I received my custom BIAB basket from Chad and I had a chance to brew with it last week. It worked great and I hit 76% mash efficiency which is what I was aiming for. I used it with the Brew Boss recirculating eBIAB system and the basket did a great job of filtering grain particle out of the wort.

Thanks to marcb for the pics and measurements from earlier.

After only using mine a few times I am going to post it up for sale I think. I whirlpool and am more patient now letting it settle out before going into the fermenter. Plus I find it hard to clean well. If anyone is interested PM me, I will make a formal listing sometime this week

So here is a question and/or idea...

My BK is about 17.5 inches, thought I would have a basket with the 300 micron about 16 inches in diameter and about 1/2 as deep as the kettle, in my mind this allows maximum exposure to boiling wort and allows whirlpooling as well

Anyway just a few thoughts

I only use a 6" but notice it subdues boiling activity within the screen. It also clogs with cold break if I pump through it while chilling or hot break is forming.

^ This.
The boil will surge around the perimeter of the basket causing a lot of splashing. This was reported in the thread already. Boiling is mostly a convection process, and the screen breaks that action.

Alright, I looked through 69 pages on here so far and haven't really found my answer so I will just ask now. Has anyone used this on a keggle? Mine is about 16" to the dip tube from the opening of the keggle. Would I be able to lay a pipe through the handles and hang it form there or did he make a modified version to fit on the keggles? I saw on his site the one that hangs there but I don't care for that. I didn't mind the one that had the hook to it that I saw as a prototype. Anyone have one they use on their keggle system?
