I like my HB BIAB electric system and have used it for over a year. I found if I use a squeeze type clamp on the pot rim, I can tilt the internal grain basket to drain without danger of it splashing back in. Tricky to get it up and add the clamp solo but easy with one more pair of hands.

I recently added a second stage to my internal cooler and used it this week to brew an Ardley Brown Ale. Post boil temps got below 80 in under 30 minutes and that is outside in south Florida in August.

Enjoy!

It'll be way easier to move the pot than the exhaust hood. Put the pot on a wheeled cart of some sort and move it over a couple of feet under the pulley, then slide it back under the hood for the boil.

To me anything worth doing is always worth overdoing so I went with mounting the hood on a swivel mount and connecting it with flex duct to the wall vent. Details for the build can be found in an article I published here this week titled Indoor Brewing - Clearing The Air, its working perfectly to solve the issue.

I brewed my first 10 gallon batch using the High Gravity eBIAB system this Saturday and it was a joy to use. Everything worked out exactly as I had planned and I was so happy to finally have answers to the questions that came up throughout the design phase.

The biggest concern was lifting the 60 something pounds of wet grains out of the kettle but using the grain hoist turned out to be a great idea. I brewed solo this first time because I wanted to stay focused on all the new processes involved and I was able to hoist the wet grains out of the wort and then tie them off to the wall cleat as they drained. To make things even better the garbage trucks here use a mechanical lift to empty the trash cans so now grain disposal is one less huge headache too.

Glad to hear your brewing went well on the new system. I recently moved too, so having to wait to close on the house before wiring back up my electrical system. Back to the old propane BIAB style for the time being!

Just a thought, I trade my grain with local chicken farmers for fresh eggs. They get happy, drunk chickens and I get fresh farm raised eggs! I had chickens at my old place, but here the quarters are a little closer and the neighbors a little nosier.
