Default grain bag alternative

I bought some cheese cloth but the holes look way too big. Can I use a muslin bag that has a tighter weave or does it have to be as loose as the grain bags?

Damn man, I wish I had time to work.

Muslin bags are fine; Most extract kits will come with them if they have specialty grains. Should work just fine for you.
