I’m planning a new brewery after starting with a Grainfather, which I’ve outgrown.
I have a lot of thirsty friends and like the idea of BIAB since it’s sounds like it would be a lot less hastle and time than a 3 vessel system or larger all in one system.
So I’m thinking of a 100L BIAB build using induction hobs!
I'll be brewing undercover outside. In an area I'm having wired by an electrition next week.
The build itself will be a 200L kettle with analogue temp gauge and tap, probably from BrewBuilder.co.uk which I plan on insulating.
Heat will be provided by 2x 3000kw Buffalo Induction hobs. I like the idea of induction for efficiency, easy temp control for mashing and easy cleaning of the kettle afterwards.
I have a an electric hoist for the grainbasket (also from BB).
I plan on doing full volume mashing with no sparge, so I predict I'll be boiling 100L of liquid in the 200L pot.
I’ll be going the no chill route.
Fermenting will be done in fridges. I have purchased a 60L Allrounder and plan on getting another one soon.
I may get a pump later to make filling the fermenters easier.
Is this a white elephant? Should I just buy a 65L Brewzilla?
Im concerned that the 6kw will not boil the water fast enough, but I could get a 3rd hob if it was too slow.
I guess my biggest concern is that there is something about the BIAB process that I haven’t considered or something that will cause me problems at this size?
200L build (call me MrGreedy!)
