Just stopped by to say, brewed on Sunday and still love BIAB. I think about all sorts of upgrades to my equipement - kegging, lagering fridge, fancy this, fancy that, but I have no interest in going to a 3 vessel brew system!!

First brew with big basket. Worked well. Only 59% overall efficiency but that's with no rinse or squeeze which will help. 10.5 gallons to fermentor. 11,000 watts of electric heaters are really nice. 25 gallon pot.

In the Cooking & Pairing subforum under the recipe database and the market. All kinds of good "spent grain" threads.

Brewed up my biggest grain bill so far doing BIAB over the weekend. Made what I consider to be between an IPA and a IIPA. Had a gain bill of almost 16 lbs. with a target OG of around 1.075. Came in at nearly 1.80. Not bad for using a 7.5 gal kettle!

Nice work! Care to share a few details how you managed this? Finished Batch size? Mash and sparge volumes? I'm impressed!

Thanks. I must say, I was a bit impressed with my results as well. I changed things up a bit from my normal brew day. Started out about the same although I mashed in a bit less than 6 gal. of water in my 7.5 gal. kettle instead of my normal 6.5 gal.

I normally do a sparge in a separate 5 gal. kettle filled to about 2.5 gal. But because of the large grain bill, after I sparged in about 2 gal. of water I added that to my 7.5 gal. kettle and put the bag of grains in a bucket with a strainer to drain a bit. I wasn't even close at that point to being where I wanted to be for my pre-boil volume so I decided to heat up another 2 gal. of water to 170F and did a second sparge. I then added the second sparge to my 7.5 gal kettle along with what I collected from what had drained in the bucket and was able to get a pre boil volume at about 7 gal. Everything was normal from that point on.

My recipe did call for a pound of corn sugar at flameout which helped get my OG up as well.

I was kind of nervous as I had no idea how things would turn out and when I saw the hydrometer hit 1.080 I was pleasantly surprised! Hopefully the beer will turn out as good as my results so far. Had to put a blow off tube on it as it was going crazy in the fermenting bucket and as of today, it is still pretty actively fermenting...

Hi,

Lots of good tips in this thread...I read 160 pages of it.

Only one time I saw a reference to "splitting" a brew by brewing it twice- two days in a row. Never heard of it, but seems a good idea.
Day 1- do a full brew, down to pitching yeast in fermenter.
Day 2- full brew, but add to brew from day before.

Of course, you will want a repeatable recipe that you like- and two free days in a row.

So I can do a 10-gallon batch without all the equipment? I plan on going BIAB, but have the Bayou Classic 44 quart stainless stockpot. I should be able to go full amount for water, and

still use one vessel by splitting the recipe in two for 10 gallons, or combine two 5 gallon recipes.
At the end of brewing on day two, it seems that I am adding 1/2 of the wort to 5 gallons of yeast starter that is already conditioned to fermenting the recipe. Like pitching a

huge starter.

On the subject of possibly melting, scorching or burning a bag- it's not like homebrewers never drink a couple homebrews or 20 during a brewing session. If plastic comes in

contact with the pot while being heated, it will melt. I know. I was doing an extract brew and melted part of the bottom of a tub that was completely submerged in water to get the

extract out. Melted a big hole.
I'm going to order a stainless cooling rack for the pot. Then distractions won't have a chance to melt the bag.

It seems that the best bet for a bag is right here through wilserbrewer. Reasonable prices and shipping. He has hop socks, too.

I am essentially starting over. After learning what BIAB actually is I find it fascinatingly simple. I just ordered a couple bags from wilserbrewer. But lots of other stuff to get,
after bottling homebrews we decided to go for kegging, and all the stuff that goes along with it. So we are still a couple of months away from actually getting back to brewing.

Really looking forward to it!
