2 x Burner Stands – 220k BTU – $139.19 w/stacking sales

2 Burner System 14'' Burner Stands 200,000 BTU

2 x 220 BTU Propane Burners

About, from AIH:
“We did it. All of our suppliers told us we were nuts. For years, the BTU’s on outdoor burners have been going down. What with deep-fried turkey burn the deck down liquid fire running down the drive-way, you can’t blame our wholesalers for wanting to lower their insurance premiums and with that, BTUs.

Customer comments and message board woes have not escaped our attention, Homebrewers want more. Nobody would do it for us, so we did it ourselves.

We’ve designed a stand and assembled a burner with a 10 psi regulator, a brass control valve and 48″ of LP Hose. (Hose type may vary based on availability) These burners will top out at a whopping 220,000 BTUs, just like the days when deep frying a turkey(and homebrewing) was deemed insane!

With that being said, by purchasing this burner you assume all responsibilities for not setting you, your friend, your house, your friend’s house… your friend’s cat, on fire. You should also be completely prepared and expect to singe arm (or eyebrow) hair.

These burners are made for homebrewing. They are 14″ square across the top for a large stock pot (Designed for 1/2 and 1/4 Barrels) They are 11″ tall.
Perfect for full boils and all-grain brewing.”

As of this posting, this combo is marked down to $159.99.  Check product page for up to the minute price, description and availability.

Stacks With: AIH is discounting most things by 13%.  This sale works with these burners and makes them just $139.13.

BIAB: Brew in a Bag – Easy All Grain Homebrew! – Gear, Resources & Reviews

Brew in a Bag, also known as BIAB is a bit of a misnomer.  Brewing in synonym for boiling.  We’re not really boiling in a bag.  BIAB deals with the mashing, lautering and sparging phase of all grain brewing.  What’s really going on is Mash in a Bag or MIAB.  Having said that, BIAB is the term that’s commonly used and we’ll stick with that.

What is BIAB and how is it different from traditional mashing?

In traditional all grain homebrewing a mash takes place in a mash vessel aptly called a mash tun.  During the mash enzymes convert complex carbohydrates into simple sugars that can be fermented by brewer’s yeast.  Homebrew mash tuns take many forms but a typical setup is a cooler combined with a false bottom or screen.  See my post – Hands On Review: Brew Hardware’s Cooler Mash Tun Conversion Kit – Making a Mash Tun – for an example.  After the mash is complete a sparge takes place to rinse residual sugars from the now spent grains.  This can take a couple of different forms in homebrewing either fly/continuous sparging or batch sparging.

in BIAB we simply substitute a bag filter for the false bottom and any required fittings and ball valves.  The cooler is typically replaced by your boil kettle.  Same chemistry behind the scenes and the same basic outcome – complex carbohydrates converted to simple sugars ready to be fermenter.  Just a change in equipment.
