Anything better than nut milking bags?

Answered on August 07, 2013

I make fresh almond milk every day, I have a system and it is one of the first things I do every morning. I am having problems maximizing the amount of milk I am getting though. I have used a sieve, they didn't work too well. Cheesecloth that I use for other similar purposes, better but not best. I have different nut/seed milking bags that seem to work best out of all my options but still having problems.

They seem to be hard to get most of the liquid pressed out of. I use my hands and have used wooden spoons, but have broken bags doing both of those methods. I have tested using different amounts but still get the same problem. All the items I need to do this already amounts to a pretty nice amount of $$ each month, so I am trying to keep prices down on the utensils I buy, but would be okay spending money on a good machine that would save time and give a better yield.

Any suggestions?

Both, but mainly the actual fabric. I have tried a few different brands too.

That's the same as what I use now but I bust through them easily and can go through 2-3 of them each week. It is already pretty expensive and I do not want to add another ~$300/year to the cost unless it has added benefits.

Sounds like you need a real metal press : http://nouveauraw.com/raw-techniques/nut-milk-a-new-technique/

Are you breaking through the fabric itself or the seams? If it's the seams, perhaps you could reinforce them with a second row of stitching, or take them somewhere to have that done (it should be pretty inexpensive).

Funny, someone just posted on Facebook that they use paint straining bags instead. $2 each, I believe.
