    • What are the dimensions of the bag, and the amount of liquid volume it will hold? Seems like a great idea but I can't tell anything about how large the bag is from your description, so naturally I'm concerned it may be very small, in which case I'd have to order several.
    • The bag is 12 inches by 12 inches.

A must have need to make cheese Review by SY

Not good by itself.
Must use in combination with the Butter Muslin for perfection. Very Strong and good filtration. No sign of weakness yet.

Necessary to filter kefir whey from curd... Review by SY

Excellent use, perfect fit for the bag i bought from this web, and good thing I bought it.

I didn't know this was necessary.

I use this for making my kefir whey, and cream cheese. It's the perfect size. I can put a half gallon...or less...into the bag and hang it over a glass bowl to drain. It's clean and easy. You boil it before and then rinse it and boil it to clean it when you are finished. Then hang dry and store!
Just what I needed~!

perfect Review by Valerie

At first I thought the bag was to small but I fit my homemade cream cheese made with 1 gallon of milk perfectly!! It's very thick and didn't leak!! I.thought the ties would break when I hung it up for draining but that didn't happen. Very good product!!!
