FS: good BIAB bag and stainless mesh false bottom

Postby andrewmaixner » Mon Apr 03, 2017 12:29 pm

Interested in trying BIAB, or scaling up your current system to do 10/15 gallon batches? Also would work for a mash tun lining and bottom.

This works very nicely for standard BIAB, I regularly got 80%-85% with pouring a gallon or two through the grain/bag followed by a good squeeze. Selling because I wanted to run a recirculating eBIAB setup, and it does not work well for pumped recirculation due to mesh size / flow issues. I upgraded to a stainless mesh basket.

$30 for both (new/shipped is $75+), or make your next batch a double and I'll trade for a fermenter/keg of a dark wort/beer (time is my limiting factor now, skipping a mash/boil/clean day is really handy).

This is the top-of-the-line reinforced stitched brew bag. The bag claims "62 Quart - Outer diameters between 13" and 16" & height up to 21" but actually fits more. I've been using it in a 20Gal 15.25"Wx24"H kettle.

False bottom is the first run of this: https://www.brewhardware.com/product_p/biabbottom15.htm
A little less solidly built than the new version, but still all 304 stainless. Has two sets of legs, 3.5" and 2" heights. 14.75" diameter.

No interest for a week, so I'll post it externally too now.

I thought about the bottom, but since I recirculate in my system with a bent dollar store pizza pan (which I replace about every 10 brews for another $1 one) and the recirculation actually works on my system (ask me to show you my burns from when a silicone tubing line popped off a month ago... they FINALLY healed enough to be not be oozing).. you kinda talked me out of it.

I would like feedback on your basket though. Is it an Arbor Fab one?

Gave the bag to Josh to try out.
False bottom gone too.

Yes, basket is from arbor fab / Utah filter / Utah biodiesel. Works great! https://goo.gl/photos/gkuuU55rpdBnr6qp7
