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.

    I produce large volume of Greek yogurt. I use the heavy duty straining bags. Easy to clean and sanitize. Perfect size to hang.

  4. I haven't used yet

    The Cheesemaker has great customer service! Mine arrived a few days late but it got here. I can't wait to use it. Though the mesh seems to tightly woven to let any moisture out but I'm sure it will. Note from thecheesemaker: this FDA approved draining bag is great to drain yogurt for Greek yogurt or drain Ricotta to thicken.
