  • I started brewing in college. That was 1994. I brewed off and on, all extract until ~2006. I have been brewing all grain since that time about once a month. I now exclusively use the BIAB method and am in the process of converting a room in my basement to an all electric BIAB brewery!

    samc,Where is your temperature probe in your set-up?I could see there being some problem if it
    is up above the false bottom.Cheers,Jeff

    I will admit I am not familiar enough with my steel gauges to know intuitively, but the Update
    International kettle I have is VERY sturdy. I have an older turkey fryer combo that still

    While I have not yet used my 80qt as electric (still in the process of converting and will do

    curious what i...

    Burglar,Sounds like a picture perfect BIAB efforts (except the chilling screw-up. Your not the
    first to do that!). FWIW 80% is not unheard of with BIAB, but that mostly depends on the crush.
    Since you...

    I agree about the probe location. I assume your receptacles and power cord will be coming in

    way over the top than mine. Makes me seem a bit more tame in comparison. Kal's set up is the
    one I most ...

    Brewing sequences - Mash time, boil time, etc.I do like the idea of a timer to start heating
