Nut Milk Bags?

a

Does anyone know where to purchase a nut milk bag in the East Bay, for $4-$15? I want to make almond milk, do some sprouting, and possibly juices as well. I am incorporating raw foods into my diet and I want to find a good quality bag. I think either nylon or hemp, I am open to suggestions and any experience people have had?! If you know of good resources for affordable Raw Foods in the East Bay, that would be a bonus, thanks.

      I don't know the East Bay, but perhaps someone else can suggest an Asian restaurant supply store? Nut milk bags are used to make soy milk.

        A similar thing is used in brewing. Oak Barrel in Berkeley carries them.

          Thanks chefj, I couldn't find it on their website, but called 510-849-0400. They are called Grain Bags or Brewing Grain Bags and cary them in 2 sizes. 8"x9" or 24"x24", $4.50 or $5.95. I also found people suggesting Reusable Paint Strainer Bags, available at your local hardware, but boil them before first use.
          I made some almond milk, without a bag, just some cheese cloth and a strainer, which worked as well, really tasty too! I think the bags make it easier if you plan to make a lot of nut milk, frequently.
          Online there are resources for mail order, and they also come in Hemp.

            Would muslin work?
