    • is this bag the same as a nut bag?
    • These bags come in 3 different sizes and have a slightly thicker fabric. Both bags would work well for making cheese or storing items. The nut milk bag is ideal for straining nut milks such as almond milk.

    • Once you strain your (milk) keifer with the bag. Can you leave the keifer grains in the bag and just add more milk so you don't have to wash the bag every day?
    • We do not recommend keeping grains in the bags for culturing. The risk of mold is too high.

    • 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!
    • 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.
      For easy straining of your water kefir grains, try our fine mesh strainers: http://www.culturesforhealth.com/plastic-nylon-strainer.html

    • Hi. What size bag would be appropriate to strain 1 quart of yogurt? 2 quarts? Thanks.
    • 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.
