    Could someone send me a link to the type of paint strainer bags they use, just not to sure of the material to look for.

    And you just boil the hops right in the bag?

    That looks the same as the ones I get from Ace Hardware. Just make sure the bag doesn't contact the bottom of the kettle during the boil.

    yep...
    I don't think you'd have to worry about cooking the bag inside the boil pot unless you were really wailing with a big burner. Anything sticking out of the top, though will melt if you've got high heat. I use a spring clamp notched into the handle of the pot so that the bag end is up and away from any heat. Also, I have electric now so I don't have to worry about melting bags. :)

    This is how I suspend my paint strainer (hop) bag in my kettle. Works like a charm, I find that I have to squeeze the bag pretty good after the boil. That is 1/4" stainless steel tube that I took from the scrap bin at work. IMG_20181207_1955056.jpg
