Awesome Idea! I may have to get a basket and give this a try.

Here is the stainless BIAB that I came up with and had Chad build, his build quality is excellent by the way. Once my heat exchanger and pump is complete, I will recirculate the wort similar to a RIMS system. Hopefully it works like I think it should.

I won't boil in this. I will transfer to my boil kettle. My PID allows up to 8 temp settings so I can do a step mash.

What are you using for a heat exchanger and pump?

So the basket is simply replacing a false bottom?

I'm building a heater pipe out of stainless pipe and a hot water heater element. I will use my PID to control the mash temps. I bought a Chugger SS pump and it should be here by Friday. The brew basket replace the false bottom or a bag in BIAB. Looking forward to next weekend!

Please post some pictures if you get a chance next weekend. Sounds like an interesting idea.
