It looks like doing it this way you can let it cook longer and get thicker. Has anyone tried this? Does the thickness or the FSG make a big difference?

Do you use "nylon" stockings or buy nylon bags some place. If you buy something to put the seeds in, where do you get it? I googled "nylon bag" and purses came up. TIA
