Hey Timos, Just reading your post. In order, "LOL," "Glad to hear that," "Wheels can be tricky," "Yes, I did mean two BIAB's simultaneously," and finally, "Steel profiles are good but if you have a family member in the industry then, no worries!" Great to hear you are thinking wheels and metal. I w...

i also stitched a hop bag while making the BIAB sack. But, i stopped using it in my last few brews. I figure, what's the point? I whirlpool before transferring to my cube and that, when I'm ready to transfer to my fermenter, i pore the wort through a pasta strainer lined with the above mentioned sa...

LOL PP! In my case, I can make a whole lot of money by selling the very well experienced holesaw ;) I hope that's the last time I gonna use it... hopfully. 1. Having the gas bottle immediately under the burner may cause the gas bottle to get too hot. Probably not but it would definitely be something...

Thanks for the comments guys. That's a great idea which I'll add to the brew-rig for sure. Very handy.

*update*
So I've added a few small things, as an edition to your advices.


More updates to come. Hope to hear more voices an opinions (:
Thanks for the responders.

BIAB Brew Rig

Hey everyone, how are you these days? As I mentioned on my last post (the 'how to...' one.. yeah, the one which PP got depressed ;) ) I'm planning a brew-rig for BIAB. So here's the details: The brew rig is planned to be as simple as possible, just like BIAB, a pot, a bag and a burner (and a brew-ri...

Hello JB how are you? When trying to compare between plastic to carboy fermentors, there are the main issues such as: 1. Cleanning - as plastic bucket are wayyyy easier to clean rather than the carboys. 2. Odors - Plastic buckets tend to to hold the smell of previous batch. 3. Scratches - in plastic...

That hose? http://lh4.ggpht.com/_OvIsgMxS8QY/S1JBPQ4s0YI/AAAAAAAAADI/nI9STrPAufY/s720/P1000857.JPG Is that the thermometer we were talking about? http://lh4.ggpht.com/_OvIsgMxS8QY/S1JAsxSSl7I/AAAAAAAAACk/FJjSUs2_iTk/s640/P1000840.JPG Does it floats? That's a great solution if so. Where did you get i...

I'm using a 34L carboy and a 25L plastic foodgrade fermentors for 20L wort.
I do like the carboy more, as it's scratch free and no oxygen diffusion, altough the carboy's harder to sanitize and handle.
Both do the job well, but I was wondering whether or not the head space is crucial.

The best way getting rid of odors etc. is water.
Well, it's working great for me. I'm cleaning bottles stinks with cigarette, fermentors being left overnight..
Just let fresh water flow non-stop for few minutes.
Works fine for me.

PP, that's a one hell of a replay :) You really convinced me not to drill an hole for the tap, also, neither the thermometer nor anything else. "Keep it simple" he sais, and also right, I guess. As I also won't use a pump (for the same reasons you've mentiond above) I think I officially decide - no ...

Well PP, no doubt you made me re-think my intentions. The 37lt (not 50lt apparently) stainless-steel pot will arrive next week, and now I'm confused :roll: Hmm.. You suggest to keep with my 'old fashion' equipment, which means - an handy thermometer and a nice siphon to do the job? Can you please ex...

Hi Redlegger, thanks for the quick respond. Well, I meant a stainless pot, just noticed I wrote non-steel (must be interesting boilling with a non-steel pot). Similar to the pot on the high-left corner: http://www.chefdepot.co.il/files/Products/pots%20&%20frying%20pans%20300X300/stainless%20pots%20+...
