It's pretty fine. Just like the ones I bought specifically made for BIAB. Its a polyester voile material. Like curtain sheers

Many of us use paint strainer bags, I doubt it is less food grade than that!

Also, check to see if the seams are double stitched. It's be a shame to have them split when lifting the bag. How did it go? subscribed.

Very interested to hear if these work/are strong enough. I've decided that if I go 10g. setup it will likely be single-vessel BIAB no-sparge...so I'd like to know if these bags will work.
