokecherries in there, and tie them up to contain them.
I use pectic enzyme in the must, but otherwise do not use finings. I'm not really opposed to them, except that I want a vegetarian-friendly wine and most finings come from animal products (or plastic type of finings, ick!).
