Confirming that I've had a similar experience with my WilserBrewer bag. I've been using one for the last 10-12 batches and the bag is still in great condition. No grain particles make it into the wort. Mine isn't as tight around the lip of the kettle as in your pictures, I have to use a bungee cord to keep it snug, but that isn't an issue at all. A hop bag was included in my order out of a random act of kindness or error. I finally used it a month ago to dry hop in the keg, worked great. I am very happy with my purchase and couldn't imagine doing BIAB using anything else.

We make and sell lots of bags to satisfied keggle users. I advocate making the top opening as large as possible for BIAB.

My feedback from customers is that it takes a little finesse, but even very large grain bills can be extracted out of undersized keggle openings. Perhaps like childbirth, idk :)

I do BIAB in a keggle. I had enlarged the hole to about 11.75" diameter, and have no problem hoisting out grain with Wilserbrewer's bags. If the grain bill is large, it requires a few minutes of work with paddles to make the bag skinnier. The key is to use a ratchet pulley. Hoist up the bag until it gets a little stuck, work the sides with paddles, hoist up a few more clicks, work it some more, etc.

I did an imperial stout with a 24 lb. grain bill. It took me about 4 or 5 minutes to get the bag out. (Pic below.) The bag needs time to drain anyway, so those minutes weren't lost.

One other thing...make sure the rim of the cutout on the keggle has been sanded smooth, with no burrs.

I have 4 of WilserBrewer BIAB bags (2 grain and 2 hop) and they work great.
