Product Description

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. Try one of each and decide which is best for your cheese making application.

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.

  1. Top-notch material

    Posted by Patricia H Masters on 3rd Sep 2019

    A very well made draining tool. Doesn't fray and so easy to wash. Great for making soft cheeses.

  2. Mesh bags for draining / straining ehey from cheese curds

    Posted by kmf on 6th Aug 2019

    Mesh staining bags are very useful for draining whey from cheese curds. The bags are quick & easy to wash and dry, and then reuse. The curd is easily retained in the mesh bag while the whey is drained off. Thank you.
