The #VitaNutMilkBag is not the first nut milk bag I have used but it is the largest measuring 12″ x 10″. This makes it much more versatile than smaller nut milk bags. I really wanted to use a nut milk bag to strain my homemade goat cheese. I use one gallon of milk at a time – and smaller bags just don’t hold enough of the cheese curds to make it worth my time to use them. Cheesecloth doesn’t catch all the cheese curds either. This was the main reason I wanted to try this bag – and it works beautifully.
The bag itself is easy to clean, simply wash in soapy water , rinse and air dry. That’s all there is to it. The bottom of the bag is rounded so you don’t have to worry about food sticking in the corners of the bag. The design of the bag is very smart as is the double stitching.
This bag is also ideal for straining cold coffee, pulp or seed from homemade juice and of course for making nut milk. Keep in mind that dark colored foods or liquids will stain this bag. If this bothers you, I suggest getting a second bag so you can use one for foods or liquids that are dark in color and one for nut milk or light colored liquids.
I have had no trouble with this bag tearing or coming apart at the seams. The mesh is fine – finer than the cheesecloth I use. The bag is large enough that it is easy to handle both before anything is put into it and afterwards when you are squeezing the last amount of liquid out of the contents of the bag.
If you are frequently needing a way to strain nut milk, cold coffee or juice take a look at this bag. I think you will find the design and the size is ideal for most of your needs.
