The screen I'm using is the simplest and cheapest version you can make. It consists of a piece of 1cm chicken wire with a piece of metal door screen (not fiberglass) on top, held together at the edges with duct tape tape. All these items can be found at a hardware or feed store. Keep your lines of tape as straight and smooth as you can, so they don't trap pulp.
