i do BIAB and sparge. i just heat 2 gallons of water in a second pot, and after the mash is done, i pull the bag out and dunk it in the 2 gallons. Stir, wait 10 minutes, then dump those contents into the main kettle.

i think it's pretty common to do this.

thanks Jag!

I know it depends on the grain bill, but around how much water do you start with when you do sparge as well?

I start with about 5.5 gallons. Come to think of it, my sparge is actually 2.5 gallons b/c i lose 1 gal to grain and i shoot to end up with 7 gallons preboil.

If I ever get around to finishing my ferm chamber, the derrick will be my next project for a BIAB vanilla porter.

Seven,

quick question, what are the real dimensions of that 44-quart Bayou Classic model B144 stainless steel perforated basket that you use? I've been looking around on the net and I keep finding 2 different measurements for the same basket. Is it 13.5" deep by 11" wide? If so that would be perfect for my kettle, thanks

Unfortunately I'm working with a 12" opening on the top of my newly converted kegel, so the only basket I can find that fits is this one: http://www.amazon.com/Bayou-Classic-.../dp/B00062VZOW

downside is it's only 30 qts. do you think it can adequately do the job for an AG BIAB setup? thanks again

Why bother with the basket? It's not needed. The bag won't burn or melt as long as you stir while heating
