Looks like a great setup, wish someone in the UK would import this kit at a decent price. That sort of burner is just not available here and the alternatives we can buy from outdoor shops etc are normally only rated to around 5Kw output (about 17000 btu). Ordering from overstock.com or similar makes them really pricey.

Not strictly on topic, but as I've not yet got round to doing a BIAB on my own, I'm curious as to what teaks up all the space? The pot in the pic is 60qt or 15 gallon volume but if this is going to be close, what's going on in the other 8.5 or 9 gallon worth of space (allowing for evaporation to end up with 5gal of wort)?
I thought I had a good understanding of the theory of how BIAB worked (i've seen it done once or twice) but what am I missing?
Edit: +1 on a digital with probe, have just ordered a couple more to dedicate to my cheese making equipment as I find them so useful in brewing and I keep all the equipment separate.
