    With BIAB it's certainly doable if you have cold water to chill with and a good burner/eletric
    system to heat/boil the wort quickly.Nice, I hadn't even considered biab. I was thinking no

    You can get your brew day under 5 hours if you try. I am currently at 6 hours but I think 3 is

    3/4 inlet chugger.I haven't even used it yet. Are you thinking 3/4 inlet and 1/2 out would pump

    I think the 1/25hp motor and impeller design are so weak that most people gate back the output
