Default My BIAB is e-Finished

Finally fished my e-BIAB setup. Not really a DIY'er (lack of tools/motivation) before HBT and knowing zero about electrical systems has made this a long road but its finished and it works! If I can do it with the HBT resources, anyone can do it. Just make sure you do a lot of reading and discussing. Here is the inside/outside of my build and the enclosure that I didnt do enough planning on and ran out of space. Much thanks to the following for blazing the trail:

Nice eBIAB setup and kettle. I like the compact brew stand.

Thanks. I can use it as is with my immersion chiller but I still need to buy hoses, disconnects and a pump if I want to recirculate and use my CCFC. Haven't decided if that's the route I want to go yet.

Based on all the triclamp fittings, budget is probably not a huge issue, but I use one of the topsflow solar pumps on my 5 gallon eBIAB system w/ good results.

Using a plate chiller can reduce chilling time and water significantly vs an immersion chiller. I think the CFC should have similar performance to a plate chiller depending on the size.

I ordered a Chugger already but thanks for the heads up, I might cancel and save a few bucks. The only reason I went with the CCFC is because I really like hoppy beers and I found a good deal on craigslist. Seems like less headache for my beer preference and system size.

you will want to filter hops before pump and chiller or use hop bags.
