Anyone interested in making their own bag for BIAB go to Walmart and get the Mainstays voile window panel, measures 84"X59". I made one for my 13 gallon pot and have plenty leftover to make another for a 10 gallon, less than $5 for the panel. So if you're lucky enough to have a wife or mom with a sewing machine that knows how to use it you can save a few bucks. Also if you cut it right you can get one bag with a seam or whatever you call it already sewn in for a drawstring.

Unfortunately I do not have or do not know anyone with a sewing machine so making a bag is out... I've been searching but really can't find a definitive answer about if this bag: http://http://www.brewandgrow.com/brew/equipment/stirring-straining/jumbo-straining-coarse-bag.html

My brother actually has one of these so I can borrow at anytime therefore I won't have to buy one.
Is the mesh too coarse do you think? I just don't want too many floaters in the wort. Sorry if this has been answered a million times before but I will somehow feel better about using it if the answer is directed towards me.
