I've toyed with things like that and it works a little but ends up being a mess. Just use a muslin bag, big one that lines your mash tun. You can leave it open around the lip of your tun.
I quickly just got a false bottom and never had an issue from then on.

It was £95 all in. If I get any additional import charges I don't know.

I did get a missed delivery card today saying a parcel was attempted delivery. But Im also expecting a packet of belma hops for my next brew so it could be either. Find out tomorrow either way.

have you considered buying a suitably sized sheet of robust stainless steel mesh you can roll into a cylinder and secured with cable ties, and use as a removable frame for suspending a grain bag from.


imho its a cheaper solution that provides best of both worlds a substatial framework to support the grain bag when removing it, and the convenience of a grain bag.
