Im planning a recirculating eBIAB rig to build in the (hopefully near) future, let's all see some pictures with a short description!


Sorry if this has already been done, I searched didn't find a dedicated thread...

I am electric and use a 15.5 gal Keggle.
My bag is big enough to fold over the outside of the keg. I also have a false bottom screen over my heating elements to keep the bag and the weight off of the element.
I don't have a pump yet but would really like to get one for recirculation to help spread the heat more evenly through out the mash. right now I do it with an old Old Crow jug, pulling from the bottom and pouring back on top. It works, but a pump would be sweet.
I have a pulley system above the keg for lifting the grains/draining the bag. Also hang my hops bag from the pulley during boil.
My exhaust is several small fans in my basement window and works great.
Hope this helps, any questions, feel free to ask.

Nice! I'm going to be putting my element in my 10 gallon Blichmann. I'll be using the small inline pump from greatbreweh.com.

That's a very nice setup! I love it! Keep 'em comin boys!

How do you have your recirculation line running back into the kettle? I don't like the look of hoses draped around so I'm planning on making something permanent for the line to run back into the kettle, have a QD on the output of my pump so I can disconnect the line and connect one to run through a chiller or to the fermenter.

It would be great to have all the eBIAB setups in one thread with links to the build thread. If you guys with eBIAB rigs have threads, post a pic and a link! Save some searching. I'm getting stuff together to build mine. . . would love to see more!
