BIAB 15 Gal Pot Advice
« on: June 11, 2019, 04:13:53 PM »
Hello all

So I have recently come across 2x 15 gal pots with ball valves from a couple of friends who where looking to get rid of them.

I have up to this point been an extract / partial mash brewer on my stove and would like to be able to advance into the all grain / BIAB method when possible out in my garage, freeing space in my basement.

My current equipment consists of
  • 4 gal brew pot with lid
  • copper wort chiller that fits the 4 gal pot nicely
  • 2x 5 gal glass carboys
  • 2x 6.5 gal glass carboys
  • 2x 6 gal brew buckets
  • 1 Coleman 48l cooler (that could be turned into mash tun)

Looking for some advice on what additional equipment other than a propane heater I should be on the look out for and what if any of the equipment I have now can be used for brewing 5 to 10gal BIAB batches.

I see there are multiple options and methods but any opinion or ideas would be great.

Cheers!

I have been thinking of doing a keggle electric system brewing 10 gallon batches.
my grainfather is great for 6 gallon batches. so here is somethings i was looking at

2 pumps for transfers and cooling
a counterflow wort chiller (homemade, copper pipe and garden hose)
a false bottom with a dip tube for mashing (I wasnt going BIAB)

one pump will help to recirculate the mash to maintain the mash temps you might be able to use your wort chiller as a heat exchanger for that. heat one pot to the temp drop the old wort chiller in it and run a hose from the other pot bottom ball valve to the pump with a ball valve on the output to the old chiller from the other side to the lid on the mash pot.
there are other ways too, like your cooler for the mashtun.
hope that helps
