This is the original amazing nut milk bag designed by Elaina love. These are the highest quality nut milk bags you will find anywhere. The amazing nut milk bag is a large, oval-shaped, draw-string bag made of a very sturdy nylon so you can use it over and over again to make your own nut milk, juice or sprouts. This works better than cheesecloth because it does not let pulp through and does not stretch out in the same way that organic materials do. It is better than a mesh screen because you can squeeze it. Maximizing your yield and minimizing your preparation time. The bag will hold up to 4 cups at one time. Imagine never having to buy a non-recyclable boxed "milk" again. Instead, make your own raw "milk" of any nut or seed you like! why buy plastic packages of expensive sprouts when you can sprout your own seeds, grains and legumes? If you don't feel like cleaning up after your juicer or just don't have a juicer, then you can use a blender and strain the pulp through this amazing bag as well! a nut milk recipe is included. You can click here to get a free almond bread recipe for the almond pulp that is leftover from making the milk. Get Elaina's pure joy kitchen book 2 for many more tasty scones, pastries, big fat focaccia bread and wedding cake that also include the almond pulp. Try it and you will be delighted! get one for all of your culinary needs: 1 for green juice, 1 for nut milks and 1 for sprouting.

Update 12/11/13: I have now purchased a second nut bag which has much finer straining capabilities though not the convenient shape of this bag. Since fine straining is more important than shape, I won't be purchasing this particular bag again. For those that are interested my new bag is "#1 Rated Nut Milk Bag" sold by Zimtal.
I make 1 1/2 quarts of water kefir every 2 or 3 days so the nuisance factor was multiplied regularly. My next fabric was a piece of fine doubleknit fabric, like T-shirt material I had left over from a sewing project. Now that took a mighty long time to filter the liquid so I began an internet search.
I read all the reviews I could find, especially because I thought I needed a smaller bag, say 4" X 5" but I went ahead and bought the Nut-Milk Bag, thinking maybe if it failed to work for my project I might try making my own nut milks, so I would keep it anyway.
What a pleasure to find the right bag. I place it inside-out (so any fruit particles or smaller kefir grains don't get trapped in the seam line) into a 3-Cup glass measuring cup. Then it's easy to pour the cup full, with most of the pitcher-full. Some of the large kefir crystals (they grow from grains when they are small and new to crystals with use) fall into the bag with the liquid.
I grasp the bag, lifting it to the top of the cup and wedging it between my right palm and the handle. Then it's easy to pour the liquid into bottles without getting any grains into it. Then I pour the rest of the kefir into the large cup and repeat the process, except this time all of the crystals have poured into the bag.
At times I use a tiny bulk tea bag for a final filter, if my liquid is too cloudy for my taste (the grains and crystals don't have a fine taste at all). This bag is well made, with well finished seam and the top drawstring closure works perfectly. Rinsing the bag under running hot water, both right-side and inside out, is so easy. Then the bag dries in no time and it still looks like new, after 3 months of use.
When I am making a large batch of loose leaf tea, I use this as a big tea bag. I make hair gel from flax seeds (Google it!) and use this to strain out the seeds. I use it to strain out the vegetables from my homemade vegetable broth. I rinse my rice in it. I have even put it in the dishwasher a few times to clean it and it has survived. I have not, however, been very impressed with it when making nut milks! Despite straining multiple times with the bag, there is still a considerable amount of grit left in the milk. Perhaps having two of these bags inside one another would do the trick, but I haven't experimented with it in that way yet.
Still, I use this bag very often and have definitely gotten my money's worth, but I have not been able to successfully use it for what I bought it for. If you are interested in an easy-to-clean alternative to a mesh strainer, I recommend this. It will strain better than a mesh strainer, but still not quite good enough for a grit-free nut milk.
