A propane turkey fryer type burner is cheap as is a 44qt pot with a strainer basket. I do biab
beers up to 9%abv this way and they come out fantastic. A Rubbermaid tub and some frozen
bottles of water...
Posted in thread: Paint Strainer Bag for BIAB: Are these food grade/heat resistance on 04-23-2013 at 12:03 AM
I've done several batches with the Home Depot paint strainer bags with the elastic top. All my

It's a new hydrometer about a month old never been dropped so I'm almost positive it's not my

I use a smaller 3 gallon water jug from Walmart for my 2.5 gallon batches and not one problem
