Default BIAB grain bags

Is there anywhere I can buy a grain bag for BIAB? It seems that most people are making the bags themselves & that's not really an option for me. I don't have access to a sewing machine & have no clue how to run one if I did. Looking for a bag for a 5g kettle (12.5"dia X 10"deep) & making 3g batches.

Hopefully someone can point me where I can buy one, kegs are getting low, the 3g indoor rig isn't finished & its too cold in the garage to use the 10g rig.

I believe Home depot sells a 5 gallon size for straining paint. For a nice big one you may have to find a seamstress??

Brewmaster's Warehouse sells them. I got the large one and it fits very nicely into a 5 gallon kettle. It is finer than the paint strainer bag and does a better job in my experience.

The one I got at Home Depot fit maybe 7 lbs of grain. I tried 9 I think, and it was way to tight- I got horrible efficiency. I'd get one that's meant for this (they're cheap), or I know some people make them themselves.
Some stuff I've made: Odell's 90 Shilling Clone, Abbey Weiss Pottsville Common, Simple Mead, Dry Dock Apricot Blonde Clone, Rye IPA, Maibock, Scrapper's Quaffable Irish Red, Short Sleep Blueberry Ale, Lazy Magnolia Pecan Nut Brown Ale Clone, Graff, Apfelwein, Cascades Orange Pale, Orfy's Mild Ale, Vagabond Gingered Ale
