When I do grains I use one of these




Sliding screen for ghetto windows bought at a local store for 7.99 -- kicking myself in the ass cuz i saw one at walmart for 5.99! Just spread it out over your sink and pour out your grains little by little, smear them around, get as much water off as you can.  When I cook up 20 quarts worth of jars, it's usually 5 batches of "straining" each batch lasting about 30 minutes (basically i sift the grain around, let it sit 10 mins, sift it around, let it sit 10 more, etc)... sure it's tedious, but it seems to do the trick, and I'm pretty sure it will get rid of your problem.  Load straight into jars for PC off the screen! :smile:

Take care

Here is another method for grain that some may find interesting...

These are Jelly bags used in making Jams and Jellies. Available most places that carry canning supplies. I think these ones cost around $5.00 for two of them, a little pricey, but they last a VERY long time :smile:



I use a cheap plastic 2cup measuring cup full of grain in each bag, then tie it off with an elastic band. Notice how much grain is in the bags at this point.

 

Simmer for an hour and when they are done remove them with some tongs directly to a place where you can rinse them with cold water. When the water coming off the bag feels cool. It's time to let them drain 45 - 60 min seems to work for me. The grain should have expanded quite a bit.

   

The thing I like the best about this method is less mess and its easy to drain the grain.
When the grain is done draining you may notice the bottom of the bag of grain is a little to moist... a gentle squeeze of the bag will remove any excess.

If I'm doing a lot of grain as spawn for my Ports, I just take the rinsed bags and run them through the washing machine spin cycle for about 10 seconds... that works too :laugh:

if you can't find them as jelly bags, they have the same thing in paint departments as paint strainer bags. they work great for h poo too.

Good Call... I'll look into that too.
Perhaps they will have larger sizes.  :laugh:
