If you're tired of using cheese cloth to drain or strain your curds, yogurt, Ricotta or other, you'll find our custom made Draining & Straining Bags easy to use and clean. A must for every cheesemaker. Strong and durable. These reusable bags are perfect for making cheese at home. Use these Draining/Straining Bags to replace traditional cheese cloth in the cheesemaking process. These reusable cheesecloth bags are easy to use as well as easy to clean. Whether you are straining your curds for Chevre, straining whey for ricotta, draining Greek yogurt or filtering out coffee grounds for cold brew coffee, these bags are essential for the domestic cheesemaker. 

Includes drawstring to cinch bag and hang for draining. In conjunction with a cheese making kit, these custom made bags made of food grade nylon are multi-use: straining whey for Ricotta, straining Chèvre curd, straining mascarpone, sour cream, Fromage Blanc and cream cheese. A sturdy drawstring allows you to easily hang and allow the cheese curds or whey to drain. Easily cleaned by rinsing with warm/hot water, then sanitize with dairy sanitizer.  and can be used over and over again. If you find regular cheese cloth a challenge, these bags are a great alternative. For easier use keep the seam on the outside when draining.

Cleaning the cheese and yogurt strainer bag is simple, too. After each use, remove residue by soaking the bag in warm or hot water. Then sanitize the bag by rinsing in cold water with a food-grade dairy sanitizer to kill lingering bacteria or microbes that may still be present.

    Fantastic

    Posted by Ernest on 20th Aug 2015

    On the first use these saved a lot of time over flat sheets of cheesecloth that for once I didn't feel rushed during the process. Sturdy construction and cleans up easily. My cheese drained more evenly and completely in 30 minutes with this bag than two hours in a colander lined with butter muslin. This bag will fit over a standard 5 gallon pail, and the drawstring will pull tight holding the contents up off the bottom of the pail.

    This bag is big, which is good. So far I've only used it to strain yogurt but it's wonderful. Can't wait to try it on cheese.
