Brew In A Bag 3 Gallon System

Brew In A Bag 3 Gallon System

Product Review (submitted on August 5, 2013):
The BIAB method makes all grain brewing very approachable and fun. There is minimal equipment needed and with the type of results I've been obtaining, it has been well worth the investment. With respect to this system, it pretty much has everything needed to get started. The kettle is decent, but a bit thin; with that being said, I've been able to hold my mash temperatures for the recommended 90 minutes within a few degrees by just securing old towels around the kettle with bungee cords and piling towels on top of the lid. The supplied nylon bag is plenty big and durable. I scorched mine on the edge while raising the temperature to mash-out, so just be cognizant of the excess material! Overall I've been very happy with my purchase, and so far have brewed 3/4 BIAB kits that NB offers and have nailed the O.G. everytime. I have found that I like the three gallon yield too - since we demolish the end product so quickly, it forces me to brew more often and keeps my skills sharp! The only 'negative' is that the selection of BIAB kits is limited to 4; hope to see more soon. I would recommend the BIAB method to anyone who is wanting to take their brewing to the next level, and this system is a great place to start.
