Made of organic cotton and available in three sizes: 8″x10″, 10″x12″, and 12″x15″. Perfect for straining kefir, yogurt, or soft cheese varieties. Also great for use with produce and grains. Bring these to the store instead of using plastic bags. Each cotton bag contains its own tare weight tag.
Made in the USA. Unbleached. High quality and meant to be washed and reused many times.
Q. Can these bags be used in place of cheesecloth used for ricotta?
Q. Are these bags reusable? If so, what is the best way to wash them?
A. Yes, the bags are reusable. Hand or machine wash, mild detergent, rinse well and most importantly, no bleach.
Q. Hi. What size bag would be appropriate to strain 1 quart of yogurt? 2 quarts? Thanks.
A. The small size bag will work fine for 1 quart of yogurt. For 2 quarts, you will find the medium will work, but the large size gives more room for drawing the bag closed for hanging.
Q. Hi, if I am just starting out with water kefir grains, what size of a bag should I use? Also, would it be fine to keep the grains in the bag without washing it if I kept using the grains in the cycle recommended? Thanks for your help!
A. We no longer recommend keeping water kefir grains in a bag due to risk of mold. If you do decide to use a bag, we strongly encourage diligent sanitation. Also, be sure the bag remains fully submerged in the sugar water for the entire brewing period.
