I would give a really good yank on it to make sure it's still strong...if it holds, go with it.
Also, I don't know about your walmart, but the one here has a fabric section...voille is $2.50/yd

The local Walmart has not restocked their voille in the fabric section for over a month. The local fabric store carries a style of voillie but it is very loose fitting and not very strong. Thanks for the reply.

Good idea. I had looked there once and all they had were curtains that had been dyed colors other than white so I was not sure of how safe the color dye process would be. they may have just plain white now back in stock.

Hey mick let me know if the lowes has them in stock. My wife got a sewing machine and I'm going to attempt to suggest this project once things get a little calmer around the house. Thanks!

Had an interesting revelation this last week, and wanted to share with you all...
i'm doing 1.5 Gallon BIABs and after looking jealously at all of the nifty pictures of people's cooler mash tun conversions... i thought... instead of struggling with keeping my temps up, and messing with my mash on the stovetop, why not use a cooler?

So, my idea, that worked flawlessly, to share with you all.

my brew kettle fits inside my coleman cooler. so, i placed a bath towel in the bottom of the cooler, then poured 3 gallons of 170* water into the cooler, then placed my kettle in it after doughing in my grains.

the result? a 90 minute mash of an AG wheat that stayed 154* the entire time. hit my gravity nearly exactly.
here's a few pics.
the brew kettle in the cooler, sparging, the boil, and RDWHAHB.

Now that is a great idea sir. Is there a cooler big enough to hold my keggle? Lol

I do the exact same thing. I happen to have a monster 84 qt Coleman cooler someone had given us for Christmas one year. Too big to mash directly in (it takes a full 2 gallons to even reach the drain spigot), but my 6.5 gallon kettle fits nicely. Warm up the cooler, drop in the pot with bag (lid and all) and mash away. MAY drop a degree during a 75 minute mash.

I did my first small batch BIAB yesterday in a 5 gallon pot, I actually just heated my oven up slightly then put the pot in the oven and it held 156-151 over 90 minutes with stirring every 15 mins.
