Default A pictorial of my brew day (5 gal eBIAB)

I am brewing a cream ale (BierMuncher's Cream of 3 Crops recipe) for some BMCfriends, so I thought I’d take some pics to document my eBIAB all grain brewday.

Everything setup and in place for a brew session:



Ingridients:



Adding filtered water with calibrated stirring spoon to 7.25gallons:



Heating water to Strike Temp of 155: I am running through the PID, and one straight in the wall for faster heating.



Basket and voile bag ready to go in:



Dough-In:



Can't forget the Minute Rice:





PID set to Mash Temp of 152 and on cruise control for 90minutes:



Circulating the water every 10-15minutes to maintain temp:

After a 90 minute mash, I turn up the heat to 170 and mash out for 10 minutes.



Once it hits 170, I unplug and remove the PID from the picture since I don't need it to boil.
I setup my basket rig while I am waiting



After 10 minutes, time to remove the basket and grain. I let it sit for 5-10 minutes, then give the grains a squeeze with my grill gloves





Now I have 7.25 gallons of liquor ready to boil.



Hot break scared me this time:



Rolling boil



I forgot to take a pic of the hop addition at 60 minutes, but here is the irish moss and yeast nutrient with 15 to go



And IC chiller is in

I use a small pond pump on my IC. I use tap water for the first 5 gallons and save that ~140 degree water to Oxy Clean everything when I am finished.



First 5 gallons out of chiller





I then add a bag of ice to the sink and recirculate until ~74 or so


In the meantime I am sanitizing everything (already did IC) and re-hydrating my yeast






Once to pitching temp, I drain into bucket and then pour from one bucket to another to aerate





Pitching yeast



And in the closet until fermentation starts, then to the ferm fridge



My GSD rescue helps me wash stuff outside



And finally, taking a OG. Hit 1.040, which is exactly what this recipe calls for.

Nice rig. Which PiD and elements do you use?

I use two 2000w camco elements connected to a simple pair of switches. Works great though I think it would be a fun project to add a PID.

Here's my rig which I used last night.

Here's my rig which I used last night.
I use (2) 1,650 elements. For the PID I used an Auber SYL-2362, 25 Amp SSR (since I am only controlling one element) , heatsink and K-Type thermocouple.

I believe I have right under $100 in the controller. It was money well spent.
