I starting my first mini-mash kit tonight....and I got both large course and fine bags for the grains.

My question is on the bags, the stitching is a little bit frayed here and there on the bags.....will this be a problem? Will I end up having little strands of stitching threads in by beer???

Any solids in the beer will sink to the bottom. When you siphon the beer you will leave it behind.
