Posted in thread: Help w/ BIAB Basket Mesh Sizing (400v600v800) on 08-14-2015 at 10:24 PM
Think of the raising of the basket as a batch sparge of a set grainbed. I don't get any flour.

I suggest you brew with the basket and see before making any changes. There is a vast
improvement over the bag because the basket is rigid, I.e. it doesn't flap around. Grain bed
seems to set and can ...

Just stick with an all mesh basket. It doesn't disturb as much as the bag because the walls
don't move around. I just pull up my basket carefully and hang it on the edge of the basket
with the hooks a...

Anybody here RIMS with their BIAB setup and and use a Basket? I'm thinking something that I can

The basket should take up as much of the pot as possible, minimizing dead space. I have a short

arborfab.com) to replace the bag and your system will be similar to mine - no problems with
stuck recirc - w...
Posted in thread: Strange yeast behavior. Is US-05 getting weird on you? on 02-17-2015 at 03:31 AM
I too am having this problem. No appreciable krausen, moderate bubbling that seems to have
slowed down only 2.5 days after pitching commenced. Never seen this with US05. Bumped up the
temp a little to...

Only real difference is compactness I think. It's a slick piece of engineering and fun for
people to clone. I use recirculating biab with a stainless mesh basket. Works great but there
are more pieces...

Anybody every had contamination from rehydrated dry yeast ? I usually give a cup a quick boil
in the microwave, let it cool to about 35C then rehydrate. I've had contaminated beers while
using this me...

Lovely system. I do something similar. But I use a stainless biab basket (with feet) from Ann
