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.

Stainless Steel False Bottom for BIAB

BIABbottom15-2T

Stainless Steel False Bottom designed to keep your BIAB bag off the bottom of your kettle.

More from Brew Hardware

“First is a false bottom specifically designed for Brew In A Bag process. When you use a mesh bag in a pot, whether it’s directly fired on a burner or heated electrically, you want to keep the bag off the bottom. Typical homebrew false bottoms have really small holes and cut off the free flow that mesh bags are know for. Another less desirable choice is a steamer rack or tray that is found in kitchen shops, but none of those are stainless steel.

Our units start with 1.25mm 304SS welded wire mesh on 1/2″ centers. The mesh is supported by a double outer ring, both on top and bottom of the mesh and a pair of cross braces across the middle. This support material is nearly 1/4” in diameter an very sturdy. The legs are made of M8 metric bolts and are threaded into five nuts that are welded to the mesh. This modular leg style allows for just about any height you need just by changing out the length of the bolts.

OPTIONS:
You have the choice of several lengths during purchase, electable in the drop down menu. Note that if you select “no legs”, the screen still has the welded nuts that will accept legs in the future. Without the bolt legs, the screen will sit about 1/4″ off the bottom supported by the bottom rolled ring.

While it uses a max of 5 legs, you can use it without the center leg in case your heating element is in the way.

Again, make no mistake about it. If you see another product like this on any restaurant supply store, amazon or ebay, know that they are all chrome plated steel and they will rust.”

 

This is available in three sizes, depending on your kettle – 13″, 14″ and 17.5″
