Well, around 2008-2009 I was really posting a ton here. Now I wait for others to post, otherwise I stare at my own posts forever
I buy 1 yard x 1 yard plain 100% cotton, no dyes or anything added from wal*mart. The cloth isn't bleached I believe, and a natural color. I use them to wrap up my koji and thought about using them to steam with. I suppose I could boil them in a solution of sodium bicarbonate to help remove all traces of odor and flavor contributions. I am looking into material to make strain bags. I would like to find some felt and some cotton bags.
I ordered some fine mesh bags from Northern Brewer, should be here by Wednesday, I hope. I can then press my black rice sake!
It's gonna stain my bags purple...
