No, just all the water at once then let the bag drain by lifting out with a basket.

Here's my eBiaB Keggle. I've got about 15 batches of beer on it so far and am really starting to get into stride.

Awesome looking setup! Mind sharing what all the switches are for?

Top left is a keyed switch to prevent unauthorized brewing , middle-left controls a contactor to break the supply to the heating element, middle-middle switches between PID and PWM (my cheap Chinese PID doesn't have a manual mode and buying the Auber would have been more cost effective...), and the middle-right turns on/off the alarm. The bottom-middle is a trim pot knob to control the duty cycle of the PWM with a panel light on either side for power on and element on.

Hmmm what a coincidence. I've been wanting an eBiab setup where I can switch between the PID (mash) to PWM (boil). I know, I know, most PIDs have a manual mode but if prefer a knob. I like your setup!

Here is my 2.5 gallon kit:

It uses a 1500 watt element; I just set it on the stove so I can use the vent hood.

I may be way out of line here, and I apologize if i am, but if your doing small (2.5 gallon) batches, why on earth would you spend the money to convert to electric if your gonna set it on the stovetop anyway?

I may be out of line here, but I thought it would be nice to be able to brew wherever I want. My crummy stove doesn't have a PID either

It's my pilot system so I like to keep things easy and precise.

I've always kept a quote near to me:

"Brewing is only as complicated as you make it"

So yes, I understand I could go about it with less fuss. For that matter, I could just do extract.

Your questioning/mocking of my approach is analogous to saying:

"Not to be a jerk"

It's never a good look.

PS - in case you didn't know what thread this is, it's the "Show us your eBIAB rig" thread. "e" stands for electronic in case you didn't pay attention or understand the nomenclature.
