is the bag reuseable?
rochelle on May 15, 2015
Best Answer: Each bag is good to be reused, with some rinsing and cleaning after each use. I would accept quite a few uses out of each one with care, but it will wear and break eventually. Just inspect it for signs of wear before starting!

I'm thinking of purchasing this BIAB kit. Besides purchasing the kettle separately, is there anything else I need to buy?
rochelle on May 18, 2015
Best Answer: This is more of an add on to our essential or deluxe brewing starter kit, as you still need fermentors, transfer and bottling equipment. But this kit includes everything you need to make the jump to BIAB, just need the kettle. We highly recommend starting in extract batches and all that equipment is usable in BIAB.

Hello, I'm looking to try BIAB brewing, coming from extract brewing. I've done a fair amount of extract brewing, and I'm used to 5-gallon yields. I don't have the equipment to accommodate 3-gallon yields (3-gallon carboy, etc.). My instinct tells me to simply order two of these kits (yields 6-gallons) and brew them together at the same time using my existing equipment (I have a FastFerment conical fermentor which can accommodate up to 7.5 gallons).

Is there something that I'm missing or not understanding? Is it recommended to stick with a 3-gallon batch, or is it as simple as purchasing two BIAB kits and brewing them at the same time on brew day?

Please advise.

Best regards.

Best Answer: I've recently switched from extract to BIAB as well and have only done a couple of batches with the process, so make sure you enjoy a nice grain of salt with my advice. Let's look at your options.

If you were to just brew one single batch you'd have a significant amount of extra head space at the top of your fermenter at which point the biggest risk I can think of is potential oxidation.

If by "brew together at the same time" you mean to sequentially brew one after the other and then ferment them both in the same vessel, you'll be just fine (you'll just have a long brew day is all, it usually takes me about 4 hours to do a single BIAB batch on the stove).

If you mean to brew them both at the same time concurrently I think you'll have a bit of a challenge on your hands. I recently brewed a batch using 10 lbs of grain with my BIAB system. I got the impression that I might not want to push the setup much beyond that. To double up it looks like you'll be using about 17 lbs which sounds like a lot to me. If you go this rout you'll probably have to use less water then the instructions recommend (5.5 gal per batch), unless you've got a kettle capable of handling over 11 gallons well. I also found that in the first batch I did I did not experience the water loss that the recipe anticipates so I wound up with a low gravity when I used 5.5 gal as a starting point. In a subsequent batch I used 2 quarts per lb of grain and I got better results (although results may vary based on personal setup). Your hop utilization will also be affected by the volume in the boil kettle (how big of a concern that is, I'm not sure). Come the end of the day will you get beer? sure. Will it be decent? probably. However, if you go this route you might have some logistical challenges to deal with depending on your setup.

Good luck and happy brewing.

The video says the kit comes with a 7.5 gal kettle, yet it's not listed in the product details. Which is correct?
Treavor M on Jun 16, 2015
Best Answer: That video unfortunately was made when the starter kit was more expensive and included a kettle. The build listed on the website is everything it comes with.

Is this like an extract with specialty grain kit, except instead of a few grains in the bag and extracts it's all the malts in to the bag?
Conner L on May 19, 2015
Best Answer: The main differences are that you have to do a full volume boil of about 4 gallons, it produces 3 gallons of beer, and you rely entirely on the malted grains for sugars. It is the advanced process of all grain, with the convenience of steeping specialty grains. You need a 8 gallon or larger pot to make these beers.
