Help! I know that someone knows how to do this!! Answered
I am a home brewer and I have attempted several times, time with no success, to do what I'm trying to do. I have a turkey fryer(A.) that I boil my brew in. In the large stock pot I have a perforated basket(B.) that fits inside and essentially I am trying to create a rigid wire mesh screen(C.) the same size as the basket. Kida like this(D.) so that after I boil my wort, I can pull out the basket and let the grains drain and avoid all of the grain in the finish product. Does that make sense? The problem is forming the screen and stitching it together.I know that there is a specific way to form and fold the wire mesh and stitch it together so that there will be no gaps and have a strong bond but I haven't figured it out. This isn't brain surgery but I'm not doing something right. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
