I have about 6 stovetop BIAB sessions done in the past few weeks and I realized today I might have messed up all of them, In order to keep the bag off of the bottom I used a baker's cooling rack (instead of a ss colander). The round cooling rack has some chrome content in it and I am not sure if this is safe for brewing at temps of 170+F. Anyone have any ideas? I did remove the racks prior to reaching the boil temp for the wort.

I don't think you have anything to worry about. Chromium is used in stainless steel and does not react with water. I'd use it.

wow, great thread. I wish I had seen this before I ordered my 44 qt kettle. I could have ordered it with the basket for $30 more and didn't think I would need it. Separately it is about $75.

I do have one that came with my 34 qt kettle. Do you guys think it would be big enough to use the 34 qt basket in the 44 qt kettle??

This would be for ~5 gallon batches.

its not needed.. just a nice to have item. I've been doing BIAB for the last year (23 batches so far) and haven't used a basket (I have one that is currently holding my wireless router off the ground). Also I have only had one batch where I wished I had a pulley to help lift the bag. That was a pumpkin ale which was VERY slow draining even with 1lb of rice hulls added.

Stir continuously while heating and you should be fine. Of course this is if you are using a voile bag. Paint strainer bags might melt.

I use an enameled plate (not really a plate but I don't know what to call it) that can be heated in the oven for the bottom of my brew kettle and it looks brand new after many uses. It takes the heat and raises the bag about 1" off the bottom.

Wait, I thought rice hulls were only needed when mashing in a cooler to prevent a stuck sparge. Is that correct? May be a dumb question but I an doing my first BIAB this weekend so wanted to see what use rice hulls are really for. Thanks
