Some say it's voodoo bunk and not needed, other's claim it helps w/ efficiency...YMMV.

Here ya go, folks in this thread w/ more smarts on the subject than me...you can decide if your a believer, I'm not.

Does anyone have any idea where to get a custom BIAB ? I have a 20 gallon Kettle 16.5" tall and 20.5" radius.
Thanks,

I know where I'm getting my custom BIAB. I got a package of voile from Walmart (I was hemming and hawing over the types of voile with the other old ladies in the curtain department). I'm sitting down with my grandmother's sewing machine and my brew kettle and having at it. After all I'm gonna brew with it, not wear it around town. We'll see how it goes.

Thanks,
I was checking around and noticed that you can make some w/out even sewing.. just make a big circle, and clip excess to the rim of the pot with binder clips... i was wondering if taht would work as I don't sew and dont have a machine, and it looks like some people have done it.

Sure trainwreck, you can BIAB w/ a big piece of voile in a circle, for a pot 20 X 16.5 you would need a very large piece, say almost 60" IMO. To line the pot this way you end up w/ a lot of folds and pulling the bag might be unwieldy w/ a pot that size. Just my opinion and experience, a bag w/ a drawstring will make it easier and lessen the chance of dumping the mash all about, that being said, It can be done.

Another option is to use two or three 5 gallon paint strainer bags tied off and placed in the kettle, another cheap method that will work. People have also sewed bags by hand FWIW, good luck whatever you choose.

Using "Wilserbrewer" to make my bag. Seems like the safer route to go I have a 20 gallon and its a pretty oddly sized pot. I plan to do some big imperials with it... I've only done extract kits before this. So hopefully all goes well.
do most of you get kits or make your own recipes? or modify kits?

This will work. I also wrap bungee corks around the top of my kettle to help with this process. You can buy a voile curtain that will be plenty big enough at Walmart for about $5.
