That'll work fine...it just depends on what you're straining out. If you have brewed a basic beer, with no adjuncts like fruit peels or seed, or stuff like that, and you have let it settle, there's really little that you have to worry about straining. Everything should have fallen into the trube, and of you have your racking cane above the it, then you should be okay.riored4v said:what about taking a piece of a muslin bag? would that work as well?
i have some of the nylon ones that i'll be using and the muslin ones are just going to be sitting around. figured i might be able to use one of these since my racking cane is plastic and it appears the SS filter above isn't recommended for plastic.
